Using the Proper Cover Gas
Shielding gas also called cover gas, can make or break a weld. These gases are commonly used in arc welding, including MIG and TIG welding. The gasses are used to protect the weld area from the elements (such as oxygen and water vapor), which can damage or break a weld. Skipping the use of a cover gas or choosing the wrong cover gas choice can result in excessive splatter making the weld more difficult, or even a weak or porous weld that could break.
