Removing flex marks and scratches from plastics


Enduro Chris

Got white flex marks on your plastics?

Tools needed: cleaner, heat gun (adjustable works best)

Work description: Clean the plastics, take the heat gun and slowly heat it from the back side. Slowly heat until the plastic is changing the color. Let it cool and you´re done. In some cases you need to treat both sides. Test the procedure on some old parts first to get a feeling for the right temperature.

Got scratches on your plastics?

Tools needed: Sand paper (#100 - # 1000), cleaner, heat gun (adjustable works best)

Work description: Wet sand the plastics starting with the low grain first (# grain depending on the depth of the scratches) und finish with #1000 sand paper. Clean the plastics. Slowly heat until you see the plastic changing the color sort of like starting to melt. Let it cool down and you´re done. Test the procedure on some old parts first to get a feeling for the right temperature.
