Polyvance, the pioneer of nitrogen plastic welding technology in the collision repair industry, has focused exclusively on plastic repair and refinishing products since 1981. Polyvance currently offers nitrogen plastic welding machines for shops of every budget, and Polyvance’s welders give the technician the ability to repair virtually any plastic on the vehicle, including bumper covers, headlight tabs, washer bottles, inner fender liners, rocker panel moldings, and much more.

With the recent release of their 8000-series nitrogen plastic welders, Polyvance offers an option for every shop and every budget. The 8000-series is the sixth-generation nitrogen plastic welder since Polyvance introduced the technology to the industry in 2006.

Polyvance also offers a full range of paid training options from handson training in your shop to online training for your estimating staff. Since Polyvance is an I-CAR Sustaining Partner, I-CAR credits are included at no additional cost with their training.

After the plastic weld is complete, you’ve got to restore the appearance to pre-accident condition. Polyvance offers a full line of refinish products that are compatible and designed for use on plastic every step of the way:

• Plastic cleaners, both solvent- and water-based

• Adhesion promoters, both national rule and low-VOC

• Flexible, easy-sanding epoxy and polyester fillers

• Flexible, easy-sanding waterborne primer surfacers, both in light gray and in black

• Flexible texture coatings that allow you to vary the texture from fine to coarse, in both national rule and low-VOC formulas

Polyvance demonstrates its commitment to training technicians in the proper techniques of plastic repair with its support of both SkillsUSA and I-CAR as a Sustaining Partner. And, with its new smartphone app, Polyvance puts on-demand plastic repair training in the pocket of every technician.
