RapidPatch® Fibre

is an extremely versatile product used in the repair of composite plastics and fibreglass. This product is for use in repairing punctures, holes, gouges, cracks and separations, etc. RP Fibre contains 1/20,000 microscopic fibres. If used in conjunction with our fibreglass reinforcement tape, the mechanical strength of the repair is increased. RP Fibre exhibits exceptional lap-shear and peel strength.

RapidPatch® Rigid

is a semi/rigid finishing filler. This product has similar adhesive properties as our fibre product, but finishes repaired areas to an ultra fine finish. RP Rigid is a must in finishing coarse repairs, and can also be used in polyester or metal repairs. RP Rigid exhibits superior peel strength.

RapidPatch® Flexible

is a flexible matrix finishing filler. This product exhibits good flexibility and adhesion. RP Flexible can be used on most flexible/semi-rigid repairs, such as: polyurethane, polypropylene, EPDM, modified polycarbonate, TPO, etc. This product exhibits excellent lap-shear and peel strength.

RapidPatch® GP3

is a modified rubber polymer adhesive. GP-3 is a unique product as it can be used in the repair of truck bodies, automotive panels, motorcycle fairings, boat hulls, underground glass storage tanks, industrial fibre pipe, etc. GP-3 exhibits exceptional flexural modulus, superior adhesion, along with high peel and lap-shear strength. Works on fibreglass, too.

RapidPatch® All Purpose

Ultra Pro Series II

hardener is recommended for greater flexural modulus, larger lay-ups and longer cure times. This product has 30% greater adhesion than our universal hardener. Recommended for use with fibre-based repairs or repairs requiring a high degree of flexural strength. UP ll exhibits improved overall performance. Not easily sandable with RP Flexible.

Universal Series I

hardener is recommended as a standard quick cure hardener. This product exhibits excellent adhesion.

How to Repair Plastic Using RapidPatch® Epoxy Adhesives

  • Remove frayed areas to be repaired. Rough sand damaged area to be repaired with 40-60 grit sand paper. All joints should be tapered type. Weld or back area to be repaired with our self-adhesive fiberglass reinforcement tape, product number RT890, for added structural integrity.
  • Mix product 1:1 on a plastic mixing board and apply to area of repair with a rubber or plastic applicator. Allow (45-60 minutes) before sanding. Rough sand with 80 grit sand paper. Re-apply if necessary.
  • To finish sand, begin with 150-180 grit sand paper. If necessary, finish sand to 400 grit. Be careful, as material has a high resin content, glazing may occur if sanded too fine.
  • You are now ready to prime and colour coat with either waterborne or solvent-based coatings.

  • NOTE: Solvent preparations are not necessarily recommended, as mold release agents can contaminate your repair causing poor adhesion. Sanding is normally sufficient. Do not touch finished area with your hands or other media prior to application of the adhesive fillers or painting.
