Almost any plastic can be welded, one of the many tools I had while racing offroad was a plastic welder, I used for many things but mostly cracked fuel tanks or body parts ( not mine, the bikes )

PP can be welded, ( DIY ) the question is it worth investing a little money into the welder ( which isn't that much )

to help you figure out what plastic you have and what's needed to repair

Identify Plastic

and here's the supply house

Freedom comes when youíre ready to sail away. True freedom comes when you donít have to return

Cut off from the land that bore us, betrayed by the land we find, where the brightest have gone before us and the dullest remain behind, .......but stand to your glasses, steady,.......tis all we have left to prize, raise a cup to the dead already, hurrah for the next that dies
