New Area of Knowledge for SkillsUSA: Nitrogen Plastic Welding

If you are planning on competing in this year’s 2017 SkillsUSA competition, there will be a new knowledge area being introduced, nitrogen plastic welding. However, this will not become part of the scoring until 2018. Let’s take a look at what will be required.

Polyvance has created a video demonstrating what the general repair area will look like on the bumper cover. The video shows step-by-step instructions on what is required to repair the bumper. Some of these steps include: cleaning, prep for welding, welding, and the finishing process. It also, shows the rigorous destructive testing done to the bumper cover after it is repaired. The video can be viewed on YouTube.
