CADWELD® Welded Electrical Connection

Connections are often the weak point in ground circuits, especially if they are subjected to high currents and corrosion. The capacity of a grounding circuit to protect property and personnel depends on the quality of its connections. Only the CADWELD exothermic system can provide the permanent, low-resistance connection needed to create a long-lasting, reliable grounding network.
