What are the advantages of using CO 2 for making GMA welds on steel?

To determine

The advantages of using CO2 for making GMA welds on steel.

Explanation

The advantages of using CO2 for welding are listed below:

  • Higher welding speed:

    CO2 has lower density as compared to argon thus, provides less resistance in the welding of metal.

  • Good penetration of material:

    Using CO2 gas help to maintain the arc voltage, using CO2 gas prevents the heat to escape thus, the electrode have enough heat to completely fuse with the weld metal
