Exothermic Welding Team
Exothermic welding is a process that uses the energy produced by an arc between an argon gas and an electrode to create heat. There are several advantages to using this type of welding for welding. First, it is a chemical process that does not require flash heating and, therefore, produces little residual heat when welding. It also creates very little carbon buildup.
Exothermic welding is used to join metals which are at room temperature together, with or without some type of additive. This process is sometimes known as cold-gas welding because the inert gases used in this process are usually cold, such as argon, xenon, or nitrogen. The two most common types of materials used in this process are stainless steel and titanium. Some combination of these two different metals are also used to create new alloys. The most common types of alloys created in this manner are chrome, copper, brass, bronze, nickel, palladium, rhodium, and zinc.
There are many benefits to using an exothermic welding team. In addition to the fact that it is faster than traditional welding, the end product is also stronger. In some cases, the strength can be increased by several percent over regular welding. Welders often use an exothermic arc to weld aluminum and stainless steel, because the material cannot be put under any type of heat while the arc is on the surface, which allows the weld to be completed quickly and continuously. This process is very useful for making ships out of iron and steel. It has also been used to weld acrylic, copper, brass, titanium, and many other materials.
