Product Overview

The Triac ST is the 7th generation hot air manual welding tool from Leister. It is a multi-purpose piece of equipment that takes up little space but has a mountain of uses. It can weld a variety of materials, such as:

  • Thermoplastics
  • Thermoplastic elastomer and bitumen plates
  • Pipes
  • Profiles
  • Sealing layers
  • Coated fabrics
  • Foils
  • Foams
  • Tiles and layers

Operators can also adjust the heat to other temperatures to dry surfaces, heat thermoplastics just enough to form, couple, or bend them, shrink components, solder tubing, and connectors, defrost, melt adhesives, and ignite items.

The Triac ST is useful for countless applications and is an invaluable item to have on hand.

A Must-Have Item

The Triac ST raises the bar for plastic welding standards. It is the successor of the Leister Triac S that offers improvements to the previous model. Weighing just 2.18lbs, it is highly portable, easy to handle, and a snap to store in its carrying case.

The Triac ST is the most popular of Leister’s welders for its many benefits, which include:

  • Affordability & Versatility
  • Excellent Handling
  • Low Maintenance
  • Ability to Convert to an Automatic Welder

Affordability & Versatility

The Triac ST easily fits into a contractor’s budget, costing far less than an automatic welder. It also offers an incredible value for its price since it can perform countless functions that are useful in construction. Not only can it weld many materials, but it can also ignite, melt, solder, shrink, bend, and mold a variety of materials.

It’s compatible with more than 80 nozzles and accessories that open it up to even more applications and possibilities. Also, nozzles used with the previous Triac models are compatible with the ST, saving contractors even more money on parts.

Excellent Handling

This handheld tool is the very definition of agile welding. Since it weighs a little over two pounds and is equipped with a two-component handle, it handles smoothly as you weld in tight quarters and on dynamic surfaces. Contractors experience little to no fatigue using such a light tool with ergonomic grips. This along with its optimal center of gravity also contributes to higher precision, and less downtime.

Low Maintenance

This tool may be small, but it is packed with intelligent features that make your life simpler. It has heating element protection and an automatic carbon stop. The air filters are also easy to clean. The Triac also has a sturdy motor and turbine design which is built to last. These features work together to make this tool quick to troubleshoot and easy to maintain during its lifetime.

Can Convert to an Automatic Welder

While the Triac ST is an excellent manual welder, there are times when you need to weld more quickly than at a handheld speed. When the job goes beyond the small scale, affordable add-ons like the MINIFLOOR drive unit can turn this tool into an automatic welder. This attachment on wheels produces automatic welding results. Simply attach the Triac ST to the MINIFLOOR to weld longer lengths with great accuracy.

The Leister MINIFLOOR weighs only 12 pounds, which makes it easy to transport. It is also the only automatic welder that can connect with a hot-air hand tool in seconds. It also reduces the amount of time required to complete a product by almost half. This kind of accessory addition is unique to the Leister product line and it was created with the busy contractor on top of mind.

When you don’t need a full-scale automatic welder but need to get through small projects and short joints, this is an excellent option for an upgrade. By including Leister products like this in your spray foam rig, you can maximize your abilities and save time.
