What is Hot Gas Extrusion Welding?
Hot Gas Extrusion Welding is a form of thermoplastic welding utilizing hot air and filler material in combination pressure to create permanent bonds between plastics.
Hot Gas Extrusion Welding requires special equipment consisting of a welding shoe, extruding gun, hot gas air supply, and filler rod. When performing an extrusion weld, the tool heats the filler rod to a plasticized state and preheats the parent material so that when the two meet, a molecular bond is formed.
Extrusion and Hand Welding allow for the fabrication of large plastic parts and tanks. Trinetics Group has experience in extrusion welding many types of plastic including vast experience with welding PVC.
