Kenworth T880 Hood Repair Kit Released
The Kenworth T880 hood is notorious for breaking where the hood support struts mount. The T880 hood is made from a thermoset material called Metton which is not weldable. Polyvance has created a repair kit that is much less expensive and less time-consuming than replacing the hood and which also creates a repair that will be stronger than the original part.
The KEN T880 repair kit includes two custom-cast aluminum cups that fit over the bulges in the hood where the struts mount. The cups are bonded to the hood over a very large area using Polyvance's 2510 PlastiFix two-component methacrylate adhesive, proven to have a stronger bond to Metton than epoxy or urethane adhesives. The KEN T880 kit includes two kits of the 2510 PlastiFix adhesive, one for each cup.
The Kenworth T880 repair kit is 100% designed and built in the USA by Polyvance, a specialist in plastic repair and refinishing products since 1981. The new T880 kit is the latest addition to Polyvance's growing line of Kenworth hood repair kits which also includes the T800 and two models of the W900 (square and round pockets).
