3M’s plastic repair materials provide a solution for fixing cracks, holes and tears in automotive plastic parts. Perfect for plastic bumpers, the Instant Plastic Repair Patch provides fantastic instant stability without waiting for products to cure. The Superfast Plastic Adhesive makes repairing tabs or lugs exceptionally quick and easy to provide a high quality, efficient repair.
Whether your bumper is cracked at an edge (Bumper Edge Repair) or punctured right through (Centre Panel Plastic Repair), 3M can offer you the right method to repair, instead of having to replace the part.
Repairing means there is no waiting time and no need for costly purchase of replacement parts - instead you can invoice for valuable work time, saving money for you and the customer.
Be it to fix a light or a bumper, a tab is easily broken, but can just as easily be reliably repaired and rebuilt by using 3Ms Plastic Tab Rebuild Process.
Using our fast cure Superfast Adhesive allows you to repair the part instead of having to replace it. This clearly speeds up your process and saves money at the same time.
Tip: If you only have to do a small cosmetic repair like a scratch or a stone chip repair, use 3M Hookit™ Cubitron™ II 220+ discs with a DA sander and a large orbital (7-8 mm). Cubitron™ II removes the paint without creating deep plastic scratches and thus enables faster repair to the area.
To recreate the surface again, apply 05917 Polyolefin Adhesion promoter, let it flash off for 10 minutes and apply 3M Flexible Plastic Filler 05887 or 3M Plastic Filler 51009 prior to Primer application.
