Welding gas often named as a shielding gas are the inert or semi-inert gases in nature used in numerous welding process commercially. Welding gases are primarily used to protect or shield the welding area from the foreign gases & particles such as water vapor, moisture and the mixture of nitrogen, hydrogen & oxygen gases in the atmosphere. The reaction of these particles with the weld pool creates numerous types of problems such as excessive spatter & inclusion of small holes in the weld pool which leads to porosity. Apart from the above said attributes, major welding gases also plays vital role in defining weld penetration activity, mechanical strength of the finished weld pool and also provides the stability in the welding arc. Commercially there are numerous welding gases available in the market place named carbon dioxide, hydrogen, acetylene, helium, oxygen and argon among others. These gases can be used in their purest form i.e. single alone or can be used in binary form i.e. the combination of the two welding gases such as argon-helium, argon-carbon dioxide, argon-oxygen to name a few. In numerous high end applications the ternary form is used i.e. argon-carbon dioxide- helium mixture. In the above said welding gases, carbon dioxide is the most common welding gas finding penetration in numerous number of applications. Also, carbon dioxide is one of the most stable welding gas used in its purest form. In its purest from carbon dioxide as a welding gas provides deep weld penetration which is helpful in welding of thick materials. There are certain factors needs to be take care of while selecting the welding gas such as finished weld properties and overall cost of the welding gas. These welding gases can be adopted and find application in all types of welding procedures such as laser welding, metal arc welding, fluxed cored welding & oxy fuel welding among others.
Welding Gas Market: Market Dynamics
Welding is one of the integral part of numerous end use industries which includes building & construction, metal manufacturing, automotive, aerospace to name a few. Expansion of these end use industries in the recent past has been created huge demand for welding activities which further creates the demand for welding gases in the recent past. Growing residential & commercial activities in emerging countries is expected to create demand space for welding gases in the near future. Moreover, the excessive use of welding gas in metal fabrication & manufacturing industry is expected to spur the demand for the same over the forecasted period. Despite of their increased adoption and expansion of welding gas universe, there are certain factor which acts as a stumbling block in the way of welding gas market growth. The welding gas product mixture such as oxygen mixture with flammable gas is explosive in nature which further restricts its usage according to the OSHA regulations. Complex process is used in order to handling these type of welding gas mixtures which further increases the overall welding cost.
