Title: Hot air repair of PVC-U profiles

Ref Code: IP12/01
Authors: C Newman

Abstract1: BRE has investigated the effectiveness of hot air repair techniques on dents in PVC-U profiles, typically seen as a result of damage caused by a burglar. Satisfactory repair on PVC-U frames requires a high level of training and skill. Where feasible, it is a more cost-effective and environmentally friendly solution than replacement. Trials on colour fastness of repaired profiles under conditions of artificial weathering indicate no significant effects on colour or gloss.
