Buttering vs Buildup in welding

The buildupĀ is a surfacing variation in which surfacing material is deposited to achieve required dimensions. The term buildup denotes the addition of weld metal to a base metal surface, the edge of a joint, or previously deposited weld metal for the restoration of the component to the required dimensions. In this case, the strength of the weld metal is a necessary consideration in the component design. The Buttering is a surfacing variation used to deposit surfacing metal on one or more surfaces to provide compatible weld metal for the subsequent completion of the weld. Buttering differs from buildup in that … Continue reading Buttering vs Buildup in welding
