CORGON 12S2 is a three-component mixture comprising 86% argon, 12% carbon dioxide and 2% oxygen. Designed for maximum performance, it is the most stable and fluid shielding gas of its type. It ensures low spatter levels along with good penetration and sidewall fusion. This reduces weld defects and minimises reject levels. A wide current/voltage operating window makes it a popular choice among welders.
CORGON 12S2 produces smooth, flat welds with low levels of reinforcement. This means it requires less welding wire than other mixtures. The fluid nature of the molten weld metal ensures good wetting action at the edges of the weld and the parent material, reducing the likelihood of stress defects.
This product has been specifically developed for MAG welding of carbon and low-alloy steels across a range of material thicknesses, particularly in the 3 to 12mm range. It can be used manually or with robotic or automatic equipment.
