Argon is present in atmosphere to the extent of about 0.93%. It is colourless, odourless, tasteless and non-toxic gas. It is non-flammable and is a highly inert gas. Aupply modes for Argon are liquid and as compressed gas.


Argon being inert finds applications in industries requiring low reactivity with good stability. Following are the common applications for Argon:

  • Blanketing
  • Degastification in Steel Making
  • Shielding Gas in Metal Fabrication
  • Inerting
  • Purging
  • Lighting Industry
  • Analytical Applications
