    Although different techniques produce different-looking welds, in general a good weld should have:
    • A smooth and uniform appearance
    • Good penetration
    • The correct profile (either flat, convex or concave, depending on the type of weld)
    • Little to no ‘spatter’
    • Some colouration of the parent metal either side of the weld
    • No surface pores
    • No colouration on the surface
    • No burns
    • Even and well-feathered ripples
