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.
The introduction of the tablet format in the Apliweld Secure+ system developed by Aplicaciones Tecnológicas implies innovation which has brought significant advantages for the implementation of exothermic welding in any earthing system.
Aplicaciones Tecnológicas adds new accessories to the Apliweld® Secure+ system. The new car charger for the electronic starting device and the mould accessory increase the range of products of the most efficient and secure welding system in the market.
