Bakelite repair

Post  wildtone2001 on Mon Jul 02, 2018 9:55 am

The rear light on my 1954 falcon is attached to the rear mudguard by what looks like a small bakelite moulding. This is cracked, but all the bits are there. Before I drag out the Araldite, has anyone had any experience of fixing broken Bakelite parts? Tony

Hi Tony, I have had some success repairing bakelite (phenolic) mouldings using Miliput epoxy putty, which is available in several colours including black. The strength of the repair depends upon the thickness of the sections to be joined. which should be bevelled/notched to increase surface area and purchase of the bond. Miliput responds well to working when wetted with water and can be used to make mouldings.
Other putties are available!

Regards Dave
