New CPVC welding rod generation
Ever since 2012, SIMONA AG, has worked with raw material and compound manufacturer Lubrizol Advanced Materials Europe BVBA (Brussels, Belgium) and plastics producer Georg Fischer DEKA GmbH, on the development, quality standards, field testing and market launch of a new welding rod generation. The end result is a joint, clearly defined product.
Trouble-free processing in accordance with DVS 2207-3
A ring test carried out in 2014/15 with 14 European processing partners to test its weldability – evaluated by an independent, accredited test institute – established the trouble-free processing properties of this new-generation system in accordance with DVS 2207-3 guidelines.
Benefits at a glance
- Harmonious system properties in terms of corrosion resistance
- Compatibility with semi-finished sheet and pipe products
- Performance capability of existing wire rod qualities matched or exceeded (e.g. in terms of moisture-chlorination, anolyte)
- Clear product specifications; colour parity with recommended sheets and pipes enable clear system specifications on the customer side.
The new CPVC welding rod is available in d 3 mm and 4 mm.
