Backing Tape



ARGWELD® 'Backing Tape' has been designed to adhere to the backside of a weld to allow single-sided welding from the front.

The tape would ideally be used for:
one-sided welding of weld able metal
to achieve a flatter, smooth, coke free welding bead to minimize the need for post-weld grinding and cleaning.
 


Common metals welded with ARGWELD® 'Backing Tape' include:
carbon
stainless
chrome-moly and duplex steels
copper nickel
cast iron
 

The tape comprises a 75 mm wide, heat resistant aluminum sticky tape, in the center of which is a 25 mm wide band of woven glass fiber cloth.



The material is available in two grades:
light duty for use up to 80 amps
heavy duty for use up to 160 amps
 
It is possible to weld onto the tape with MIG, Stick, TIG or plasma welding processes, so long as the recommended current levels are not exceeded.

The lightweight grade comes in 25 meter lengths and the heavyweight in 12.5 meter lengths.

If lengths are needed to be joined, rolls of the sticky aluminum tape without the fiber are available from Huntingdon Fusion Techniques Limited, allowing a small length to be cut off to join two lengths of the ARGWELD® 'Backing Tape' together.
