Using Thermoplastic Welding Rods

It is important to know where to buy plastic welding rods that ensure quality for your every project. But it is equally vital to know the basics in thermoplastic welding. These fundamentals will help you produce a rigid weld, even in using plastic rods.

Identifying Your Materials

You can only weld “like” materials; in this case, plastic to plastic. Use only Polypropylene welding rod on Polypropylene. The same goes for every kind of thermoplastic plastic rod material, from ABS to HDPE to Polyurethane.

Surface Preparation

Cleanliness is essential to any welding job. Clean materials and a clean surface affect how strong the plastic welding will be. To prepare a surface, follow these steps:

  • Remove oils, greases, paints, soil, and dust prior to welding
  • Use a soft sponge with warm water
  • Use a standard abrasive wheel when sanding paint

Application of Heat

There are two choices in cooling welds, plastic or otherwise: air cooling and water cooling. You must analyze the type of welding operation you will be performing and determine the kind of cooling system that fits best.

Buy plastic welding rods from Keene Village Plastics. We use only top quality materials and precision technology to deliver the highest caliber products for the 3D printing industry.

Cooling of the Weld

You can only weld “like” materials; in this case, plastic to plastic. Use only Polypropylene welding rod on Polypropylene. The same goes for every kind of thermoplastic plastic rod material, from ABS to HDPE to Polyurethane.
