Cuts and Gouges: Procedures

  • Clean and dry the damaged area.
  • Use a razor blade or a sharp knife to remove burrs or chips.
  • Mix a small amount of Devcon Plastic Welder and apply just enough to fill the area to the surface.
  • Stretch a piece of saran wrap or plastic over the material and smooth out with finger (optional).   It can help produce a smooth surface. Remove after everything is dry.
  • Allow to cure until hard (can be handled in one hour or sooner, full strength in 24 hours).
  • If needed lightly wet sand with 400 grit, polish with a buffer or compound.
  • You can spray the area with a high gloss acrylic spray paint if you wish.  Clear acrylic will eliminate small scratches as well.
