Thread: Plastic Pants Repairs.

  1. #1

    Default Plastic Pants Repairs.

    I got two types of plastic pants this year and the side seam became undone.

    I do not know if there was to much air in them and when I sat up it popped out a weak seam or they just became undone as the body heat warmed the seam.

    Anyway I attempted to repair them and it worked.

    Using a technic to seal the "skin" on radio control air planes worked.

    Set down a towel on a flat surface (table top).
    Set the Iron to silk setting.
    Turn pants inside out.
    Carefully position seam so that it is flat and both sides are laying over each other.
    Use the tip of the iron to "tack" the seam in 2 or 3 places.
    Place the tip of the iron on the seam for about 5 seconds then move it to the next spot.
    Now use the side of the iron to seal the seam for a count of 10 to 15 seconds.

    The plastic should weld into each other and a good seam is made.

    Just be careful not to get the iron to hot. You want to melt weld the two sides together on the seam, not melt it to a point it sticks to the iron.

    I repaired three pairs and the seams look OK not as neat as the original, but when I tested the seam it held and did not tear.

    I hope this is useful to someone.

    i used the same teckneek (c'mon, it's about time that we englished it) to make a doubly thick pair of pants, as worn thus,

    i've also used it to repair holed pants, so always handy to have some fresh, or as-new, material for such.

    In the past I have used a bike tire repair kit, on on the inside of the pants, and one on the outside. works well.

    I've used a hot glue gun when the threads start to unravel. I haven't had one do that in a long while, but every once in a while I'll get on that does. I've also used hot glue to seal a small amount of plastic when the plastic splits at the leg opening.

    I poked a nail through mine and used a square or duct tape inside and out. No leaks!

    I've actually used one of the vacuum sealers on a pair of mine to get a nice even seam. Worked great.

    The iron trick sounds like a good idea. I have tried bicycle tube cement/pieces of plastic pants as patches, also krazy glue with some success.
