Rainsville, Alabama -- January 24, 2017 -- Polyvance has announced a Tech Shool Rebate Program, designed to get nitrogen plastic welders into the hands of tech school instructors all over North America so they can train their students in the latest technology in plastic repair. Polyvance is providing incentive in the form of a $300 factory rebate on the purchase of a new welder when the shop’s old welder is donated to a technical school.

The process begins when a body shop donates their old nitrogen plastic welder to a local technical school of their choice. The shop would be able to take a tax deduction for the fair market value of the plastic welder.

When the body shop then purchases a new 6085-C or 6080-CG Nitro Fuzer nitrogen plastic welder from the jobber or distributor of their choice, Polyvance will provide a $300 factory rebate check to defray its cost. Polyvance will also provide free welding rod and training to the tech school instructor so they’ll be prepared to train their students.

In business since 1981, Polyvance has focused exclusively on plastic repair and refinishing products. Formerly operating as Urethane Supply Company, Polyvance pioneered nitrogen plastic welding in 2006. According to a statement from Polyvance, the technique has become the industry-preferred method for the repair of non-structural plastic parts such as bumper fascia and headlight tabs.
