I have a white fiberglass acrylic whirlpool tub. A piece of acrylic
coating about 1/2" in diameter fell off, the fiberglass core itself is
undamaged. How do I repair it? Unfortunately the fell off acrylic
piece split into multiple pieces and I cannot glue it to fiberglass
what did the manufacturer say when you called them? they make repair
kits for specific types of plastic; you have to get the right one or it
won't stick. it'll probably still be apparent that it was fixed.
Plenty of hits for acrylic spa repair kits on Google.
These kits normally contain methyl methacrylate monomer and curing agent
along with some polymer and filler and are usually 2 parts, one with
monomer and other with curing agent.
Tubs themselves are thermoformed acrylic sheet and fiber glass backing
is sprayed on for rigidity and the binder is most likely polyester which
does not matter here.
First place I'd talk to is seller of tub.
