TEXTURE & MOLD REPAIR

Introduction

Texture repair may not always require welding. There are times when we are able to move the damaged metal to avoid welding. The severity of the damage and how much existing metal is available will determine this option. There are different techniques that apply to each situation. We will consult with you and recommend options that are best suited to your needs. If welding is needed, we have the resources to assist.

Depending on your needs, we have 2 locations – Corona, CA (USA) and Tijuana, B.C. (Mexico) to take the repair to completion.

There are specific requirements to achieve the best possible results for weld and texture repair. They include but are not limited to the following:
    • 1. Preheating the mold prior to welding.
    • 2. Welding with the appropriate rod or material while the mold is still hot.
    • 3. Heating the mold after welding. Sometimes, a spot heat will suffice. Other times, heating the entire piece is needed.
