nVent erico cadweld exothermic connections

Founded in 1903 as the Electric Railway Improvement Company, nVent ERICO originally specialized in arc-welded rail bonding for the railway and mining industries. While the connections were a significant advancement, the heavy equipment required to complete the welding was a drawback. In 1939, nVent ERICO completed the development of and patented the nVent ERICO Cadweld Exothermically Welded Connection. nVent ERICO Cadweld Exothermically Welded Connections are specified by engineers and consultants for many industries and installed by contractors and site owners large and small all over the world. With Over 100,000,000 field-proven connections installed around the globe by our very satisfied customers, the “nVent ERICO Cadweld” name has become synonymous with “Exothermic Welding” from the classroom to the job site. nVent ERICO Cadweld continues to maintain a reputation for electrically superior connections that will never loosen, break, or corrode in most environments.

nVent ERICO Cadweld exothermically welded connections are engineered to provide a permanent, molecular bond that will not loosen or corrode. The connections are designed to maintain for the life of the conductor and/or installation. The nVent ERICO Cadweld connection has a current carrying capacity equal to or greater than that of the conductor and will withstand repeated fault currents without failing during operation. Once completed, installers can clearly ensure quality assurance by visual inspection of the new connection. With reliable connections that consistently exceeded IEEE® 837 2014 EMF test requirements as certified by an independent lab, nVent ERICO Cadweld is the ultimate welded connection.

Originally developed in 1938, nVent ERICO Cadweld Welding Material meets the high quality standards you have come to expect from nVent ERICO. Welding material alloys and sizes are engineered to provide the ultimate welded connection for grounding, bonding, and power applications.
