Eastwood Rigid Plastic Repair Kit - 411

Tricks Of The Trade

Dec 9, 2010

Often times, broken parts or stress cracks on plastic components can render them useless, forcing you to replace them, costing valuable time and money. Such was the case with a set of damaged Subaru WRX timing belt covers due to an exploding cam gear. Rather than discarding the pieces and spending $60.00 a pair, we purchased a plastic repair kit through Eastwood. The Plastex Plastic Repair Kit makes strong, permanent repairs to almost any hard plastic including ABS, poly-carbonate, acrylic, styrol, PVC, and FRP (polyester).

Mix the black powder and solvent together before applying to repair cracks, fill gaps, "weld" panels, or fix stripped threads. Within minutes, the liquid solution cures into a hard plastic coating. The kit includes a reusable molding bar so you can replicate and attach broken tabs, patch holes-even make small parts. We should note although the plastic repair solution works on numerous types of plastic, it won't adhere to polypropylene or polyethylene material. The black kit we used works best for structural repairs and is the strongest of three kits available. The white repair kit is the second strongest, and clear is designed specifically for headlight lens repair.
