About MIG Gas
Metal Inert Gas (MIG Gas) welding was developed during World War II as a fast, portable process to create strong, durable joints. Inert gasses used for MIG welding are Argon, Helium and Co2, and being inert in nature means they do not react to anything, unlike non inert gasses like oxygen. The gasses shield the weld from the air that causes weld defects, such as porosity.
MIG Gas Welding
MIG welding uses an arc of electricity to create a short circuit. The intense heat produced by this short circuit process, melts the metals, allowing them to mix together and create a strong join.
MIG Gas Welding Metals
MIG Welding Aluminium
You can use pure argon or an argon/helium mix. The helium improves the appearance of the weld finish, but this is not essential, and for most applications pure argon is adequate.
MIG Welding Advantages
It allows for a wide range of metals and metals of varying thickness to be firmly joined. It is suitable for both novices and experts. MIG welding creates an exceptionally strong weld. There is minimum weld splatter. It is easy to learn and it is the fastest type of welding.
MIG Welding Tips
If you want the weld to be strong, taking 5 minutes to clean your metal and grind down any edges that are being joined, will really help.
