CORGON 18 is a two-component mixture comprising 82% argon and 18% carbon dioxide. This mixture produces welds with very good penetration and sidewall fusion, especially when dealing with thicker materials. This reduces the number of defects in the weld, cutting down on rejected components. The high CO2 content helps curbs surface contamination from oil, moisture or rust. This reduces pre-weld cleaning and general manufacturing costs.
Ideal for both dip and spray applications, CORGON 18 was specifically developed for MAG welding of carbon and steel alloys across a range of material thicknesses, particularly in the 5 to 12mm range. It can be used manually or with robotic or automatic equipment.
Benefits at a Glance
Good penetration profile for reduced reject rates
Good fusion characteristics for stronger joints
Reduced prep work and reworking through effective action on surface contamination.
