Weld overlay is a process that provides protection for products such as pipelines, valves, flanges and specialist fabrications by welding a corrosion resistant protective layer to areas at risk of corrosion and wear that are destined for use in aggressive environments.

Arc Energy's weld overlay cladding services are utilised by clients in a vast number of industry sectors where service conditions require corrosion resistant properties. Weld overlay cladding provides the assurance of a heavy-duty metallurgically-bonded protective layer that will not be undermined or dislodged in service. Welding can be overlayed to an application externally (ie flange face) or weld inlay internally (ie through a pipe bore).

The companies weld overlay and weld inlay service offers a reliable and very high quality product.

The highly versatile weld overlay process provides the practical combination of readily available base materials, coated with a suitable long-lasting corrosion resistant alloy to protect any vulnerable area. This provides the benefit of cost savings, as well as a reduction in lead time.

A wide range of applications can benefit from anti-corrosion weld overlay and weld inlay, including pipelines, flanges, valves, vessels and specialist subsea equipment. An array of component shapes and sizes can be clad at Arc Energy Resources, with a huge range of base material/cladding alloy alternatives.

Arc Energy’s welding engineering team, led by European Welding Engineer and European Welding Coordinator of the Year 2012, Alan Robinson, will be able to aid the decision of which weld overlay combination is ideal to use. Typical welding alloy materials in common use at Arc Energy include Inconel 625, Inconel 825, monel, hastalloy and stainless steels amongst many others.

The ability of Arc Energy Resources to weld complex geometries has made weld overlay cladding one of the most adaptable and flexible anti-corrosion methods in common use.
