Test welds are an important part of welding thermoplastics whether they’re used for roofing, tarps, pools, tunnels, landfills, or tailings ponds. Welds should be tested first thing in the morning and several times throughout the day to ensure that environmental changes are not compromising the strength of your welds.
How to Test
Testing a weld is simple.
What to Look For
Why Testing is Important
It is recommended that test welds be done multiple times throughout the day. Changes in the environment such as air temperature, cloud cover, and material temperature all affect weld parameters. Testing welds multiple times ensures that your seams are completely sealed and there will be no leaking in the future.
