In heavy metal fabrication welding conditions are never ideal. Weld joint fit-ups to provide optimum (root) weld conditions and often impossible for all practical purposes. DABOTEK DTG and DTB Weld Backing are manufactured in many shape and sizes for the conditions of heavy metal fabrication. These non-hygroscopic, neutral non-metallic weld backings, when properly positioned and attached to the back-side of weld joint openings produce a condition which results in root weld free of defects. Since rework associated with poor root weld is eliminated, additional joint prep, weld and cleanup time become superfluous. Unlike metal backing bars, DABOTEK non-metallic weld backing do not become part of finished weld.
One-side one pass, and one-side multipass welds are possible with DABOTEK weld backings. Our backings have been shown to evenly support molten weld metal over a wide range of welding heats resulting in a uniform back bead of finished quality.
For Years DABOTEK has been an innovator in the welding industry attending to the needs of heavy metal fabricators and now services a principal share of Danish an others shipbuilders in Europe.
