Our page on Welding-Cast-Iron presents an introduction to the subject.

Our recent page on Casting-Repair introduces an overview including also other cast metals.

It is limited in scope to general issues.

While stressing important aspects it cannot delve into details.

The present List of Links may provide useful references to those looking for specific answers to their particular questions.

It has been calculated that the huge economic impact of Casting Repair saves to industry important assets that should otherwise be scrapped.

Successful Weld Repair of Castings must be able to restore defective items to complete and unconditional usability.

To demonstrate achievement of its purpose, repaired items must stand the strictest quality assurance requirements.

This Bulletin_105 intends to supply a useful Reference List to add further information to that available in this website.

This Bulletin_105 could be kept handy for reference when required, to get Resources that may be needed.
