nVent ERICO Cadweld Cathodic Connections are the preferred method of exothermically welding cathodic protection anode leads to pipes (steel or cast iron), tanks, and other structures. Cathodic protection systems are designed to prevent galvanic corrosion along a pipeline or in various structures. nVent ERICO Cadweld Cathodic Connections use a special welding material alloy to minimize heat effect on the steel, which is especially important on thin wall and high stress pipes.
Forms a permanent, low resistance connection
Provides a molecular bond
nVent ERICO Cadweld Exothermic Connections are rated with the same current capacity as the conductor
Portable installation equipment with no external source of power required
Installers can be easily trained to make nVent ERICO Cadweld Exothermic Connections
Connections can be visually inspected

For applications such as computer room, tunnel or other low-ventilation areas, specify a smokeless nVent ERICO Cadweld Exolon mold. Add an XL prefix to the standard mold part number when ordering (for example, a TAC2Q2Q becomes XLTAC2Q2Q). Similarly, nVent ERICO Cadweld Exolon welding material is also designated by the XL prefix (for example, 150 becomes XL150).
A gap between conductors may be required. See mold tag for more information.
Use XF19 or PLUSXF19 welding material on connections to ductile iron.
