Aluminum welding without gas

Aluminum welding without gas



Greetings from Schweißfan,


Aluminum welding without gas


The title itself is actually very wrong for the simple reason that you cannot weld aluminum without gas.


Okay, or rather we have to put it another way. Welding aluminum using the TIG process does not work without gas.



So now the question is, why not? It’s actually quite easy to explain, because the gas is also called shielding gas. And it is called that because it quickly protects the gas from oxygen and environmental influences. So that you can make a pore-free, neat and clean weld seam.

The only thing, and we recently did an experiment on this or tested it in a video, is that you can also weld aluminum with electrodes. And of course no shielding gas is needed for this, because the protective sheath is around the electrode.

In one version, it works by welding aluminum without gas. This would be the villa variant of electrode welding where you know that the electrode is protected with a coating that prevents oxygen from reaching the weld pool. This is why electrodes are welded without shielding gas. That would be virtually the only way to weld aluminum without gas
