Speed Tip Welding

This process involves a tool similar to an electric soldering iron in appearance and power output. However, it is fitted with a feed tube for the plastic weld rod. The tip of the iron heats the plastic rod and the substrate, while at the same time it presses the molten weld rod into position. A strip of softened plastic is laid into the joint fusing the plastic weld and the two parts together. When using polypropylene, the melted welding rod must be mixed with the semi-melted base material that is being repaired. Not all vehicle manufacturers use the same type of plastic. We have access to information so we know which base plastics are used, thus getting the correct plastic for welding. Speed tip welding is fast & effective technique and can be used in tight corners.
