The KC Welder Pro with Ocean Kayak Color Rod Stock allows you to fix holes and cracks or customize polyethylene products. 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 Ocean Kayak color welding rods. 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 or even rebuild keels after excessive wear from dragging.
Neat product. Does what it should and does it well. As far as instructions go. I learned watching you-tube videos. I would recommend get a hot air gun to help soften the area to be weilded.
The product is effective at repairing kayaks, but it comes with no instructions. So, it is a trial an error process learning to use the tool. It is fairly simple. A hot air gun may be a better option than the welder.
Works very well, is easy to clean. I had to polish the face but was easy to do.
The product performed perfectly for the intended repair. This welder can fill most voids/cracks with no problem(If it can't...probably need a new boat). The supply of welding rods included makes a nice "easy buy" package.
