How can I fix cracks or breaks in plastic lawn chairs?

Hi Patty. If the cracks are cosmetic
If the cracks are structural, put out in the recycle bin. There is nothing that can safely fix that.
*The sand paper is to lightly rough up the surface to give the paint a better gripping surface.
Try J.B. Weld sold at Lowe's or Home Depot!
I don’t think anything would hold. Best to get rid of them and buy new ones.
Hello -Structural repair or cosmetic?
Heres a cheaper - generic solution —->to JBWeld.
But as strong as this putty is you may wish to watch the weight of the chairs users as not to overly stress the repair if you proceed—- for caution safety wise! I would suggest doing the repair on the bottom side where it might not be noticed.
Ive repaired so many things with the Oatey epoxy putty stick!
I find it easier to work with than bondo and this clay like putty can be sculpted. It does harden in a few minutes and will dry gray needing painting.
It's a two-part epoxy sticky-found at big box hardware stores for about $6.
You mix press -then you can use scrape off excess (I use depleted gift card) and/or sand and paint. Cured putty is strong enough to drill through. Its a light grey putty.
Oatey Putty safely seals/waterproofs for plumbing boat repairs.... Ive used it for exterior entry door frame wood rot repair, elliptical pedal repair, multiple arts and crafts repair of furniture, pottery- wood -ceramic- concrete statues -both wooden and metal candlesticks, even a garage laundry sink with a hole ( thanks for hiding that defect with carrots -previous homeowner)
Every home owner crafter or second hand shopper need a 2 part putty epoxy stick!
You can find other slightly more expensive and smaller 2 part epoxy sticks versions in the boat marine and wood repair sections this Oatey one is a great value.
Consider the epoxy putty for your repair needs.
