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™ Speed is the essential arc welding gas when weld time is a critical factor.

Expertly mixed for high-travel speed and high-deposition rate MAG welding of carbon steels, it is ideal for automatic and robotic applications. Highly adaptable with low fume and spatter emissions that reduces post-welding operations, ARCAL™ Speed is an obvious choice when high productivity is needed without sacrificing quality.
