Protect your weld with the new design weld trailing shield

25 June 2020

Protecting titanium and stainless steel welds from coming into contact with air whilst they cool prevents oxidation, weld defects and rework.

Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT has launched its re-designed Weld Trailing Shields, which provide an additional inert gas coverage during welding, preventing the hot metal from coming into contact with air while it cools.

CEO Managing Director, Georgia Gascoyne said, “Along with the new sleek design, our Trailing Shields have a NEW Unique clip design, which means the welder can interchange different trailing shield sizes without having to change the welding torch.”

“With our name and logo stamped onto every new Trailing Shield, you can be sure the Shield you are using is a HFT design. We manufacture our Weld Trailing Shields right here in the UK so we can guarantee quality and 100% craftsmanship.”

The low cost, lightweight Argweld Trailing Shields will fit any make of TIG, MIG or Plasma (GTAW, GMAW, PAW) welding torch for welding flat sheet or plate and the OD or ID of tubes or pipes. For pipes and vessels, the radiused versions are manufactured to suit diameters from 25mm and upwards.

Using an Argweld Trailing Shield will leave welds bright and shiny and eliminate discolouration and oxidation. The silicone (side skirt) gasket is resistant to temperatures up to 230ºC.

Titanium and stainless steels are chosen for their corrosion-resistant properties in particular and if they are then allowed to oxidise during the weld cycle, expensive post welding cleaning techniques become necessary. Using a Trailing Shield guarantees an oxide free, zero colour, bright shiny weld, time and time again.
