Ferrolinx® Plus

The best gas for carbon steel MAG welding

Ferrolinx® Plus is our best gas for MAG welding carbon steel. The specially formulated mixture improves weld quality and reduces rejects, gives excellent penetration characteristics and is tolerant to variations in weld parameter settings. With higher productivity being achieved, users see up to 19% increase in manual weld speeds when compared with conventional mixtures. Not only does Ferrolinx® Plus give a smooth, flat weld finish, users see reduced clean-up times due to spatter being minimised.

Because it is supplied in 300 bar packages, cylinder stocks can be cut. Also, as Ferrolinx® Plus is suitable for all material thickness and all consumable types (solid, metal and flux cored wires) cylinder stocks can be reduced even further.

Not only does Ferrolinx® Plus help increase welding productivity, you can be assured that you are protecting the work environment too with minimal ozone generation.
