This gas is simple to use and produces a stable arc which results in less spatter and clean up time for the end user, this makes it much more forgiving to the less gifted welder.

Hobbyweld 5 provides good penetration and fusion, making this gas is an optimum choice for MIG welding. This gas is popular with vehicle restoration enthusiasts and provides the best weld quality for bodywork.

This product is recommended for use with sheet or thin sections of mild steel at a thickness of less than 7mm. For thicker steel, please look at Hobbyweld 15.

The Hobbyweld Cylinder Deposit is a one-off, refundable charge – paid alongside the gas fill for your first cylinder. There is no limit to how long you keep the cylinder and you can exchange it as often or as little as you like.

If you need to return the cylinder, take it to any Hobbyweld stockist for a refund (note: You will need your deposit form and a small admin charge applies).

A cost effective alternative for occasional use when compared to monthly or annual rental charges.
