Finished weld is not only one criterion for choice of any method of welding. Market conditions force companies to find any advantages over competitors such as higher speed of welding, cost reduction as well as labour conditions improvement. CORGON® welding mixtures not only shield a weld but also improve labour conditions, which has positive impact on welder’s health.
Decrease of welding aerosols gross extraction, smoke and noxious gases
Long-term exposure to smoke and welding aerosols can lead to silicoses of lungs, the professional disease of welders. Emissions measuring have indicated that certified CORGON® mixtures reduce mass extraction of smoke, vapor, metal oxide and soot in 2 or 3 times in comparison with inexpensive carbon dioxide. It means that there are in 2 or 3 times less harmful impurities in respiratory organs of welder. The main component in CORGON® mixture is the chemically neutral argon, which does not have any harmful effect on health.
Decrease of noise level and dustiness of working area
We used to the fact that welding and cleaning are closely connected. There is intolerable noise and extreme degree of dust level during cleaning, and any kinds of personal protective equipment don’t help. At the same time, correct mode adjustment and high quality CORGON® mixtures don’t allow spatters to be formed even during usage of old domestic welding semiautomatic devices. In some cases there is no need in cleaning after welding.
