Why Repair Plastics?

An entire industry has risen out of what we throw away. Yeah, that’s right, remanufactured bumper covers. How did this happen? Most likely, someone ventured out of his comfort zone and tried to repair a bumper cover without studying or researching the repair process for a successful repair, did a “cobbled up” job that failed and vowed, “Never again!” He started throwing away repairable covers that were then salvaged and repaired by someone with less skill but more knowledge than he had. These covers were then sold back to him as remanufactured or reconditioned, while he whined about the unknown primer, pits, scratches and waves in the cover he just bought.

Does this make sense to you? The bottom line is that many plastic parts are repairable, especially bumper covers, which are some of the most commonly damaged parts on an automobile.

Properly performed repair makes sense, too, when it comes to painting. If you can repair a bumper cover, chances are the damage will be localized. That means you’ll be able to blend the color away from adjacent panels if possible, whereas replacing a cover requires complete painting of the part as well as the inherent color match and possible blending of adjacent panels that may be necessary.

Bumper covers are made of several plastics, all of which fall into two categories: thermoset and thermoplastic. Thermoset plastics can be thought of as a chemically catalyzed process. Part A and Part B are mixed together and injected into a mold. Once set, the part won’t melt with heat…it’s set.
