Automotive Bumper Repair Kit From Malcom Eliminates Need to Replace Bumpers

TIVERTON, RI--(Marketwire - Nov 8, 2011) - Malcom Technologies, Inc. is introducing a new automotive bumper repair kit which includes a technique for repairing and fabricating tabs and reinforcing cracks rather than replacing the entire bumper. This kit saves money for insurers and customers while improving repair center profits, according to a company spokesman.

Malcom's Automotive Bumper Repair Kit features a compact 1200 Watt heat gun that provides heat up to 1150°F and 17.5 CFM air flow, a wide slot nozzle, and includes a proprietary mesh, and metal roller. Eliminating the need to replace bumpers previously considered non-repairable, the bumper repair employs the Heat'N Roll™ technique which pre-heats the plastic bumper and then rolls the mesh into the softened bumper, encapsulating and reinforcing the bumper.

Allowing a repair shop to repair and fabricate tabs, reinforce cracks and then finish the plastic bumper with a two-part epoxy filler, the Heat'N Roll™ technique was developed by Carl's Collision Center of Fall River, MA and Collision Quest of Boston, MA. Collision Quest was formed to create a synergy between automotive repair shops, consumers, insurers, manufacturers, and suppliers.

Malcom's Automotive Bumper Repair Kit complete with Heat'N Roll™ instructions is priced from $399.00. Pricing is available upon request.
