Product Description and Specs

The KC Welder Pro has an 80 Watt element, flat tip and a 3/16 in. hole in tip for repair rod insertion. Includes a selection of Hobie color welding rods. Fix holes and cracks or customize polyethylene products. Insert the rod into the tip and place against the product to be welded. The tip heats the plastic surface and the rod. As the materials melt, move the tip along the repair area while pushing the rod into the tip to fill the repair area with new plastic material. Plug small holes after moving accessories. Rebuild keels after excessive wear from dragging.

No specific directions included.....applied the weld.....and the kayak still leaks....not satisfied at all.....seems like a waste of money...was there another step that we were supposed to take before the weld?

This welding kit works great but please note that the welder gets so hot it will discolor the lighter kayak colors but functionally this is a great, cost effective solution to DIY repairs.

These items worked very well with other steps to plastic weld a small crack in an expensive kayak. It is not difficult or costly to perform such a repair, and these tools were a small investment.

Top Question & Answer
Q: Is this the correct repair rod for Pelican kayaks? Specifically, Apex 130T Tandem?
A: I do not recommend using this repair kit on the Pelican kayaks. I recommend contacting Pelican for more information on repairing these kayaks. Please let us know if you have any questions.
