Robvon Backing Rings

Robvon Commercial Backing Rings are designed for quick, easy alignment of pipe, tube, fittings and valves and assure precise, close tolerance fit-up. They allow complete penetration and fusion of the weld and radiograph perfect certified welds.

The patented nubs automatically set the weld gap for the root-pass. The internal bevels and flat inner lands assure non-restricted fluid flow. The Robvon backing ring eliminates the necessity of tack welding and it also eliminates slag, icicles or metal inside the bore which create obstructions, which and can cause damage to valve seats and strainers when broken loose.
