Plastic is a very versatile compound that is found in many man-made objects. While plastic can be thin and pliable, hard plastic can be thick and solid as a rock. It can stand up under great stress, but, like most products, it can incur damage after time and heavy use. However, you can repair a hole in hard plastic in a process that takes less than 20 minutes to complete.

  1. 1

    Mix Plast-aid. Wearing gloves, mix 1 part Plast-aid bonding powder to 1 part Plast-aid bonding liquid in the mixing cup provided.

  2. 2

    Mix well for approximately 2 minutes the mixing stick provided.

  3. 3

    Add a few drops of acrylic paint (to match the colour of the plastic you are patching) to the Plast-aid mixture and stir well.

  4. 4

    Apply the coloured mixture to the hole in your hard plastic using your mixing stick.

  5. 5

    Wipe away any excess mixture or mistakes with your wet hand cloth. Allow the Plast-aid to set for about 10 minutes to completely cure. Once cured, the Plast-aid compound will be as hard as the plastic, and the hole will be filled.

Tips and warnings

  • Do not let the Plast-aid compound sit too long before applying to the hole as it will harden stiff.
