by | Apr 29, 2022 | 0 comments

The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) is hosting a free webinar for service technicians on Tuesday, May 3 at 4:00 p.m. ET entitled “Plastics Identification for Effective Repairs.”

Plastics are used extensively in today’s vehicles, but does that mean that plastic parts need to be discarded if damaged?

Kurt Lammon and John Wilburn with Polyvance will show webinar participants that plastics can be repaired, and the correct path begins with understanding the type of plastic to match the proper repair method.

Topics for the webinar include:

  • Identification of material – thermoset or thermoplastic?
  • Thermoset repair with two-part adhesives (live)
  • Thermoplastic repair – welding or adhesives?
  • Repair of a polyethylene part with nitrogen plastic welder (live)
  • Repair of a polypropylene bumper with nitrogen plastic welder (live)
  • Questions and answers

After registering, a confirmation email will be sent containing information about joining the webinar. Those who are not sure if they can attend are encouraged to register as they will receive a follow-up email with details on how to attend a recorded session, if available.
