Ireland's Publication for the refinishing & associated Industries

Profit from plastic repairs

To help bodyshops earn more money from plastic repair, Farécla, the UK’s leading refinishing experts, has up-dated its Lord Fusor plastic repair guide entitled Focus on Profit.

As well as explaining the benefits of plastic repair vs replacement of parts, the manual highlights the technical training that Farécla can provide to technicians and VDAs in order to repair plastic components safely and increase profitability.

Everything required to repair plastics is available in the Fusor ‘complete plastic repair system’ available from Farécla as featured in the new brochure. Body parts, trim, bumpers, headlamps, dashboards, drip guards, wheel arch liners or under the bonnet plastics like battery boxes can be skilfully repaired using this kit which includes dispensing gun, reinforcing mesh, process charts and a DVD. Furthermore, Fusor adhesives are extremely versatile and work on all types of plastic; there is no need for plastic identification with the use of FA602EZ, and because of the incredible performance of the products all adhesive repairs carry the unique Lord Fusor lifetime warranty.

To further support bodyshops who want to make the most out of plastic repair, Farécla’s technical and sales teams offer an unrivalled level of expertise and training at the bodyshop or local college.

“Our technical team is helping train many bodyshops to identify which plastic components can be successfully repaired, and develop the confidence and skills required to repair them,” said Mark Taylor, Farécla Products. “Many items which are put in a skip can be saved using the Fusor plastic repair system. By repairing more plastics correctly using quality products, bodyshops can reduce parts delays, meet insurance company targets for lower average repair costs, improve cash flow and, very importantly, increase revenue.”
