HydroStar® Blends

HYDROSTAR BLENDS: HYDROGEN SHIELDING GASES & WELDING GAS MIXTURES

HydroStar® shielding gas blends are primarily used for joining austenitic stainless steels with the GTAW process. Hydrogen increases heat input to the base materials while providing a reducing atmosphere to enhance weld cleanliness. Significant advantages in travel speed over pure argon can be attained.

In order to integrate our blend lines into the product lines existing within our Nippon Gases Europe Group, starting from 1st March 2020 the HydroStar® blends will be available with the new trade names SANARC® and FORMINGAS, whilst keeping the same technical features.

The following conversion table contains all the new trade names. To find out more about the different blends we offer CLICK HERE.
