Earthmet are an appointed authorised seller and distributor for ERICO CADWELD PLUS exothermic welding products.
Cadweld Plus benefits
The ERICO CADWELD PLUS system provides the weld metals in a sealed metallic cup with no need for starting powder or a metal disk. The system is easier and quicker to use and is ignited with a remote control unit at a distance, enabling the operator to be further away from the ignition process which gives the system a unique safety feature.
The traditional system uses a flint gun and starting material to make the joint and both systems use the same semi-permanent graphite mould, handle clamps, PPE and cleaning accessories.
Earthmet provide full onsite or office training, along with certification.
Cadweld plus was developed as a simplified method of performing exothermically welded electrical connections. This trusted system now features a new cup design for the integrated welding material package which has streamlined the installation process by eliminating ignition materials.
The tamper proof, integrated welding material package consists of a steel cup containing welding material alloys and an ignition source. Once placed in the mould, the welding material is electronically ignited using a simple battery- powered control unit with a six foot lead.
