The KingsWeld exothermic mould is manufactured from high quality graphite. This lends itself to easy machining, as well as being able to withstand the high thermal and mechanical shocks produced during the exothermic welding process. Heat obtained in such reactions is in excess of 2000°C.
Our moulds are designed to have an average lifetime of 50 to 60 connections. But, if treated with care, it is possible to obtain a significantly longer life.
Graphite is both brittle and soft, therefore it is important that the operator takes care whilst handling the product.
Worn-out or damaged moulds should not be used.
Each mould has a nameplate, detailing the connection type, part code and the correct weld metal size to be used.
