Repairing Plastic Bins

You can fix cracked and broken plastic storage bins with spray on liquid tape.

Spray the edges of the break and fit them together, then spray both flat surfaces of the broken area to form a patch that extends outwardly about an inch from the break.


I used two or three coats of clear spray on the inside and outside of the container to form a strong and barely noticeable repair.

Much cheaper than buying a new bin!

Where do you buy liquid tape? Is it the same as a liquid band-aid?

What is spray-on liquid tape? Where can you buy that? Can you mention the brand name? This sounds like the answer to a lot of plastic repairs, and I'd like to try it. Thanks.

Sorry, I some how missed your requests.

The label says "Performix, Liquid Tape, Electrical Spray-on Insulation Coating" It is made by Plasti-dip International. They are on the web at I got mine at Harbor Freight. It is handy for all sorts of things, like emergency shoe repair, you name it!
