Plastic bumpers may all look the same; but the truth is, they come in different types. And with each type comes different repair methods that largely depend on their durability, flexibility, and strength. Check out this presentation to learn more about the most common types of plastic bumpers.
Although plastic bumpers are all plastic, different types may require a different approach
to repairing bumper damage. The most common plastics used in bumper and plastic
parts manufactured today are polypropylene, polyurethane, polyvinyl chloride and ABS.
Depending on the vehicle the bumpers along with the grills, the skirts, the spoilers and
body kits can be made of any of these or combinations of. Each plastic has its own
characteristics of flexibility, strength and durability and requires a different repair
technique to accommodate these differences.
