Argon

Argon is a colorless, odorless and tasteless inert gas which has no toxic properties. A member of the rare gas chemical family, argon constitutes less than 1% of the atmosphere and is heavier than air. Liquid argon at -302ºF is clear and odorless.

Liquid argon is classified as Type II by the compressed Gas Association (CGA). CGA G-11.1, Type II, Grade C is considered commercial liquid argon standards.

Keen guarantees commercial grade product delivered as a liquid meets the commercial CGA specification listed. Keen does not normally guarantee commercial grade product delivered as a compressed gas meets the gaseous specification listed because gas purities are affected by normal cylinder filling practices and process procedures which may compromise the integrity of the product.
