The Drader Injectiweld is a plastic welding apparatus that thermally bonds plastic together with a strong weld. Drader classifies its welder as an Injection welder because it injects a shot of molten welding rod into the plastic parent material.
The quality of the weld is very high even when people do not have a lot of experience. The result approaches
100% weld strength without the use of hot air or gas.
ToolTex is a distributor for the Drader plastic welding system, and carries a wide selection of welding rod and parts. The Injectiweld is a one-hand operated injection plastic weld, and is used for plastic welding repair, plastic fabrication, plastic prototyping, and plastic model making, and is great for repairing plastic containers such as garbage bins and plastic totes. The Injectiweld has an automatic feed system that enables a person to use the welder with one hand. Welding rod is automatically drawn into the gun by a set of rod driver wheels. The rod is fed into the connecting tube where it is nipped off, packed into the barrel, and melted. Allowing the user a free hand to hold the parent material gives Drader an advantage over other welders.

Not all plastics can be welded with the Drader system. Below is a list of materials that will not weld with the system:
-PVC-U / PVC-P – PolyVinylChloride (Rigid / Flexible) - The lowest temperature setting of the Injectiweld is too high for PVC-U or PVC-P. The material will burn inside the welder’s barrel. This will release chlorine gas, which is harmful to the operator’s health and will damage the aluminum parts of the welder.
-PMMA – PolyMethyl MethAcrylate - Using this material inside the Injectiweld may cause the Piston Rod to become stuck. When PMMA is sheared, it exhibits very sharp edges around the circumference of the breakage. These sharp edges may prohibit the Piston Rod from moving backwards.
-PFA – PerFluoro Alkoxy - The weld temperature for this material exceeds the maximum temperature setting.
