Nitrogen plastic welding is the latest technology for the repair of thermoplastics like bumper covers, headlights, underhood and interior parts. Thanks to the strength provided by the nitrogen fusion weld, you can repair damage to tabs, mounting holes, flanges, and grill bars that are impossible with two-part adhesives. Mastery of nitrogen plastic welding will increase the number of plastic parts you can repair, allowing you to make more profit.
Our two-day PR-02 Plastic Repair & Refinishing course focuses on the hands-on skills you need to repair a bumper from start to finish. It is more comprehensive than our PR-01 Nitrogen Welding Course in that it discusses working out dents and refinishing the plastic, skills that are essential to the plastic repair process. This course will cover the following topics:
