An inert gas with unique properties used in a variety of industrial and analytical applications
Argon is a non-flammable gas that forms 0.9 per cent of the earth's atmosphere.
Most commonly used in the metal industry for metal production, processing and fabrication, it can be used as a pure gas for certain shielding, blanketing, annealing and hot isostatic pressing (HIPing) applications. It can also be used as part of a mixture with other gases, in particular carbon dioxide, oxygen, nitrogen, hydrogen or helium, depending on the process and material.
Its inert properties make argon popular in other industries such as the glass industry for double glazing, the food industry for removing oxygen from wine barrels, and analytical laboratories who use it as a carrier gas in gas chromatography (GC) and in ICP-MS equipment.
Air Products offers compressed argon gas and liquid argon in a variety of purities and in various modes of supply around the world thanks to our network of storage and transfill facilities.

The Integra® Cylinder — Our Innovation for Safer Welding
- Reduced risk of cylinder falling, shorter and more stable than traditional cylinder
- Reduced risk of regulator damage, regulator fully contained within protective guard
- Reduced exposure to pressure hazard, built-in regulator controls pressure and cannot be removed
- Smaller, lighter and more manoeuvrable than traditional cylinder
- Snap-on connection to cylinder (no need for spanners)
- Hand-operated on/off valve (no need for bottle keys)
- Never buy, repair or calibrate a regulator again
- Pre-set flow eliminates set-up time
