The NP-3 Plastic Welder is very easy to use with a very short learning curve. The repair process is faster than any other plastic repair method. With the NP-3 you can create mounting tabs or repair broken tabs on headlight inserts, etc., even on plastics other than automotive parts. Often, a broken tab requires replacing an entire bumper which involves the possibility of aftermarket parts being installed. Keep the original and save on costs! Insurance companies want it repaired to keep replacement costs down, preventing further possible losses. More and more plastics are being used in today’s automobiles to reduce their weight so be prepared for more plastic repair opportunities in the future - Repair instead of replace!
