    Default Perhaps "coalescence"??

    coalescence is created by the heat in resistance welding and sometimes referred to as "coalescence welding". Perhaps your friend may have heard something that sounded like "flowneous" but was actually coalescence?
    I have never heard of "Flowneous". But that doesn't mean I'm right. Just a thought?

    Dave, I never heard of it either and Im not near the expert that some of these guys are.

    I did a search though and found a web site with the AWS welding chart. There is nothing mentioned about it on there. Maybe he could give you more info on it as to what it is used for or how it is done.

    Here is the web site.

    Default ever heard of this

    i'm not sure if this guy was straight up with info or not so i thought i would drop a line to you guys and see what comes up so i'm really not sure if he even knows what he talking about either but i'll ask him more info when we get back to work tomorrow but when he talks about it he sounds like he knows all the correct terms and tech stuff, but so do some other people that think they know all there is about welding and come to find out don't know JACK CRAP!! so this is why i'm asking you guys and i'll keep looking for some answers myself

    Talking

    When you put (sp) behind a word it means you'r not 100% sure that you spelt it right. I looked through 2 charts of mine that list about 90% of all well known welding proccesses and didn't find a thing. Is it possible that he's talking about cast welding where you pour molten metal into a void between 2 solid peices of metal causing it all to melt together? This method is used all the time in the railroad industry to fix broken rails and large cast wheel trucks using thermite.
