Stargon Blends

Stargon CS & SS: Shielding Gas & Welding Gas Mixtures

At Praxair, we offer two different Stargon blends, Stargon CS and Stargon SS. Stargon CS blend is a precise mixture of argon (Ar), carbon dioxide (CO2) and oxygen (O2) and is a universal shielding gas for carbon steel welding applications. Stargon SS blend is a carefully controlled blend of argon, carbon dioxide and nitrogen that is designed for joining a wide variety of stainless steels. Find out more about these two blends below and see if they’re right for your operations.

Stargon SS

 

 

 

 

 

This blend is designed for joining a wide variety of stainless steels. It is well-suited for all-position welding as it can be used with all types of metal transfer. Stargon SS blend produces excellent quality welds when joining light gauge material with short-circuiting transfer and offers cost savings when compared with the high-helium content gases currently used today.
