Welding supplies properties and uses.
Welding is the process of joining metal together by heating them to the point of melting where you want them to join.
There are several different methods of welding and we sell all the equipment and consumables you need.
MIG Welding, also known as ‘gas metal arc welding’ is the preferred method for fusing aluminium, mild steel and stainless steel. This Welding method is one of the most easily mastered for workshop and home use applications. We stock a full range of MIG welding machines, including a gasless and a synergic model, welding wire, gas control valves and torches.
Stick Welding or Arc Welding, is the most basic and easy to master. Stick welding uses electrodes covered with flux to lay the weld and is commonly used in manufacture, construction and repair work. It is most suitable for use on heavy metals of over 4mm thick, thinner alloys and sheet metals are better welded by the MIG welding method. We stock a full range of accessories and consumables and a wide range of welding machines.
Tungsten Inert Gas or ‘TIG’ Welding is possibly the hardest technique to master and is used when a high-quality finish is required without the need for excessive post welding sanding or grinding. We carry a full range of TIG welders, tungsten, TIG rods, pickling paste and consumables to enable you to complete your project to the highest standard.
We also stock cutting torches and plasma cutting machines to enable you to obtain professional cutting results with mild & low-allow steels, aluminium, copper, nickel alloys, titanium and stainless steel at home and in the workshop.
