Plastic welding is unequivocally the best way to repair plastic items as silcone and glues do not work on some plastic types and different plastics need differernt sorts of glues in order to be effective. Plastic welding has the benefit of fusing plastic back together using heat creating a homogenous, strong and durable weld. It works very similar to metal welding. When performing a plastic weld it is important to prepare the surface of the damaged item properly beforehand and to use the correct welding filament.
At ACT Plastic Repairs we demand precision in the pre-welding surface preperation of damage items to deliver the most effective weld. We source high quality plastic welding filaments and tools from leading plastic welding suppliers such as Forsthoff and Techspan enabling us to work with all major plastic types including PP, HDPE, MDPE, LDPE, PVC, PC, PA, ABS, PET, PS and PMMA.
