Helium:

Helium is a colourless odourless, tasteless and nontoxic and non flammable gas. Helium is used as a shield for the weld pool in welding applications. It can be used on its own or mixed with Argon and Carbon Dioxide. With the addition of Helium in the weld pool shield, one will find welding travel speeds and penetrations increased.
