High Speed Plastic Welding

High-Speed Welding

Either the rod or strip is fed through a special high-speed welding tip containing a feeding channel, making it unnecessary for the welder to hold the rod or strip in hand while welding. A person performing high-speed welding, moving the welder at the proper speed, can join 2 feet of Polyvinyl chloride, polyethylene, or polypropylene in a minute. Seams, joints, or repair areas can be as strong as or stronger than the original or base material welded (90% or better, depending on the type of weld applied).

When performing high-speed welding, remove the welding rod from the feeder tube immediately when the weld is complete. Always clean the rod feeder tube with a feeder tube brush before and after the completion of the weld.
