Welding Supply Stores (WSS) admittedly make money on two things; gas and brass. Many are excited at the prospect to deliver value to a strategic customer and so introduce BorNiGuard ceramic anti-spatter. However, once they realize significantly reduced sales of tips, nozzles, diffusers, etc they stop promoting it. Of course, they will transact an order for BorNiGuard when asked for it, but not actively promote it.
You might be lucky to have that WSS rep who sees the bigger picture and wants to earn your next gas contract. When your rep promotes BorNiGuard you know he /she is looking out for your bottom line.
One such user reports: "We at MMS in manufacturing welded assemblies have reduced downtime by 20%, extended life of tip/nozzle to 4 to 6 hours and reduced consumable purchases by 25% using BorNiGuard anti spatter spray.
‘Great product that is now used across the plant in welding applications..” Kevin M—Gen Mgr
