Poly Tank Repairs

Repair Services

Plastic Fusion Service specialises in repairing a range products made from polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP), or as they are usually known, “Poly”. Our speciality is on-site repairs to poly water tanks. As we are independent repairers, it doesn’t mater what style or brand the tank is, we can usually repair it. Round, slim line, transport tank or even boomspray tanks, they are all made from Poly (PE) and generally very repairable.

Most poly repairs are made with an Extrusion Welder. These machines operate similar to a large hot glue gun except it extrudes a continual stream of molten plastic. Extrusion welding produces a strong and durable weld of similar strength to the item being repaired. This is unlike repairs with hot air guns or soldering irons that usually lack in strength and durability and usually fail again. We regularly repair tanks that have been previously repaired in this manor. We happily guarantee our workmanship and repairs.

In addition to poly, we repair a range of other plastic items. If the plastic is a type that is not suited to plastic welding, we use a range of specialised polymers for the repair. Whether it is PVC, ABS, urethane or one of the other types of plastics, there is usually a professional repair system available.

Economic & Environmental Savings

The high replacement cost of many plastic items means repairing usually makes good economic sense with significant savings. There is also environmental savings in not using resources and energy to produce a new item or having to dispose of the damage old item.

On-Site Repair Service

We can travel to your repair job with our fully self-contained 4-wheel drive repair unit. It is equipped with the latest extrusion welding equipment, generator and tools to undertake all repairs on-site. Whether your tank is in the suburbs of Melbourne or Adelaide or in the back paddock of your farm, we can travel to your job.

Alternatively you can arrange to send the item to our Horsham workshop.
