LDPE Rods, Coils & Reels can be used for several popular types of repair jobs, but each plastic repair job needs to be carefully matched to the same type of Plastic Rod or Coil. Repair jobs can include windshield washer bottles, radiator overflow tanks, variety of gas tanks, fender repairs (popular for Off-Road, ATV, dirt bikes, motocross), variety of water tanks, kayaks, canoes, and agricultural water/fertilizer tanks.
These Rods, Coils & Reels are LDPE Polyethylene Plastic.
Warning: Mixing different types of plastics will likely result in poor quality repairs and poor longevity of the welds. Quite Simply, match your plastics and you're good... different plastics simply don't work well together.
Because Polyethylene is very stable (meaning few things will react with it), it is almost impossible to get quality repairs using adhesives, and also why it is used to contain chemicals (gasoline, pesticides, etc.) that would react with other plastics. Welding is the best repair method for polyethylene.
LDPE Rods, Coils & Reels: Use with any plastic labeled Recycling # 2. Also typically includes Plastic Barrels, Chemical Resistant Containers, Plastic Dustbins, Chemical-resistant pipes, plastic carrying cartons
