Product nameArgon Ar
Other Names:Argon gas
Grade Standard:Electron Grade,Industrial Grade,Medicine GradeMSDS
Argon is a chemical element with symbol Ar and atomic number 18. It is in group 18 of theperiodic table and is a noble gas. Argon is the third most abundant noble gas in Earth's crust.
Argon is produced industrially by the fractional distillation of liquid air. Argon is mostly used as an inert shielding gas in welding and other high-temperature industrial processes where ordinarily unreactive substances become reactive; for example, an argon atmosphere is used in graphite electric furnaces to prevent the graphite from burning. Argon is also used inincandescent, fluorescent lighting, and other gas discharge tubes. Argon makes a distinctiveblue-green gas laser. Argon is also used in fluorescent glow starters.

Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing)
Argon provides the most inert atmosphere possible throughout the 3-D printing process. During rapid heating and cooling of material, Argon will prevent oxidation of the metal and other reactions and can limit the impact of stress. Argon can also be mixed with other gases to create specialty blends as needed.
Aerospace and Aircraft
Argon is a versatile industrial gas used in welding applications, such as the welding of specialty alloys, and in the production of light bulbs and lasers. As an inert gas, it can also be used to provide an oxygen- and nitrogen- free environment for heat treating processes.
