Plastic Welding and Fabrication - Welded Polypropylene Tank


Plastic Welding Overview
What is plastic welding?

Plastic welding is a process that uses a plastic welding tool to join two pieces of plastic together. Utilizing hot air tools like hot air heat guns, our welding specialists feed a small diameter welding rod into the heat gun, then heat it to a working temperature. Once malleable, the rod is placed between the pieces of plastic and pressure is applied to seamlessly weld the pieces together. Interstate Advanced Materials offers welding services for plastics such as polyethylene (PE), PVC, acrylic, and polypropoylene (PP), along with metals like stainless steel and aluminum.


Customers Also Asked:
Can you weld plastic to plastic?

Yes, we can weld many thermoplastics together, including but not limited to polypropylene, HDPE, LDPE, and PVC. Interstate Advanced Materials welders have the skill to weld many thermoplastics.

What chemical welds plastic?

Some plastics, like acrylic, are not technically welded, but are bonded using solvent-based glues in order to create a strong weld joint.

What plastics cannot be welded?

Thermoset plastics like polyurethane, ACM, CIP, and phenolics cannot be welded.

What is the easiest plastic to weld?

Polypropylene and polyethylene are among the easiest plastics to weld.
