Applications

FiBack Tape can be used with carbon steel (left photo) or stainless steel (right photo), for sheet to sheet or pipe to pipe welding. The ¼” gap between the sheet metal has been welded with .045” flux core. Notice that the fiberglass has not burned away and there is no appearance of oxidation.
FiBack Tape consists of two outer adhesive strips separated by a woven fiberglass centre strip. The adhesive edges stick to the area surrounding the root gap with the woven fiberglass strip being positioned to the backside of the root gap.
