Practical Guide To Repair Your TPE Sex Doll


Table of Contents

To get started with the task of repairing your TPE dolls, the first tool to have at hand will be an infrared gun with the usual 1.5 Kilowatts. It comes handy as you can see real-time temperature feed. You can purchase on Amazon or anywhere online. Meanwhile, depending on the nature of the damage, the repairs you carry out will vary. For instance, if the damage is minor, the repairing process will be simple and won’t require much effort or skills.

There can be an indentation mark on your sex doll due to the impact of weight. Generally, such pressure marks appear when you press the surface of your sex doll with heavy items. The same impact can be seen when you lay her improperly without giving attention to the importance of correct position or posture. However, you can still relax and not be anxious as there is a rule-of-thumb procedure you can put to use.

 

The Hot Towel Procedure

Hot Towel Procedure

Cover the visible pressure dents with a hot, clean towel for some amount of time. Next, put on a glove and pat the same area with your hand. Repeat the same action until the indentation disappears.
 

The Hair Dryer Method

It appears a hairdryer is one versatile accessory. While people think a hairdryer is only meant for blowing wet dreadlocks dry, it also offers a solution for your TPE doll repair work. 

To get started, get hold of a wet clean towel. A white cloth will be preferable. Then, cover the pressure marks with the cloth and heat the surface. Continue the same process for some amount of time. You will notice that the pressure marks and indentation on your sex doll surface start to disappear gradually.

When applying this procedure, you need not worry about unwanted skin damage. Your TPE doll can perfectly withstand temperatures as high as 200 degrees Celsius.

 

How to Repair Tears And Abrasions?

Easy Fix For Neck or Leg Rip, Arm Tear or General Abrasion

If the manner in which you use your sex doll is inappropriate and rash, it will pose a structural hazard resulting in damage. That said, there are two ways to go about repairing this particular TPE grouse.

Repair Tears And Abrasions

Method #1 - Using TPE Glue

The first option is the use of TPE glue.

In order to make this process work, locate the damaged portion that is torn, and apply the TPE glue on it by means of a fine-tipped tool. After that, pull the two sides of the laceration together. Make sure to hold the patch for a minute or two, and it will become intact again.

Procedures for applying glue:

  1. Firstly, get rid of any dirt or excess oil from the critical area to be treated. You can do this by wiping the area with 70% isopropyl alcohol.
  2. Using your hand sheathed with a glove, open the wound.
  3. Then by means of a spatula, evenly apply the TPE repair coating solvent on the inner surface of the wound. In the meantime, avoid having an excess drop of the glue hanging off the tip of your spatula and also replace the cap on the glue bottle to prevent the evaporation of the solvent.
  4. Rub the spatula against the inside of the tear on both sides.
  5. Then pull the two sides of the tear together and allow the TPE repair solvent to bind back the wound. Keep the wound closed for some time.
  6. By means of a tissue or a clean cloth wipe off any excess that gets squeezed out of the bound back tear. While doing so, refrain from using your fingers as you will leave behind unwanted prints and impressions.
  7. Make sure that there is no tension on the surface of the doll that can put a strain on the re-joined wound.
  8. Position the doll in such a way that there will be no tension on the critical surface for the next 24 hours.

 

Using TPE Glue

 

Pro Tips:

Preparing the Doll for Procedure

To maximize the effectiveness of the TPE glue, consider cleaning the damaged area with cleaning agents such a cleanser, soap, nail-polish cleaner, or a make-up remover. In the meantime, leave no water stains on the surface of the doll’s skin. Always keep it dry and clean.

Position the Sex Doll Correctly

That said, factoring in the posture of the sex doll is very important. Ensure that the wound area enjoys a horizontal posture. This will make sure that the quantity of glue applied confined within the wound and does not overflow the breakage. In the meantime, being meticulous and careful is of the essence. Each step requires a minute precision; otherwise, the result will be far from being satisfactory. There will be uneven bonding that ruins the symmetrical aspect of the sex doll.

 

Method #2 - The Heat Gun Procedure For Fixing Abrasions on Doll Skin

Heat Gun Procedure

The most common types of heat gun within your grasp are the typical 1.5 Kilowatt ones you can purchase online. They come with an advantage as there is an attached temperature sensor that you can use to monitor the amount of heat applied. They feature digital interface and work excellently well.

Procedure

Clean the Surface

So to get started, clean the skin surface with either baby oil or Vaseline. This part is essential as it serves two purposes. One, you will have a clean and sterile skin surface; secondly, the heat applied will be distributed more evenly. So applying oil is essential if you don’t want to end up with a burned doll skin.

Clean the Surface

Use Heat Gun On Affected Area

Then, proceed with focussing the heat gun on the skin. Be mindful of the distance you keep between the device and the doll skin. Do not focus it too close or else it will cause severe burns resulting in a disaster. Maintain about four inches distance from the wound skin area.

Use Heat Gun On Affected Area

Tip: Having a test piece of the TPE material will be of great value. You can easily lay hands on one by obtaining it from the TPE vendor. You can use it to practice and be conscious of the melting temperature of the TPE material. Get familiar with the right parameters with regard to the application of heat before taking the plunge.

Reach The Desired Temperature

That said, melting temperature occurs somewhere around 110 degrees Celsius. Then you will notice a glaze like a mirror finish that comes up as a result of the heating. You will know when to stop increasing the temperature by seeing the intensity of fume coming out from the heating. Heat the skin of your sex doll up to the required temperature.

Gently Fix the Abrasion

Then grab a piece of cloth and feather out the surface irregularities caused by the abrasion. Keep up with several iterations of heating and cooling and reiterate the same for a number of times. This is the key to arriving at a fine finish as you make it smoother every time you repeat the heat-and-cool procedure.

Gently Fix the Abrasion

In the meantime, you have thirty seconds to work on smoothing out the abrasion. Needless to say, the temperature drops pretty fast, and you have to seize on the moment to carry out as much smoothing work as possible.

 

Pro Tips For Fixing Abrasions

  • Meanwhile, repeated heating and cooling of the doll will result in the oil getting dried up. Therefore reapply the oil after every iteration. This is really important because keeping it moist will give you a good finish.
  • That said, after several times of repeating the heating and cooling process you will see a satisfactory result. When all is done, apply a bit of powder to have an excellent finish. Applying the powder is really useful here because it blends in with the texture and makes the repair virtually invisible.
  • Make sure there you are in an open space and wear a mask to avoid the health hazard due to unwanted fume inhalation.
  • Also, use the infrared gun with care to make sure you don’t overheat or burn as you are wielding a high-temperature device.

 

Fix Doll Facial Cuts 

Repairing your TPE doll's facial cuts and tears can be done using a similar setup but requites a lot more practice. A steady hand and right tools can help you repair small facial cuts on your sex doll.

However, if you are trying for the first time we recommend you purchase a new sex doll head instead. This will completely revamp your real doll and is worth every penny.

Most genuine branded doll heads will cost you less than 400 USD and that is an excellent bargain. For it's not just a new head, it is an extra head with unique looks. Your same doll body can now have two different looks and personas.
