Dissolvo Water Soluble Purge Dams

Dissolvo® water soluble purge dams are an eco-friendly and economical purge dam solution for Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG or GTAW) welding of steel, steel alloy or aluminum pipes. Made of materials that fully dissolve in water, Dissolvo® purge dams can be easily flushed away once a weld is completed - leaving behind no adhesive residue. Dissolvo® purge dam materials are strong enough to dam argon or helium and still maintain an oxygen free purge.
  • Best, most economical purge dam material.
  • Completely dissolves in water or steam.
  • Simple and easy to use - right out of the box.
  • Saves time and money.
  • Effortless removal reduces labor expenses.
  • Non-toxic, biodegradable, and eco-friendly.
 
How to Use:

Simply trace, cut, apply, and combine your pipes. Punch a pinhole in each dam through the purging material to allow oxygen to escape. When the weld is complete, flush the line with water or steam. Dissolvo® disappears, leaving no residue.
