Refinishing Procedures

1. Sanding damaged areas

Shallow scratch:

• Level and finish damaged areas with #240-#400


• Polish the leveled area with #400 sandpaper.


• Use a flexible block to sand the surface evenly.

• Do not remove too much material.

NOTE: Be sure to use a tack cloth. Dust and dirt are

electrostatically drawn to the surface.

3. Applying bumper primer (clear type).

• Stir thoroughly before applying the primer. Use a

spray gun or brush depending on working condi-


• Ventilate when spraying paint. Most paint

contains substances that are harmful if inhaled

or swallowed. Read the paint label before

opening the paint container.

• Avoid contact with skin. Wear an approved

respirator, gloves, eye protection and

appropriate clothing when painting.

• Paint is flammable. Store it in a safe place, and

keep it away from sparks, flames or cigarettes.

• Cover as wide an area as possible, except for shallow

grooves (2-3 coats).


• Do not dilute the primer with thinner.

• Warm the primer if the outside temperature is below

50°F (10°C).

• Apply the primer to the back of the bumper if the

damage is a tear or hole.

Deep groove/tear:

• Level and finish burrs and other irregularities with

#240 sandpaper. Keep the surface as even as


2. Degreasing/Cleaning

• Do not use high air pressure; use only an ap-

proved, 210 kPa (2.1 kgf/cnv,30 psi) air nozzle.

• Wear goggles or safety glasses to prevent eye


• Clean with wax and grease remover and dry with

compressed air.

• Wipe off all lint and other foreign particles from the

surface with a tack cloth.

4. Drying bumper primer.

Body parts being dried with an

industrial dryer can get hot enough to cause injury.

Do not touch parts being dried.

other dryer suitable for the purpose.

Refinishing Procedures (cont’d)

• If the damage or groove is shallow, heat the entire

surface evenly. Apply heat locally if the bumper is

gouged or torn open.

Drying time:


• Use a dryer whenever possible.

• Do not allow temperature to exceed 1 58°F (70°C) or

the bumper will deform

7. Sanding filler

To prevent eye injury, wear goggles

or safety glasses whenever sanding, cutting or


Wet sand first with #240 sandpaper then with #400


NOTE: Sand the surface evenly, particularly at the area

where the PP resin and mender meet.

8. Degreasing/Cleaning

• Blow off the sanded surface, then clean with wax

and grease remover.

• Do not use high air pressure; use only an ap-

proved, 210 kPa (2.1 kgf/cm’,30 psi) air nozzle.

• Wear goggles or safety glasses to prevent eye


• Remove all dust and dirt with a tack cloth.

5. Apply filler (BOND QUICK MENDER.)

Mix the mender (A) into the hardener (B) in the ratio of

I to I, and stir until they are thoroughly mixed.

-1. Apply the mixture over the damaged area with a

putty knife using light pressure.

-2. Even out the surface to match the contour of the


— 3. If there is a hole, cover it with a masking tape from

the back, and apply the filler over the outside


After the filler has been dried, remove the tape
