ARCAL™ offers a full range of high-quality, ready-to-use shielding gas solutions.

Compliant with ISO 14175 and AWS-A5.32 standards, our pure, stable gases and mixtures are strictly prepared and packaged for safe handling. Whichever product you choose, you will receive the high-quality shielding gas that can be mixed on-site or delivered in cylinders.

A supply mode adapted to your needs ARCAL™ products are available in cylinders. Whatever your consumption, we provide our gases and mixtures with the best supply mode ensuring quality, consistency and ease of use.

High productivity and overall cost management is obtained by:

  • High welding speeds
  • Excellent penetration profiles
  • Extra low spattering
  • Excellent pool appeal

High quality results are due to:

  • Controlled impurity level
  • Consistent and homogeneous mix
  • Extra low humidity and oxygen levels particularly in plasma or TIG processes

Four ready-to-weld argon mixture solutions cover virtually all welding application needs. Each mixture was designed to be reliable and simple, yet high performing.



ARCAL™ Force is our most powerful, ready-to-weld solution for MAG welding of heavy carbon steel structures.

From earthmoving and agricultural equipment to bridge building and ship modules, ARCAL™ Force was engineered with heavy use in mind. No matter the surface – oxidized or contaminated, gapped or mismatched – ARCAL™ Force is ready for your toughest and most challenging welding applications.
