Apliweld® exothermic welding in earthing system installations

Apliweld® makes permanent, reliable and high conductivity connections according to international standards.

Apliweld® exothermic or aluminothermic welding is a process that achieves the molecular binding among two or more metallic conductors by a chemical reaction.  This molecular binding improves mechanical, electrical and anti-corrosion properties compared with any mechanical connection. Apliweld® exothermic welding is the best way to make permanent, reliable and high conductivity connections for any installation requiring an earthing system.

IEC EN 60364-5-54 standard recommends electrical connections with exothermic /aluminothermic welding.

Furthermore, Apliweld® Secure+ provides:

  • Cost saving: the use of a single type of welding compound, valid for any connection, reduces the stock costs. Set-up times get also shorter.
  • Less labour risks: more work safety thanks to the remote electronic start-up (2 meters) and the lack of flammable material needed for ignition.
  • Moreover: enables the work with wind, high humidity and other common problems of fieldwork.
