•Quick curing epoxy that sets in 15 minutes and cures in 30 minutes
•Strength of 3770 PSI
•Repairs ABS, PVC, polyurethane, and polypropylene plastics   I have used this product several times in the past with GREAT results
This product in NOT available localy / special order only!!
            Polyurethane and Polypropylene
          ***Repair procedure Instructions***

    1. Clean the surfaces WELL!
     2. Score the surfaces THOROUGHLY! (use medium grit sandpaper)
        (use medium grit sandpaper)
     3. Cut a plastic patch to over lap
        the damaged area by at least ½
       inch on high stress areas:
        (IE: Plastic washer tubs)
     4. Polyurethane and Polypropylene patch...
        patch material can be got using
        an old empty detergent bottle:
    4a. Cut patch to size & THOROUGHLY
        prepare as in steps 1 & 2
     6. Mix Polyurethane and Polypropylene
        epoxy mender THOROUGHLY use = parts
        (just like any normal epoxy)
     7. Apply a smooth coat of epoxy on one
        side of plastic patch, spread epoxy
        over damaged area to be repaired,
        press patch over area smoothing excess
        repair epoxy over the edges of the patch
        piece. You will have about 10 minuets of
        working time with the plastic mender epoxy
        (at room temperature 70 degrees)
       (CAUTION the plastic mender will get hot!)
    8.  I allow the epoxy to cure over night (12 hours)
        before I test the bond.
   *    I have repaired several washing machines
        with cracked plastic tubs successfully!!
        This product is the BOMB for Polyurethane
        and Polypropylene plastics, other plastic
        epoxy glues totally harden, then when the
        repaired plastic flexes they crack and peel
        off. But this Polyurethane and Polypropylene
        repair epoxy cures with a certain amount of flex to it
        it stays flexible like the plastic it is repairing,
        So it remains tight!! And at 3770 PSI it is STRONGER
        Than the plastic your repairing!!
    **  One Sears / Kenmore washer that I fixed in this way
        has lasted for 3 years and is STILL going strong...
        (It had a 5 inch crack in the very bottom of the tub!!!)
        Please follow these instructions to the letter
        and you will have no problem!
        Good luck on your repair...
