CORGON 8 is a two-component mixture comprising 92% argon and 8% carbon dioxide. This is a good general-purpose shielding gas for MAG welding of carbon and steel alloys. The amount of spatter and slag islands produced by CORGON 8 are low, making it ideal for applications where post-weld cleaning must be kept to a minimum. By saving time, it cuts manufacturing costs. Low surface oxidation also makes it suitable for applications that require post-weld painting.
CORGON 8 can be used manually or with robotic or automatic equipment and is best suited to material thicknesses between 1 and 8mm, although it can be used successfully outside this band.
Benefits at a Glance
Reduced post-weld cleaning with minimal slag on weld surface
Low surface oxidation for enhanced paintability and reduced clean-up time
Low spatter, resulting in less post-weld cleaning and improved paintability
Improved workshop environment with lower particulate fume levels.
