“The Drader,” as our loyal customers refer to it, is a hand-held plastic welding fabrication kit and repair system known worldwide for its ease of use and strong welds. Our clients get longer life out of their plastics, reduce waste and achieve cost savings for their business.
The Injectiweld has interchangeable tips and an automatic feed system that enables a person to use the welder with one hand. It uses radiant heat to thermally bond most types of plastics without the use of hot air or gas. The welding rod is automatically drawn into the gun by a set of rod driver wheels and fed into the connecting tube where it is nipped off, packed into the barrel, and melted.
Benefits of the Drader Injectiweld:
- The quality of the weld is very high even when users do not have a lot of experience.
- Interchangeable tips
- Scraping off surface oxidation is not necessary
- Stronger, more reliable welds than hot air sticks
- Long list of thermoplastics can be welded with Injectiweld
The Injectiweld is not compatible for welding all plastics, including:
- Thermoset plastics cannot be welded because they do not melt when heat is applied to them. Examples: F.R.P. (Fiberglass), Bakelite, Epoxies, Phenolics, Melamine, etc.
- PVC-U / PVC-P – PolyVinylChloride (Rigid / Flexible). The lowest temperature setting of the Injectiweld is too high for PVC-U or PVC-P. The material will burn inside the welders barrel. This will release chlorine gas, which is harmful to the operators health and will damage the aluminum parts of the welder.
- PMMA – PolyMethyl MethAcrylate. Using this material inside the Injectiweld may cause the piston rod to become stuck. When PMMA is sheared, it exhibits very sharp edges around the circumference of the breakage. These sharp edges may prohibit the piston rod from moving backwards.
- PFA – PerFluoro Alkoxy. The weld temperature for this material exceeds the maximum temperature setting.
