Hot gas welding…

Hot gas welding is a fabrication process for thermoplastic materials. The process, invented in the mid 20 th century, uses a stream of heated gas, usually air, to heat and melt both the thermoplastic substrate material and the thermoplastic welding rod. The substrate and the rod fuse to produce a weld to ensure welding takes place, adequate temperature and pressure must be applied to the rod, along with the use of the correct welding speed and gun position. The weld quality, since this is a purely manual technique, is dependent on the skill of the welder.

Extrusion welding…

Extrusion welding is a technique used to join thermoplastics and composites. The process involves using a welding machine that heats and melts a plastic filler material while simultaneously heating the base material to be welded. The pressurized molten filler plastic is extruded from the machine on to the surface of the base material. The two molten plastics (the filler and the base material) are allowed to cool to form a permanent bond.
