P-Tex repair

At SENDY we are all about keeping gear in the mountains longer. So here is quickie on how to fix a snowboard base with P-tex.

P-Tex is a type of plastic that is commonly used to repair small damages to snowboards, such as scratches or small cracks. Here is a step-by-step guide to repairing a snowboard with P-Tex:

  1. Clean the damaged area of the snowboard with a cleaning solution and a soft cloth. Make sure the area is completely clean and free of dirt, oil, and wax.
  2. Melt the P-Tex by lighting the end of the P-Tex stick with a lighter or match. Keep the P-Tex stick about 6 inches away from the flame to prevent burning.
  3. Apply the melted P-Tex to the damaged area of the snowboard by pressing the melted end of the P-Tex stick onto the board. Make sure to apply the P-Tex evenly and thinly.
  4. Allow the P-Tex to cool and harden completely. This usually takes 5 to 10 minutes.
  5. Sand the P-Tex with a fine-grit sandpaper to smooth out any rough edges or bumps. Make sure to sand evenly to prevent any dips or bumps.
  6. Wax the snowboard: Apply a fresh coat of wax to the entire snowboard, including the P-Tex repair. This will help protect the repair and keep it from becoming damaged.

It is important to note that P-Tex repairs are not suitable for large damages or cracks, and should only be used for small repairs. With major damage, it's best to take it to a professional repair shop. P-tex can fix just about anything if you're in a jam and just need to go snowboarding, and it's better than letting the wood core get wet.
