HYDROSTAR BLENDS: HYDROGEN SHIELDING GASES & WELDING GAS MIXTURES
Our HydroStar ® shielding gas blends are primarily used for joining austenitic stainless steels with the GTAW process. Hydrogen increases heat input to the base materials while providing a reducing atmosphere to enhance weld cleanliness. Significant advantages in travel speed over pure argon can be attained. Find out more about the different blends we offer below.
|HydroStar H-2||This blend is used for manual welding and is suitable for use with GTAW when welding 300 series austenitic stainless steels. It is also used as a back purge gas on stainless steel materials.||H-2 (H2-Ar mixtures, nonflammable) (67.1KB)HydroStar|
|HydroStar H-5||This blend is used for manual welding applications and is preferred on material thicknesses above 1/16 inch. It is also suitable for use with GTAW when welding 300 series austenitic stainless steels and as a back purge gas on stainless steel materials.||H-5, H-10, H-35 (69.9KB)HydroStar|
|HydroStar H-10||This blend is preferred for high-speed GTAW mechanized applications on austenitic stainless steel.||H-5, H-10, H-35 (69.9KB)HydroStar|
|HydroStar H-35||It is recommended as the plasma gas with plasma arc gauging when cutting aluminum and stainless steel, and when cut quality and face appearance are critical.||H-5, H-10, H-35 (69.9KB)HydroStar|
|HydroStar PBSS||This blend is designed for all-position welding of austenitic stainless steels using pulsed spray transfer. Optimum weld quality and cleanliness is achieved at high levels of productivity.||PBSS (69.9KB)HydroStar|
