Introducing Aquasol SoluShim Water Soluble Alignment Sticks, the revolutionary solution for maintaining precise gaps on plates, pipes, and flanges as required by AWS codes D1.1 – D1.6, and API 1101 pipe codes. Crafted from EPA Approved Aquasol Water Soluble Composite Board, SoluShim is the ultimate choice for contaminant-free welding, ensuring impeccable weld quality and eliminating the need for post-weld cleanup.


  • 100% Water Soluble: Dissolves effortlessly in water, leaving no residue behind
  • Environmentally Friendly: Biodegradable and eco-conscious, minimising environmental impact
  • Universal Compatibility: Compatible with all metals, making it a versatile solution for various welding applications
  • Exceptional Durability: Highly durable and incompressible, ensuring consistent performance
  • Precise Spacing: Pre-sized and uniform in thickness for accurate gap maintenance
  • Flexible Structure: Easily bends and shapes to form any angle, adapting to complex weld geometries


  • Pipe Welding: Maintain precise gaps between pipes and flanges for flawless welds
  • Plate Welding: Ensure consistent spacing between plates for optimal weld penetration
  • Structural Welding: Maintain accurate alignment of structural components for robust welds


  1. Equally space SoluShim Water Soluble Alignment Sticks between seams of metal components to be welded. Bend SoluShim sticks to form a 90˚ angle if preferred or if required by application (i.e, pipe-to-pipe fit up).
  2. Align the components to be welded.
  3. Tack-weld the joints in the area between the alignment sticks. Be sure to avoid charring alignment sticks or tape when tack-welding.
  4. After welding is complete, introduce water to safety moisten and dissolve alignment sticks for easy, fast removal. Wait roughly 10 seconds after introducing water. Then simply pull SoluShim sticks from between the metal components or let them dissolve completely with further application of water.
