Repair Procedures for Polyurea Exterior Auto Body Panels 910438

The continual development and usage of reinforced reaction injection molded (RRIM) polyurea automotive body panels has created a need for materials that can be used to restore damaged polyurea to its original strength and appearance. Repair materials and techniques have been developed by Kent Industries that allow damaged panels to be restored in a cost effective and timely manner in both the manufacturing plant and after-market environments. This paper will address the key criteria for the selection of repair materials, review cost considerations for repair of panels versus replacement, and describes the techniques required for achieving successful repairs with superior painted panel surface quality and gloss.
