Type Welding spray welding of plastic
Type the item thoroughly with grease-resistant soap to remove all grease, dirt, oil and any flammable residue.
Dry the item completely with a rag and let it dry for at least 10 to 15 minutes.
Wear heat-resistant safety goggles and heat-resistant gloves.
Polish the broken plastic edge --
Type with 120 sand sandpaper and bypass the sharp area a little.

The type begins to melt.
Alternate welding gun between each side of the crack. As the plastic-
Type starts melting, connects the edges and keeps them in place for a minute or two until the plastic-
Type fuse together.
Continue to move along the crack line and fuse the crack edge until the entire crack is repaired.
