TIG Welding Gas

Adams Gas are Proud Suppliers of Gas for TIG Welding

We supply inert argon gas as a predominant shielding gas for TIG welders. For hobby and trade welders, we can accommodate your specific needs via our range of cylinder sizes.

Our 50L industrial welding gas cylinders are ideal for customers who would typically go through one 50L cylinder every 3 months.

For businesses who’s TIG welding needs are slightly less demanding we also offer 20L trade welding gas cylinders, which would be expected to last for 6 months.

For hobby welders we offer 9L hobby welding gas cylinders and finally, for welders who need to be able to be more flexible and dynamic, such as construction site welders, we also offer 2L porta welding gas cylinders. These compact portable cylinders are a great option for engineers that need to move around in space restricted areas, for example, air conditioning engineers.

 

The Benefits of TIG Welding

TIG stands for tungsten inert gas and its technical name is gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW). The tungsten electrode delivers a current to the welding arc and is itself non-consumable. The tungsten electrode is protected (shielded from oxygen) by the inert shielding gas, which is commonly argon.

Unlike MIG welding, with TIG welding the gas does not impact on the weld finish, and the weld finishes are usually high quality and clean. TIG is additionally advantageous due to the non-consumable tungsten, meaning that the electrode does not need to be continuously replaced. In addition, TIG welding can weld more metals than any other process, including steel, stainless steel, copper, brass, gold and aluminium, to name a few. It is a versatile welding process suitable for a multitude of applications.

TIG welding does not require a flux due to the shielding nature of the argon gas used and there is minimal smoke and fumes from this type of welding, although this does also depend on how clean the metal is that is being welded.

Finally, TIG welding can be performed in a variety of positions such as flat, overhead and vertical welds. This flexibility of TIG welding further enhances its ability to be used across a range of industries and applications. From building aircraft to building roll cages to repairing tools to creating art, TIG can be used for most industries and with most metal types.
