Plastic Welding Technical Tip – Weld them while they are hot

Molded parts welded hot off the press will weld differently than if they are allowed to cool. Since these parts are not fully cured, their size and shape can change significantly in the first few minutes out of the molding machine. Freshly molded parts may also retain quite a bit of heat, which can be… Continue Reading Plastic Welding Technical Tip – Weld them while they are hot
