Argon in the Atmosphere in Mexico

We are well aware that the air on Earth is made up of multiple gases, oxygen and nitrogen having the highest amounts. Yet Argon is another gas that although does not have as high of a concentration in the atmosphere, has shown itself to be just as important across multiple industries.

Argon is an inert, colorless and unscented gas that only inhabits approximately 1% of the Earth’s atmosphere. Even though the concentration of Argon is not as abundant as Nitrogen and Oxygen, it is used throughout various trades. In museums, Argon has traditionally been used for historic preservation. Historically significant documents, like the Declaration of Independence and the Magna Carta, are conserved using Argon. Unlike Oxygen, Argon does not decay the paper or ink of these, especially delicate records. On the opposite spectrum, in the welding industry Argon is utilized as a gas shield for arc welding.

Considering the diverse uses for this gas, there remains a constant demand for the gas. For this reason, specialty gases like Argon are usually sold in smaller capacities and containers.
