ERICO CADWELD Exothermic Welding
The CADWELD process is a chemical reaction of granular materials which produces molten metal. It is also known as exothermic welding or thermite welding. Its excellent current-carrying capacity and ease of use makes it ideal for all electrical connections and is superior to mechanical connections.
Over the years, ERICO has developed numerous weld metal alloys for connections to various materials and surfaces which makes it a very versatile solution. Continued research and development make ERICO the worldwide leader in exothermic welding technology. We offer various type CADWELD Weldmetal such as:
- PB65PlusF80 (special CADWELD for rail)
- CADWELD Plus Control Unit
- And many more
West Australian Power Protection (WAPP) offers complimentary CADWELD training to all our existing customers.
