New nitrogen plastic welding system from Power-TEC

Plastic welding with nitrogen gas creates the strongest welds possible because it eliminates oxidisation of the plastic during the welding process. The new nitrogen plastic welding system from Power-TEC (part number 92452) includes everything needed to become immediately productive making strong and very quick plastic repairs on virtually any type of plastic.

And there is no concern of ever running out of nitrogen, as the Power-TEC 92452 features an inbuilt nitrogen generator that eliminates the need for a nitrogen gas bottle. Workshop Compressed air is used to maintain consistent temperature between welds — the nitrogen is only activated when pulling the trigger so that it’s not wasted between welds.
Identify the plastic material, choose the compatible plastic filler and the compact, easy-to-handle welding torch gets right into tight spots, making stronger welds than with any other method. The kit includes an integral hot stapler that is used to stabilise and secure the area during the repair process, plus both a brass roller and a metal scraper that are used to smooth off and reduce any excess material. The result is a strong, plastic-only repair that can then be finished and repainted.
Particularly useful for repairing mounting tabs and flanges, which can be difficult to repair successfully using other methods, plus with nitrogen welding there is no material build-up. The repaired tab is as strong and flexible as it was before the damage. If welding from behind, the nitrogen welding process keeps the heat localised, with no damage to the painted outer surface.
Versatile, quick, cost-saving and easy —  the nitrogen-generating plastic welder from Power-TEC.
