Hobbyweld 5

(93% Argon, 5% Carbon Dioxide, 2% Oxygen)

As the most popular MIG welding gas mix, there are an abundance of benefits Hobbyweld 5 can provide.

This gas is simple to use; it achieves fast travel speeds which results in minimal spatter. As it provides good penetration and fusion, this gas is an optimum choice for MIG welding. This gas is usually used to restore classic cars and motorcycles.

Hobbyweld 5 is recommended for use with sheet or thin sections of mild steel at a thickness of less than 7mm. For thicker steel, please look at Hobbyweld 15.
