You'll be amazed at what you can do with Plast Aid!
Plast-aid is a 2-part compound: a liquid and a powder, like nothing else on the market. When combined, a unique curing process begins. As it thickens, it transforms from a castable liquid, to a glue, to a putty, to a clay. After about 10 minutes it forms a hard, durable, waterproof acrylic plastic that can then be sanded, drilled, or filed.
Plast-aid even adheres to damp PVC fittings! It's the only product we've found that permanently seals leaks in PVC pipes. Forming a molecular bond, like welding steel, Plast-aid becomes a part of the plastic itself. Unlike fiberglass or epoxy, it's friendly to handle, and has a long shelf life.
Acrylic Spa Shell Repairs
The most amazing feature to spa owners with cracked spa shells, is that being an acrylic product, Plast-aid can be colored with artist's acrylic paints (available at any art supply in a huge range of colors) for matching repairs.
Pick out a color or colors to match your spa shell color, mix a small amount of the acrylic paint with Plast-aid, and you have a permanent repair compound for spa cracks and defects. The repair can be smoothed and shaped prior to hardening, then sanded and buffed after hardening.
Far superior to epoxy, glue, or fiberglass resin, so you'll find countless other uses around the home, auto, workshop, boat or RV.
Product notes: Forms a permanant molecular bond to acrylic, PVC, polycarbonate, CPVC, ABS. Forms a mechanical bond to many other materials.
9/12/2014 Effective and Unique Product Stopped 2 big leaks in the 2" PVC pipes coming out of our jet pump by plastering the outside of the joints with Plast-Aid. It's nice and dry in there now. Be ready, and work fast once it starts to harden. The finish gets a little rough if you try to shape it after the putty stage.

12/23/2013 super!!!! I had a leak in a hot tub hose that would have been difficult to repair. I googled repairing a hot tub hose leak and, behold, up popped plast-aid! I took a chance and it performed admirably. If I had to call in a repairman it probably would have cost $200. It sealed the leak with 2 applications.
