Alumaxx®

One gas that does it all for aluminium

Alumaxx® Plus weld process gas has been specifically designed as the only gas that you need for the high-quality welding of aluminium and its alloys. If you aim for the most exacting standards, you'll need a dedicated gas like Alumaxx® Plus. A multipurpose welding gas, it is specially designed for MIG and TIG welding aluminium and its alloys across all material thickness.

Improved Weld Quality

Low porosity, distortion, oxidisation with excellent weld pool control

Better Weld Penetration

Excellent fusion characteristics and tolerant to variations in weld parameters

Reduced Spatter

Cuts post weld cleaning activity – saving time and money

Alumaxx® Plus weld process gas gives a superior weldability, with a speed of up to 35% faster compared to argon alone. And its low ozone generation provides an improved safer working environment.

Just look at the advantages:

When you aim for the highest standards the elimination of weld metal porosity can be a problem. Alumaxx® Plus gas with its controlled helium addition is all that you need to give you the edge.

Improved productivity

Alumaxx® Plus weld process gas gives you an increase in manual weld speeds of up to 24% in MIG welding and up to 35% in TIG welding compared with argon.

Fewer rejects

Alumaxx® Plus weld process gas is easy to use, gives ultra-low porosity levels and excellent fusion characteristics. This improves weld quality and means fewer rejects.

A better working environment

Because ozone is a health hazard which cannot always be removed by fume extraction equipment, Air Products has concentrated on developing gases that give low ozone exposure levels. The result - a gas that provides a better working environment as well as improved productivity and fewer rejects.
