Water Soluble Adhesive

The Water Soluble Adhesive is utilized in conjunction with the Water Soluble Purge Film, model AA97209, which can be used as a purge gas barrier during TIG welding. The Water Soluble Adhesive is applied to inside of pipe. The welder thoroughly coats the entire circumference of the pipe surface where film is to be placed. He then presses glossy surface of the Water Soluble Purge Film against tacky … [Read more...]

Industrial Cleaning Wipes

Machine and fabrication shops have a tendency to be dirty, dusty and greasy places. Shops are where the work gets done. Welders and pipe-fitters know better than anyone though, that cleanliness is of paramount importance to all welds. As all welders know, weld contamination is a serious concern. Cleaning the pipe before the weld is made is nearly as important as the weld itself. In short, pure … [Read more...]

Aluminum Welding Tape

The Aluminum Welding Tape, also known as Purge Gas Retaining Tape, is used to seal the root gap between pipes to trap Argon gas, but in a most innovative way. The welding tape is composed of two aluminum adhesive areas on the outside edges, with an adhesive-free center "zone". The unique design of the aluminum welding tape allows the edges to stick to the area surrounding the root gap on stainless … [Read more...]

Water Soluble Paper and Purge Paper Tape

Wouldn't it be great to find a cost and time saving alternative to traditional purging systems? Conventional purge dams such as inflatable rubber bladders, rubber gaskets, or cardboard discs must be placed far from the weld zone. Remote placement of the purge dams may require large amounts of inert gas to be introduced to fully purify the weld zone, making the use of the conventional purge dams … [Read more...]

Water Soluble Purge Dams

Our pre-formed, self-adhesive Water Soluble Purge Dams enable welders to save time on weld preparation as well as improve project timeliness. Since Water Soluble Purge Dams are pre-formed, there is no need to measure, cut or construct a purge dam. There is no need to buy separate inventories of paper and tape or carry heavy rolls and tools to the job site. The welder simply peels, inserts and … [Read more...]
