The equipment should not be used to cut non-ferrous metals underwater since they do not oxidize and have to be melted. Experience has shown that this can result in a violent explosion which could be fatal.

| A similar exothermic cutting method is the Seeler Enterprises LU-001 Exothermic Cutting Tool (Kerie Cable). Unlike a rigid electrode, the consumable electrode is a long flexible spiral cable with the center strand pulled out to allow for oxygen passage. The cable consists of six bundles of high tensile steel wire. The cordless cable is surfaced with a rough ultraviolet inhibitor which is encased in a plastic sheath. To facilitate connecting to the control panel, a threaded female fitting is crimped to one end of each length of cable.
