More about ARCAL™ Force

More about ARCAL™ Force 18 % carbon dioxide in argon

ARCAL™ Force is one of the four premium products in the ARCAL™ Reference Line - Air Liquide's standardized product line with consistent product specifications.

Applications of ARCAL™ Force

With ARCAL™ Force you use an excellent shielding gas for your welding work. You make a good decision with this brand product for mag welding (metal active gas welding). It can be used universally for MAG welding of unalloyed and low-alloy steels (such as mild steel), but is preferred for welding thick plates or even large thin sheets.

What are my advantages of  ARCAL™ Force?

ARCAL™ Force is the safe solution for worry-free gas-shielded welding. The high reliability for daily use is the first and main criterion for the correct welding gas. A second selection criterion is ease of use. Last but not least, the consistent high quality of the gas (low-porosity weld seam) ensures optimal welding quality.

Your advantages in detail:


• 18 % carbon dioxide in argon

• Complies with ISO 14175-M21-ArC-18

• Very low level of H2O and N2 impurities


• All positions of MAG welding

• High tolerance to preparation defects of the parts to be welded

• Suitable for both manual and automatic welding, in solid and cored wires


• Very good penetration thanks to its high CO2 content 

• Low porosity weld seam

Properties and features of  ARCAL™ Force

ARCAL™ Force has a composition of 18% CO2 in argon. The product is standardized according to ISO 14175-M21-ArC-18 and integrated in the M 21 group.

The gas composition is characterized by a soft spray arc and ensures good to very good penetration thanks to its high CO2 content. The shielding gas is suitable for all arc types. The following overview shows the properties and special features of ARCAL™ Force:  

  • good performance, especially with thick plates

  • universally applicable, thus any required quality of welded joint possible

  • suitable for all welding positions

  • In the short arc, good gap bridgeability and suitability for constrained positions

When is ARCAL™ Force the right product for me?

ARCAL™ Force is suitable for both manual and automated welding. It ensures you very good penetration ratios and seam qualities. This mixed gas is one of the high-performance welding shielding gases and can be used for all welding positions. Even when it comes to difficult conditions - such as surface-contaminated workpieces - you are safe with ARCAL™ Force.

Supply forms ARCAL™ Force

ARCAL™ Force is available in different gas cylinders for every requirement with easy handling and optimal quality. The product is available in gas cylinders with innovative valves, in cylinder bundles and in a liquid supply form. Now newly added: the revolutionary Qlixbi gas supply system in the new gas cylinders. You can find more information at
