ATTACHMENTS - Welding Tips - #4 Tacking 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.
No welding rod is required with this tip. This tip is used to tack a seam together. This is strictly a pre-welding tip. Drag the tip along a seam to hold in place until a permanent weld is completed.
