How to Repair “Spiderweb Cracks” on Polyurethane Bumpers

How to Repair “Spiderweb Cracks” on Polyurethane Bumpers

Although Urethane bumpers are quite rare on late-model vehicles, the need may arise for one to be repaired from time to time. This bumper belonged to a 1992 Chevrolet Camaro, and, as you can see, it has developed what we call “spiderweb cracks”. These cracks are the result of dirt and grime settling inside cracked paint and eating away at the plastic over time. Let’s take a look at how to repair these cracks using products in Polyvance’s plastic repair line.
