PlastiFix is a revolutionary methacrylate monomer adhesive system that allows you to fill gaps and fabricate missing pieces. Also available in Black and Clear. Does NOT work on olefin plastics like polyethylene, polypropylene, TPO, and TEO.
If you were to mix the entire contents of this kit (liquid and powder) the resulting reaction would create a ball that is about the size of a ping-pong ball (40 mm in diameter).
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)
How large of an area will the contents of the kit cover if I have a fairing that is about 1/8" (3.18 mm) thick?
Earlier in the description, we mentioned that if you were to mix the entire contents of the kit, you could create a ball that is about the size of a ping-pong ball (40 mm in diameter). First, calculate the volume of a ping pong ball.
The volume of a sphere is 4/3πr3, so 4/3π x 203 works out to 33,4933 mm.
Now, we need to compute the length and width of a "cube" that is 3.18 mm thick where the volume of the "cube" works out to 33,4933 mm.
The formula for that would be length x width x height = 33,4933 mm. We know the height (3.18 mm) and we will assume that the length and width are the same. Now, all we need to do is solve for X.
X2mm x 3.18 mm = 33,4933 mm.
X = 102 mm (4 inches)
So, if you were to mix the entire contents of the kit and flatten it out into a 1/8 inch (3.18 mm) thick square, you would have a piece that is about a 10 cm square that is 3.18 mm thick. Or, a 4 inch by 4-inch piece that is 1/8 inch thick.
I wanted to say that I am a very PLEASED customer of your Plasti-Fix product. I own a 1970’s Cessna airplane and the airplane’s rudder fairing was cracked due to age and fatigue (a common problem on this airplane). The fairing is a NON-structural ABS plastic component designed to provide smooth airflow over the rudder dorsal fin. It is just a $40 part, but replacing it would require disassembly of the interior fuselage, removing rivets, priming and repainting. In most cases, mechanics simply drill stop the cracks and leave it that way. Replacing the $40 fairing would cost over $400. Naturally I looked for more practical options.
I spoke with an aircraft mechanic who advised me on using plastic repair kits. I did lots of research which took me to your website. I bought a Plasti-Fix kit and repaired the cracks in accordance with the included instructions. Your online videos were very helpful, too. Not only does the rudder fairing look NEW, but it holds great. It was the best money I’ve ever spent.
Amazing stuff. Please keep up the awesome work.
