CO2 In Metalworking

CO2 is widely used as a shielding gas in MIG/MAG welding, offering protection against oxidation during the welding process. This use not only improves the welding rate but also minimises the need for post-welding treatment. Its combination with argon further enhances welding efficiency.

Hardening of Casting Moulds

In addition to its role in welding, CO2’s anti-corrosive properties are utilised in the hardening of casting moulds. This application is crucial for ensuring the durability and quality of metal products.
