Original Hobbyweld 5

A popular shielding gas, ideally suited for MIG welding, in particular sheet metal and thin sections of mild steel under 7mm in thickness, such as car bodywork and light sheet work. Hobbyweld 5 is a unique blend of Argon, Carbon Dioxide and Oxygen gas mix (often referred to as a tri-mix or an argon shield); it is very easy to use and provides a sound weld at very little cost. This gas mix offers a great number of benefits over using straight carbon dioxide for welding; it decreases the chances of porosity, welding spatter and oxidation. Hobbyweld 5 is our number one vehicle restoration gas and is a favoured mix with customers restoring classic cars and motorcycles. In short Hobbyweld 5 is a rent free welding gas cylinder with a number of benefits - it’s easy to see why it is the fastest selling gas in our range.
