The Powercore plastic welding rod can be used for welding most thermoplastic
materials. The Powercore plastic welding rod can be used for:
- Welding polyethylene
- Welding polypropylene
- Welding HDPE
- Welding PVDF
Thermoplastic Piping Applications
Powercore is used in all types of thermoplastic piping situations.
Powercore can be used for Butt Fusion joints, fabrication of fusion
collars, and the application of various types of fittings .
Vacuum molded and injection molded parts can be fused onto, or into,
a variety of configurations. In the case of vacuum forming, the Powercore
Welding Rod can be placed on the mold prior to forming. After the
forming process, the Powercore Welding Rod will be pre-attached to
the part in the optimum welding position. Injection molded parts
can be made with a molded groove that the Powercore Welding Rod can
Roto-molders have used Powercore to fabricate multiple sized tanks
with only two molds. By molding an end panel, and a body section, multiple
sized tanks can be fused together with Powercore by adding body sections
between end panels.
Thin Sheet Applications
This example shows Powercore pre-attached to a thin plastic sheet,
which is then used to create a protective wrap around Warf Piles.
Cost Saving Applications
When large objects such as storage tanks need to be shipped great distances,
the shipping cost can exceed the cost of the tank. By Rotomolding
or Vacuum molding two half tanks that can be stacked inside another,
many tanks can be shipped in the same amount of space it takes to
ship one. The tank can be easily welded together once it reaches
its final destination.
