In this ABRN How2 edition, plastic repair is going to be covered. One of the biggest concerns when repairing plastics is proper adhesion. This includes welding and adhesive repair methods. Each method requires specific steps and/or test to assure maximum adhesion to the repair area.
ABRN, Ohio Technical College, and Butler Community College have joined forces to bring you the ABRN HOW2. OTC demonstrates how to test the different types of filler rod to be used on the type of plastic being repaired. These simple test will help you determine the correct rod. However, one problem with plastic is that there may be several types of plastic combined into a part, which can make it hard to determine the exact type of plastic. That is why using the test as mentioned in the video is the best way to make rod selection.
