Original Press Release:
Clean, Tidy Welds Result From Revised Backing Tape
Backing tape used in the welding of seams or runs help to prevent weld failures and produce flat, slag-free welds requiring no grinding or backgouging. Weld Backing Tape from Huntingdon Fusion Techniques has been engineered for maximum heat resistance and to provide a flat, close-fitting surface under the weld. Helping to eliminate rewelds and reworking due to defects, thus decreasing costs, the tape also increases weld productivity, cutting setup and weld times significantly.
Weld Backing Tape is manufactured to the highest standards by a company with a reputation for quality and innovation. Huntingdon Fusion Techniques is a pioneer in the field of weld purging and is the manufacturer of the famous MulitiStrike tungsten electrodes. The tape is inexpensive and supplied in rolls of 25 metres.
The metallic, adhesive tape has a glass fibre strip which is held up against the weld preparation area and maintains the weld in the same plane as the plates or tubes being joined. In certain circumstances, the use of backing tape can replace purging of the underside as oxygen is absent and coking, oxidisation or discolouration prevented. It is therefore suitable for situations where the use of purge gas is impractical or expensive.
Weld Backing Tape from Huntingdon Fusion Techniques is available in two versions, catering for weld applications up to 80 Amps and heavy duty applications up to 160 Amps. In each case, the glass fibre strip is 25mm wide, making it ideal for even wide weld channels in thick-walled material.
