Erico Cadweld Plus for exothermally welded connections
By Anthony Capkun
The Cadweld Plus system is a method of performing exothermically welded electrical connections. It features an integrated welding material package to streamline the installation process and eliminate ignition materials. The tamper-proof package consists of a steel cup containing Cadweld welding material alloys and an ignition source. (The new welding material package is designed for use in all standard Cadweld moulds.) Once placed in mould, the welding material is electronically ignited using a battery-powered control unit with a 6-ft. lead. It joins copper to copper, copper to galvanized or plain steel, copper to copper-clad steel, copper to bronze/brass/stainless steel, steel to steel, and many other combinations.
