Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT® released its super heavy duty Weld Backing Tape™ that provides the support to produce perfect weld underbeads when welding with currents of up to 600 Amps.
The Weld Backing Tape™ is a glass fiber system that supports and protects the weld root from oxidation. It will trap the inert gas from the weld torch to hold the gas surrounding the weld pool, effectively providing a back purge facility. Four grades are available for use up to 80, 160, 240 or 600 Amps.
Each Weld Backing Tape comprises a 3″ (75mm) wide aluminum adhesive tape backing strip with a 1″ (25mm) wide band of woven glass fiber matting running down the center. The glass fiber matting has differing thicknesses to match the welding current in use.”
The Weld Backing Tape can be used with MIG, TIG (GTAW) or Plasma (PAW) welding for the joining of all weldable metals without change to the chemistry or metallurgy of the weld.
