Plastic window sills, despite the plasticity of the material, are still prone to cracking. Often they appear during transportation, and a defect can be noticed only after installation, when the protective film is torn off. In order not to beat off the plaster and not tear off the defective window sill, you can repair the crack, and it’s perfect. It’s quite easy and inexpensive.
What will be required:
- Cleaner “Cosmo CL-300.120” – http://alii.pub/6awa5m
- liquid plastic glue for PVC panels – http://alii.pub/6awa5m
- a piece of white cloth;
- metal spatula.
PVC window sill crack repair process
The defect on the windowsill must be treated with a cleaner. The substance has a pungent odor, so it is important to ensure good ventilation. Cosmofen does not just clean the surface, but slightly softens the PVC, thus providing super-strong adhesion of the liquid plastic. It is important to use only a white rag so as not to stain the window sill with its dye.
Using a spatula, liquid plastic is applied to the treated defect. It is enough to roughly distribute it and wait until it hardens. Then the crack is wiped with a cloth dipped in a cleaner to remove all sagging.
Next, glue is applied again. You need to wait again, and also remove the influxes with a cosmofen. This is repeated until the defect layer by layer is completely corrected.
After that, you can wipe the entire window sill with a cleaner so that it turns completely white like a repaired area. This is how quickly and easily you can close up not only a crack, but also a hole in the windowsill.
