Walter Surface Technologies' new E-Weld reduces slag build up on laser and plasma tablesClick image to enlarge

Walter Surface Technologies' E-Weld Plasma is a new ceramic, waterbased anti-spatter solution applied to laser and plasma cutting tables to reduce slag buildup.

E-Weld Plasma offers a simple, yet efficient means of providing long-lasting protection, even under extreme heat, by inhibiting the adherence of slag.

It's applied to plasma and laser cutting tables with an ergonomic arm-mounted applicator. Users can quickly and easily coat areas as large as 500 square feet. Walter Surface Technologies says this is a "a first-to-market product" that is applied by painting or spraying.

“E-Weld Plasma is a unique solution that decreases equipment maintenance time and eliminates the health and safety hazards associated with current cleaning processes for laser and plasma cutting tables”, explains Jonathan Douville, product manager, Surfox, E-Weld and Finishing Solutions at Walter Surface Technologies. He adds that "it profices great surface protection, which increases teh service life of work tables and makes cleaning operations much faster and safer."

It is a label-free product that is applied in minutes and dries quickly. It reduces cleaning time from days to a few hours, depending on size of the work tables. As an added benefit, the product can also be applied to surrounding equipment that is exposed to weld spatter or slag.
