  • Polyethylene (PE or "Poly") Body Repair

    -Only repair Polyethylene with Polyethylene
    -Heat an iron to 475-525 degrees
    -Apply heated iron to both surfaces simultaneously(one side of iron to damaged body and one side to repair piece)
    -Be sure not to melt completely through the surface to be repaired
    -A 1/8 inch bead around the edge of the iron is what you want to achieve
    -After both surfaces get a good melt, press together with 50lbs of pressure and hold for approximately 30 seconds or until cool

    I have heard a lot of people asking about fusing polythelene plastic to repair thier machines so I decided to ask my dad, who is certified to fuse polyethelene plastic pipe for the gas company, to write down what he thought would be useful to know when repairing a polyethelene body.
