Products and applications of Argon gas
Argon is a colorless, odorless, non-flammable and non-toxic noble gas. The most important properties of pure argon gas is the inertness and the visible spectral emission in the plasma state. Even at very high temperatures, argon remains inert and does not form compounds with oxygen. It is heavier than air.
Industrial Manufacturing of Argon Gas
Air contains a concentration of approximately 0.93 % argon gas. Based on this, it is economical and common to produce pure argon gas with air separation plants on an industrial scale. Apart from oxygen and nitrogen, air separation units can produce significant amounts of argon gas.

Applications of Argon 5.0 and 6.0
Due to the inert properties of argon, it is well suited as a shielding gas for metal processing such as welding. The ionizability of argon is another important property. It allows various plasma based applications in analytics. Typical examples of high purity Argon gas applications are the following:
Argon 5.0 or 6.0 finds application for various analytical measuring techniques such as the active gas in inductively coupled plasm (ICP) spectrometry and as carrier gas in gas chromatography (GC). Further examples are the use as a zero gas or purge gas. It is also applied as a filling gas for proportional counters.
Due to the low conductive and convective heat transfer properties, Argon gas is applied as a filling gas sealed between the panes of insulated windows. In this way, Argon helps to minimize heat losses.
