UHST - Universal Hermetic Soldering Tool
The UHST can help you repair a lot of materials in nearly any set of conditions.
My Story -
Several years ago, while I was on the trip to New York my radiator was damaged and I was stranded in the middle of nowhere. I couldn’t drive without getting the radiator repaired, but there was no one around to help me. This problem can happen to anyone and without electricity or welding equipment prompt repairs would be impossible. No one likes the idea of being stranded in a strange place with no help available. After my experience in New York I called a friend of mine (who has PhD in Chemistry) and we began thinking about a solution to problems similar to the one I encountered in my trip.
The Universal Hermetic Soldering Tool – UHST is made using advanced technology. The purpose of this tool is to allow its user to make mobile repairs in nearly any set of conditions on materials such as: cast iron, steel, iron, aluminum and duralumin, copper, bronze, brass, slate, plastic, a stainless steel, porcelain, ceramics and even wood. UHST is able to repair cracks, holes, broken vacuum seals and damaged galvanized or rust/corrosion proof metals in short period of time (5 minutes).
How does it work?
The UHST is composed of aluminum filings and provides adhesion even on rusted or oily surface. It can be easily used in horizontal or vertical position since special flux has been added to the structure. After the application process is complete the patched area can withstand heating temperature up to 350F and up to 5 atmospheres pressure without losing its hermetic ability.
We need your help to turn what was started as a garage project to an affordable, easy to use repair tool for everyone! We want to purchase professional equipment for production (Industrial Machine for Metal Melting Duolin SSF-M-70), make several improvements to our molds, including buying a faster cooling system. We have spoken to vendors to negotiate the best prices. In order to be able to offer UHST on a larger scale and make it the most affordable for everyone, we need to be able to make a full production run, which will take materials and labor resources.
Risks and challenges
Every project has possible obstacles and roadblocks and we are no exception. The good news is that we already have a fully tested and functional prototype of solder-hermetic tool and should be able to scale full production run (after making improvements) without too many issues. Possible delays could arise if we have difficulty to buy industrial equipment for big scale production, including the material for new molds and new cooling system. We are talking with a couple possible suppliers that should be able to meet our production process needs.
Supporters will be kept up to date with updates on the production process and shipment.
