PVC products have a built-in resistance to damage and will return to their original shape when subjected to normal impact. There is no transmission of shock, which means damage is localized to the point of impact. Repairs can be made by returning the product to its original shape and re-applying finish to the damaged area. If cut, the product can be repaired with vinyl cement.
Caulking: Caulking materials bond very well to PVC products. Contact caulk manufacturer or Plastic Components, Inc. for specific recommendations. Painting: No special preparation necessary.
We recommend Ultra-Tech® elastomeric sealant.
