    Default Exothermic Welding

    Looking for any information regarding exothermic welding, specifically causing fires. Also known as "Cadwelding" and "Thermite Welding".

    I did some(cadwelding) for the railroad on a small scale.(used to bond 6 ga wire to the rail.) The welders would use the larger set to weld track together. What kind of info are you looking for?

    I am looking for any historical data on fires that have been attributed to the use of exothermic welding.
