In site repair of wheel burn and cupped thermit welds is now a practical proposition using the powder deposition process. The powder welding process requires a brightly ground or scurfed surface and the usual precautions obligatory with any welding procedure, that of removing fatigued metal, flow ridges and lapping. Should the weld fail, the failure will occur at the weld/base metal interface and experience has shown that a few microns of weld metal still remain, and consequently protection is afforded against atmospheric oxidation.
