WELDING DRAPES & BLANKETS 

 

What is a Welding Blanket?

A Welding Blanket is designed to encapsulate a metal object that has been subjected to heat treatment either through stress relieving or welding. The blanket retards the cooling rates contributing towards the non-hardening and possible subsequent embrittlement in the Heat Effected Zone (HEZ).

 

What is a Welding Drape?

A Welding Drape is designed to be placed over or cover an object that cannot be moved and is positioned in such a way that welding spatter and dross could cause damage. The positioning of the drape is of utmost importance. It should be arranged loosely over the object to enhance the runoff of welding spatter and dross. A welding drape can also be used as a curtain or screen where a more robust material is required.

Are the Welding blankets carcinogenic?

What is spatter and dross?
