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 titled “Identifying Plastics for Efficient Repairs.”
Plastics are widely used in vehicles today, but does that mean plastic parts should be discarded if damaged?
Polyvance’s Kurt Lammon and John Wilburn will show webinar attendees that plastics can be repaired, and the right path begins with understanding what type of plastic is the correct repair method.
Webinar topics include:
- Material identification – thermoset or thermoplastic?
- Thermosetting repair with two-component adhesives (live)
- Thermoplastic repair – welding or adhesives?
- Repair of a polyethylene part with plastic nitrogen welder (under power)
- Polypropylene bumper repair with nitrogen plastic welder (under power)
- Questions and answers
After registration, a confirmation email with information about joining the webinar will be sent to you. Those unsure 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.
