7 Ways You Could Benefit from Ceramic Weld Backing Immediately

Ceramic weld backing is a consumable item used in root pass heavy-gauge MIG welding.

Applications include structural steel fabrication, pressure vessel manufacture, shipbuilding and pipeline seam welding.

Here are 7 reasons you could benefit from using ceramic weld backing:

  1. Ceramic weld backing offers x-ray quality back beads on root pass.
  2. Wider heat receptive pressure sensitive foil for improved adhesion.
  3. Eradicates the need for gouging and grinding as welding can be carried out from a single side with full penetration.
  4. Thus eliminating the risk of timely re-work and costly rejects.
  5. Allows the use of increased welding currents as the ceramics tiles support the active weld pool.
  6. Weld pool support provided by the backing also allows for increased welding speeds, decreasing arc energy and subsequently Heat Affected Zone.
  7. As the root area is fully enclosed, oxidation of the weld surface is reduced, eliminating the need for post-weld cleaning.
