Katbak ceramic weld backing is available from Gullco. The ceramic weld backing produces x-ray quality back beads on root pass, while welding from one side only. More metal is deposited while defects and rework are dramatically reduced, eliminating costly gouging and grinding.
Ceramic tiles are available in a variety of sizes and configurations, and are mounted on wide heat receptive, pressure sensitive adhesive foil for easy, accurate application to the work piece.
Katbak can be used on flat or curved surfaces, and is utilised throughout the world to reduce cost and improve weld quality in a broad range of industries including shipbuilding, tank welding and pipe welding. All Gullco Katbak is conveniently packaged and sealed in plastic for moisture-proof protection.
