Bumpers are often the first part of the vehicle to absorb contact in a collision. That’s why providing appropriate, safe bumper repair is crucial. At Service King, we provide both the best tools, and most importantly, the right team to do the job correctly.
Bumpers are designed to protect the vehicle’s structure, as they are often the first part of the vehicle to absorb any impact in a collision. Service King’s I-CAR Gold Class certified technicians are trained in plastic bumper repair to return these crucial parts to their pre-accident condition.
At Service King, our team meticulously performs the right repair for each bumper, and reconditions your bumper to erase any signs of dents, scratches, scrapes, or indentations. Many plastic bumper parts can be repaired, especially bumper covers, which are commonly damaged on a vehicle. By saving your bumper, the technician will also be able to blend the appended paint more efficiently and accurately.
Whether your bumper is made from rigid plastic or semi-rigid plastic, our technicians are trained to repair it with precision. In addition, a plastic bumper repair can be reliably carried out whether it’s a thermoplastic or thermoset bumper, which will depend on your vehicle.
Bumper Repair Process
Bumpers made from thermoplastics are created by melting many small plastic pellets and then injecting the melted plastic into a mold. Once the mold is cooled, the bumper is then released from the mold, and the new bumper is manufactured. Because thermoplastics are so flexible, easy to reuse and recycle, and cost-effective, most plastic bumper covers tend to be thermoplastic.
Bumpers made from semi-rigid, or thermoset, plastics are created by injecting two different polymer materials together, permanently crosslinking to each other in a mold. The resulting bumper is durable, but requires the correct knowledge to repair properly.
Bring your damaged bumper to Service King and we’ll repair it to look brand new. Plus, as always, our technicians use the latest repair tools and back their work with Service King’s lifetime guarantee.
