Argweld® Weld Backing Tape™

Improve Weld Root Profiles!

Extending the HFT® range of products, we manufacture Argweld® Weld Backing Tape™, specifically for supporting weld roots and to provide very even weld root profiles.

The Weld Backing Tape™ comprises a 75 mm wide aluminium adhesive tape that has a 25 mm wide fibre glass band in the centre onto which the weld can be cast.

Welding speeds can be dramatically increased with the help of Argweld® Weld Backing Tape™.  The resulting weld is neat, clean and requires minimal post weld attention.

Support Weld Roots and Save Costs


Using Argweld® Weld Backing Tape™ will significantly reduce linear and circumferential seam welding costs.

Argweld® Weld Backing Tape™ allows faster welding speeds and greater production rates while producing smooth profile and flat, clean weld underbeads.

With Argweld® Weld Backing Tape™, it is now possible to make welds from one side only, where double sided welding used to be applied. This eliminates the need for expensive weld preparations and the need for back gouging.

Because weld roots are flat and clean when using Argweld® Weld Backing Tape™, post weld dressing and cleaning costs are dramatically reduced.

The cost of Argweld® Weld Backing Tape™ is paid for on each weld as well as making additional cost savings through increased welding speed and reduced weld cleaning.

Where large volumes are filled with expensive inert gas to prevent oxidised welds, the use of Argweld® Weld Backing Tape™ allows welders to complete the work quickly without the cost of inert gas and lengthy waiting times for purging.

Argweld® Weld Backing Tape™ and Argweld Weld Purge Tape™ are available for immediate delivery.
