Repairing Azek


I dropped a board and it took a chunk out of a piece of water table cap that is Azek. What is the best approach to repair this stuff? I use epoxy and bondo on wood, but not sure about the Azek. thanks, Nick.

Thanks Tom. The epoxy will stick to it? Usually west system doesn't stick to plastic. Although Azek is some other kind of plastic.

Re: Repairing Azek


bond and fill has epoxy filler for pvc but you can use the stuff you use for wood too,or you can use a multimaster and carve out the bad peice and glue in a new section

Re: Repairing Azek


Too much work to cut out and replace. Aluminum flashing vycor mitered corner etc. Filling it will be the approach I take. Should be fine its in the back of the house. Plus it's my house, so I'll have to live with it.

Did it crush/dent or did it take a chunk out? If it's a chunk then you can just take pvc glue and glue it back in.

Re: Repairing Azek


If it is dented, use a heat gun, you can take out dents and dings. Azek has a memory.

Re: Repairing Azek


Its worst case scenario. Dented and took a chunk out, and sort of deformed the area around the chunk. I'm going to try bondo and see what happens. Already had one coat of paint on it. I was going to repair it today and my dad said: why don't you wait till we finish siding... That isn't a good sign.

If it's what I'm picturing, I'd definitely say cut it out with a multimaster and patch in like Tom said.
The Azek brand PVC glue is pretty good and will get a good solid hold. I've patched in pieces with it.
