Hi, I have a small crack on my prowler 4.5 elite and I am after a bit of plastic to melt in there. Does anyone know what type of plastic it is, and where to get it?

Thanks
Patrick

Hi Patrick
We have alot of the Ocean Kayak plastic for kayak repairs. What colour would you prefer to match your kayak?

Yellow if possible but I'm not fussy, it is a battle-scarred old beast.

If Rob doesn't have anything or you want something local give me a shout and I can help you out in Silverdale with an off cut or two of yellow plastic.

I've been doing some research on this recently myself. If it is any help the type of plastic you need must be HDPE (high density polyethylene) as this is what most roto moulded kayaks are made of. If you try any other plastic trust me it will not bond.

If you are not concerned with a good colour match. Simply use a milk bottle (if you check the underside it should say HDPE). this will melt and bond properly to fill holes and scratches. Cheers
