Due to the fact that the manufacture of modern bumpers are widely used polymer materials in case of accident the question arises about the possibility of repairing plastic body parts.
For repairing of bumpers, made of plastic, apply epoxy glue. Therefore, in preparation for the upcoming repair of the bumper you need to purchase an auto in the repair kit based on epoxy. The package includes a repair kit and fiberglass.
Epoxy adhesive - two-component. In its composition contains a curing agent which is thoroughly mixed in a certain proportion (see the instructions on the package). Ready to use with glue impregnated fiberglass that is glued from the inside to the damaged areas of the bumper.
In those cases when it is necessary to strengthen the bonding part, on the inner surface of the bumper is glued to the metal mesh, which top is covered with epoxy impregnated fiberglass.
Drying, and more specifically, the polymerization of epoxy adhesive occurs during the day. After the specified period is the final treatment of surfaces: sanding, painting, polishing.
Epoxy glue is a poisonous chemical compound, so the repair must be performed in a well ventilated area.
Advice 2 : How to glue a bumper on the VAZ
Trouble driving usually suffer almost every car owner, including the owner of the Vase. There are cases of damage to the bumper, which, fortunately, can be fixed by yourself, by gluing. Therefore it is not necessary if it is damaged immediately rush to the store and buy a new one.
You will need
- - polyester resin;
- - epoxy adhesive.
Before you start to glue the bumper on the VAZ, determine what material it is made, as this will depend on the technology of its repair. To do this, look at the markings on the inner surface of the bumper.
Then disconnected from the car bumper, good clean and inspect it for cracks or breakouts. Small crack, not sealed in time in the future can bring a lot of trouble, so take note of any damage. If your bumper is a polypropylene, then solder a small crack with a soldering iron, and if the material of the bumper is polyurethane, then soldering will be unacceptable.
The bumper is made of polyurethane glue using epoxy adhesive. This polymer clay will allow you to resolve various damages, while saving you money. Before gluing in place of damage to align all the bumps, heating the bumper from the inside. Then well move to each other adjacent the sides of the bumper, making them a sweep.
Stripped, degrease parts in a special solvent. Then epoxy adhesive in a certain ratio mix with polyester resin and start to put it on the inner side of the bumper. Once the glue take the tape, flip the bumper and engage the outer bonding. Fully cured adhesive can be cleaned, but in this case, the stripped surface must be painted as damaged film easily transmit moisture, and this is a very negative impact on the structure of the adhesive.
After the bumper will be restored, make it a complete face lift to the glued cracks were less noticeable as possible.
Be careful gluing the bumper any polymer glue as the fumes are poisonous to the human body. Therefore, bonding to produce a special mask and in a well ventilated area.
The missing pieces of the bumper can be replaced with fiberglass, gluing piece by piece, until you reach the desired thickness.
