Certificate of Registration - all rights reserved Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT®

Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT® was established in 1975 and is now in its 45th year of existence at the time of writing.

ALL Copyright and Intellectual Property Rights are the sole property of Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT® for Argweld Weld Trailing Shields® since 1975.  

Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT® coined the phrase and developed the name Weld Trailing Shields. We own full Copyright © protection and ownership, including and not limited to, the phrase of terms related to it and as such is registered with the Intellectual Property Office.

Along with all of our other Registered Trademarks, Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT® created the name “Weld Trailing Shields” for its products that directly attach to welding torches to prevent air from coming into contact with the molten weld pool until after it has solidified.  An example of our renewal notice is shown below at the Certificate of Registration dated 2013.

Accordingly HFT holds Registration Certificates from the UK, EU and USA authorities for the terms 'Argweld®' and 'Argweld Weld Trailing Shields®' and ALL Copyright © belongs to Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT®.

In the event that any company provides you with, or attempts to provide you with a product for attaching to a welding torch to protect a molten weld pool from being exposed to air to prevent oxidation and discolouration, please check that it carries the HFT® authentic original branding on the product as well as the packaging.

If the product has not been supplied by HFT directly or one of our ‘Authorised Distributors’, as found on our website, please report such an incident to us, so that we may take the appropriate legal action.
