Hello WGer's!Based on this video:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gNqML_sfsAg&list=PL5BR7rj3fwgKeq_QSp6iMUgjplV2-CG9t&index=5and recommendations of friends who have used Plaster, I bought a kit and used it with excellent success to repair a fairing.Plastex says this will not work on polypropylene or polyethylene which most gas tanks are made of.But Plastex 3000 is supposed to be capable of repairing polypropylene and polyethylene.My questions to forum members are:1. Has anyone used Plastex 3000 to repair polypropylene or polyethylene?2. If so, was the repair successful?thanks in advance!
It was years ago, but I think this is what I used to repair an old Rifle fairing for my XS1100, and on my C-10 Concours. It literally melted and rebonded the cracks and broken pieces. Even the stressed points on the Rifle never recracked. I sanded and repainted the Rifle, but on the Concours, I just let it be.
The video was an eye opener for me. Two part: powder + liquid hardener. Not seen it before.
Not long ago I watched a YouTube video about repairing plastic using cyanoacrylate glue and baking soda.Haven't tried it yet, though.
I've used this on a number of plastic repairs and duplicate part moldings. Sets hard as a rock. Very effective.Patrick HayesFremont CA
You have used Plastex, or you have used cyanoacrylate glue and baking soda?Enquiring minds want to know!
I'm ignorant in the plastic terminology world,but so far no one has mentioned ABS.I have to do some repairs on ABS plastic parts;starter covers on my V11 & subject to verification the panniers on my G5.Inquiring minds want to know; All this information & advice on techniques & materials for plastic repairs, do they all work on ABS plastic as well, or is the chemistry different?Tia
You have used Plastex, or you have used cyanoacrylate glue and baking soda?
The baking soda is just a convenient fine powder that most people have around the house. It doesn'tdissolve in superglue and does add bulk. I have used graphite powder, aluminum oxide powder,fine sand, glass beads and fumed silica for the same purpose.
Cyanoacrylate glue and backing soda cures hard and will fill a crack well enough but it will become brittle.
Q bond is a commercially available product along these lines, works fairly well in some repairs.
Plastic welding works very well on the right kind of plastic but obviously needs more work to make it aesthetically pleasing.
