This article proves the advantage of gauze compared to the wire, tape, and powder materials as a filler material for electro contact welding. The gauze as a tape material consisting of wires has the advantages of wire (high adhesive strength and high fatigue life) and the tape advantages (high producibility, ease of use). The paper presents the coating study methods and results using gauze welding and the effect of this coating on the adhesive strength depending on electro contact welding modes, material and gauze parameters, residual stresses in coatings, and coating wear-resistance. During electro contact welding in rational modes, the woven gauze adhesive strength is 41% higher than the steel tape. When analyzing residual stress as a relation of the effective stress to the material yield strength of the sample or coating, it was found that residual stresses have a  smaller effect in the woven gauze coating compared to the tape made of steel 45. A stainless steel woven gauze coating and a steel tape coating made from steel 45 are equal in wear resistance.  Thus, a metal gauze can be used as filler material during electro contact welding on the surface of worn parts instead of steel tape made from a similar grade of steel applied to the worn parts' surface.
