Quick Overview


  • Aluminium casings
  • Ship building and armoured vehicles
  • Heavy aluminium fabrication
  • Road and rail transport
  • Chemical and petrochemical plants
  • Copper and aluminium busbars



  • Produces a flat bead shape with low levels of reinforcement, less clean-up and lower defects
  • Can reduce or eliminate the need for preheating due to the increased energy transfer across the welding arc. This is achieved due to the increased helium content producing a focused arc
  • Increased welding speeds and lower distortion, whilst maintaining good fusion profiles
  • The fluid weld minimises porosity and other defects
  • Greater thermal efficiency when used in TIG, MIG and plasma welding copper alloys. Flatter welds with less reinforcement are also produced
