SafeBond® is a Patented Portable Indirect Arc Bonding Method with unique features:
The Bonding System that can attach cables anywhere on the rail, even on the base of the hardest Premium Rails, if so necessary.
Non-Rail-Melting© Feature: SafeBond® does not melt down the steel on the railway as for example thermite welding does.
The Patented SafeBond® system that is developed by Safetrack has already proven its superiority during more than a decade being the only cable application method in the world to be used on the hardest Premium rails used in the railway industry.
Since the use of harder and harder rail is increasing, the SafeBond® silver soldering method has been developed to meet the need for a safe and fast method to applicate electrical connections to the rails and create a Safe Bond.
Due to the fact that hardening effects are created when the temperature of the rail exceed 720°C/1328°F is the method based on that a special silver alloy(with a lower melting temperature), which is placed beneath the copper cable lug and melted by an electronically controlled energy amount powered by a 36 V DC battery unit.
SafeBond® can with great advantages also be used on pipelines (highest metallurgical requirements) for cathodic protection installations.
The new lightweight PinBrazing/SafeBond unit Econect™ is preset to operate both systems (different guns required).
Used for over a decade by the Union Pacific RailRoad.

SafeBond®'s Patented unique features:
- Low temperature. Even lower than the PinBrazing method and
MUCH lower temperature compared to thermite welding.
- Non-Pipe melting© Feature. SafeBond® does not melt down
the steel in the Pipeline as for example thermite welding does.
- No metallurgical impact on parent material. Safe for any steel structure.
- Fast Method. A SafeBond® brazing takes only a few seconds.
- Battery powered.
- Lightweight unit. Less than 10 kg. (Econect©)
- Safe for the operator.
