Exothermic welding or aluminothermic welding is a chemical process that creates a permanent molecular union of two or more conductors. This fusion results in a more reliable and durable connection, as well as providing equal or greater conductivity than mechanical bonding.
APLIWELD® Selector is a tool, aimed at all professionals who need to perform exothermic welding, designed to facilitate the specification and preparation of the material in any project with aluminothermic welding. Thanks to the APLIWELD® Selector software, the user obtains product references and quantities of each material for all the connections required in a project, quickly and efficiently.
Exothermic welding, also known as aluminothermic welding, is a chemical process which creates a permanent molecular bonding of two or more conductors. As a result of this fusion, the connection is more reliable and durable than the mechanical union, and its conductivity is equal to or greater than the metals it connects.
Both exothermic welding and brazing are different methods of bonding one or more pieces of metallic conductors used in earthing systems. There are different types of welding and different forms to classify them. One of these forms is to distinguish if the pieces to be welded are actually melted or not when adding the compound material.

Hospitals, retirement homes, research centers, laboratories, etc., are key infrastructures that must be protected against the risks caused by electrical storms. Buildings in which there is a high concentration of people, high-cost equipment and even patients connected to electrical systems that cannot suffer cuts or alterations in the electricity supply, require a comprehensive lightning protection system with the maximum guarantees of safety and quality.
