How to plastic welding

2021/08/23


Plastic welding is the process of joining softened thermoplastics surfaces using heat. When compatible thermoplastics are subjected to heat, they create a molecular bond that subsequently leads to plastic formation. During production, you have to press the surfaces, subject them to heat and pressure, and then cool off.

The heating techniques used are responsible for the different types of plastics available. Other than the welding method chosen, there are more factors that dictate the quality of the plastics produced. For example, how weldable are the base materials? Before you embark on the welding procedure, take time to examine if the base materials are pliable enough to produce your desired end product.

Manufacturing plastics is inevitable since they are widely used globally, from simple to sophisticated ones. Examples of simple plastics are disposable cutlery, vinyl toys, and light storage tins. The sophisticated forms include medical equipment, internet cables, and construction pipes.
