    Default Plastic Welding 307 Bumper

    As per the title - I have a repair to do on a 307 bumper.


    I don't want to get the incorrect welding rods!

    Can I assume that its made of ABS plastic?

    It's not likely to be. Either PE or PP is possible.

    It maybe labelled if you check the back of it. There is guides for determining plastic types online if you search. You will need a decent plastic welder if your trying to repair a bumper. Also, buy the "cord type" rod for the break, then lay the "ribbon type" rod over the back of the repair to brace it..... Well that's worked out ok for me either way

    As per DoubleChevron, it should be labelled - pretty sure that the plastic type labelling has been law in Europe for many years now, to aid with recycling. As per Addo, it's more likely to be PP or PE, not ABS.

    Thanks for the replies gentlemen.

    I had another look and found "PP-20TD"

    This is apparently Polypropylene with 20% Talk mixed in.

    So I guess that's the type of welding rods I need!

    Once again - many thanks
