A multipurpose gas for the automotive manufacturing industry

Argon, because of its inert property, is used across numerous applications to help improve quality as well as increase efficiency and yield in automotive component manufacturing. Its inert nature allows it to be used to protect molten and heated metal during processing. Argon is used in a variety of applications including metal production, metals processing, metal fabrication, electronics, and more. We offer compressed argon gas and liquid argon in a variety of purities and concentrations. Its unique properties make it a great choice for processes such as Hot Isostatic Pressing, vacuum furnace quenching, atomization to make metal powders. Additionally, it is used for processing and treating metals which form nitrides, such as titanium, aluminum, and stainless steel.

Our experienced applications teams across the globe can use their industry and application knowledge to provide you with a compressed or liquid argon supply and technology solution to meet your unique needs.
