Epoxy Oilserv Nigeria Limited, Number One Supplier of Argon Gas in Nigeria
As a key ingredient in welding, argon gas is a valuable tool that allows welders to fuse durable welds. Argon is an odorless, colorless, and tasteless gas that makes up 0.93% of the Earth's atmosphere.

"Argon as a shielding gas produces cleaner and stronger welds. Argon is a stable, nonflammable, and nontoxic gas. It is an ideal shield welding gas because it disperses contaminating elements in the atmosphere and protects welds from oxidation and corrosion. Argon is non-flammable and does not support combustion. With the welding process sometimes reaching 7000 degrees Fahrenheit (ca. 3,871 °C), it is a safe option for welders. In addition to being nonflammable, argon is also non toxic." said Bernard Nebo- Epoxy Oilserv Welding Engineer.
Argon is a noble gas and does not react with other gases. Other members of the noble gas group include helium, neon, xenon, radon, and krypton. This exclusive group is also known as "inert gases" because they do not easily react with other elements or compounds. In fact, the definition of the word inert is "chemically inactive."
Why do Welders use Argon Gas?
Argon is used for welding due to its low cost, shielding gas capabilities, and stability.
In addition to not reacting with other elements, it doesn't burst into flames when exposed to the extreme temperatures involved in welding.
Its natural abundance in the earth's atmosphere also makes it an affordable gas option for welders. A welding engineer will enjoy the benefits of an effective shielding gas. These types of gases displace other elements in the atmosphere, protect the integrity of their welds, and provide arc stability.
The Dangers of Argon
Argon can cause asphyxiation and other dangers if inhaled excessively. If excessive inhalation of argon occurs, it is important to move to an area with fresh air as quickly as possible. Oxygen should be administered if there is difficulty in breathing. If an individual is not breathing, move them into the fresh air and administer artificial respiration methods (such as CPR). Emergency medical help should also be called.
