Maxx® Gases​

Improved productivity, fewer rejects and a better working environment

Whatever you are welding, Air Products’ innovative Maxx® gases range will give you superior results. Formulated to boost output through a unique combination of weldability, weld quality and higher welding speeds, you will achieve improved productivity with fewer rejects.

Our Maxx® gases range is also designed to protect people at work, by generating the lowest levels of ozone and fume.

Extensively tested by Air Products’ own specialists, by its customers and by independent accredited laboratories, including TWI (formerly The Welding Institute, UK), this range has been proven to improve performance.

Benefits of Maxx® Gases

Maxx® gases have a positive impact on various aspects of the welding operation leading to an overall lower cost per metre welded:

  • Lower reject rates – greater weld penetration, minimal defects
  • Visual improvements – smoother, cleaner, brighter welds
  • Higher productivity – up to 35% increase in manual weld travel speeds and less post-weld cleaning
  • Lower wire consumption – flatter welds and minimal spatter generation
  • Reduced power consumption

Don't let spatter grind you down

Spatter is made up of many thousands of droplets of molten filler metal that escape from the weld pool and are scattered around the work area during welding. These small, round balls of molten metal can fall on the welder, workpiece, the floor and surrounds. Sometimes they stick and are difficult to remove, sometimes they cool and form tiny balls of metal. It is not possible to completely eliminate spatter from a MIG/MAG welding process. However, the objective should be to reduce as much as possible. The following article briefly explains how spatter occurs, how to remove or prevent it, and explores the hidden costs that spatter creates
