More On Plastic Welding Repairs
Hot-air welding is superior to Mini-Weld's heated-tip method for structural repairs because it provides more control, and minimizes the potential of voids when nitrogen gas is used (see Model 6051). But, for most users repairing a poly water tank, ATV fender, or ABS bumper, the heated-tip welding method is more than satisfactory.
On the Mini Weld 6 detail page you'll be able to read how easy it is to weld plastic on, litterally, any kind of plastic or nylon. On that page are details about how plastics are identified, the variety of plastic rods that come standard with the Mini Weld 6, and how easy other customers have found plastic welding to be (read their reviews). The Mini Weld 6 comes with the seven types of plastic rod to repair virtually ANY plastic (or nylon) product.
Plastic adhesives (shown in the category at left) increases thickness, fills voids, and bonds layers of plastics. These are 'hot' adhesives, not in temperature, but in the manner in which they chemically 'weld' the plastics together. Adhesives are about 90% as strong as a weld by similar thickness. Use a plastic welder to repair a split, crack, or small puncture. Use a plastic adhesive to fill voids, join overlapping sections, and to make an area inherently stonger by building up the area's thickness (like around a tank's nozzle).
