2.

Welding damaged area
a)

To repair cracked area, melt the area using a heat gun and attachment.

b)

To repair a hole, remove oil from the damaged area and apply aluminum tape to the rear side of the damaged area.

3.

Melt polypropylene welding rod using a heat gun and fill in the cracked area.

NOTE

Heat and melt the area indicated.

Melt the welding rod carefully so that it does not over-melt. If the welding rod over-melts like jelly, the welding
strength will deteriorate.

Use the heat gun 0.4~0.8 in.(10~20 mm) away from the repair area to be welded.
Welding rod should not move until the welded area is cooled.

4.

Grind polypropylene surface carefully.  It melts easily due to the heat generated by friction.  If melted, remove that area.
Also, grind the area where solvent is to be applied.

5.

Apply polypropylene primer evenly with a brush over an area wider than the area to be repaired.
Dry it at 20  C (68  F) for more than 10 minutes.

6.

Mix main filler material and hardener at a ratio depending on paint specifications.  Mix filler material and apply over the
damaged area.

NOTE

Mix main filler material and hardener  so that no bubbles are made.

Work immediately after mixing filler material because the filler material hardens quickly(in about 5 minutes).

Dry it at 20  C (68  F) for about 30 minutes before sanding.

Filler material consists of two types of epoxy.
When the filler material hardens, you will have a desirable finish with flexibility like polypropylene.

Use only filler material designed for use on polypropylene bumpers.

Do not grind continuously.

Area to apply solvent

Paint

Grind painted area and rough surface.
