ATTACHMENTS - Welding Tips - #5 Round Tip
Shipping Weight: 1.00 pounds
Plastic Welding is fun and easy. Welding plastics (Polyethylene, Polyproplyene, PVC, ABS) requires that you melt the plastics together. A flame is too hot and only burns the plastics. Our Seeley welding units have a heating element in the handle that heats the air to approx. 550 F which melts that plastics together without burning the materials. The weld in the plastic is often stronger than the original plastic itself. It is easy to repair a fender or gas tank on an ATV. Remember that you must use a welding rod that is the same type of material that you are welding.
This tip takes any size welding rod. With the welder in one hand and the welding rod in the other, use a fanning motion on the underneath side of the welding rod and the top of the base plastic. Remember to keep continuous pressure on the welding rod. (This tip is included in our SI-1005 Welder)
