How to fix TPE tears on sex dolls.

Armpit and other joint tears are some of the most common. You can prevent them by not stretching the arms too much and by not putting too much compression stress on the inner sides of the arms and knees. Be sure to hydrate the skin with mineral oil every 3-6 months. Nevertheless, if you got a tear, here's how to fix it. 

  • Don't use TPE glue. It will melt away edges like battery acid. People had major tears made bigger because TPE glue doesn't act like a seal, or bond well either.
  • The soldering iron method is ineffective for armpits and will introduce debris. 


    Use a super glue, Krazy glue, or Gorilla glue. Use small amounts just below the edges of the tear. The glue will be hard and crusty when it's dry, so this is not recommended for the repairs of the penis or anus. However, if any crust is sticking out, you can trim it with scissors. Using less glue also means less crust.  


    Order a TPE chunk for repairs here.

    Alternatively, you can get the needed filler material from the top of neck. 

    You will need a small scalpel, such as this.

    You will need a heat gun.

    Melt TPE only in a very well ventilated area and use a gas mask to protect yourself from fumes. 

    Clean area well to avoid contamination of the cut area, otherwise you will get powder, lint, or oil turn the melted TPE black.

    Get 3M 94 tape primer. You are going to need to make paste, which is made from the primer and chopped up TPE. You can order extra TPE, or you can take some from the neck stump or if you have an extra penis you don't care about chopping up, use that.

    You are also going to need a small butane torch, mineral/baby oil, a small metal kitchen spoon you will never use to eat with again, rubbing alcohol, make-up sponges, a few craft paint brushes and a small glass jar to make and store the paste in, and you will need some plastic wrap.
    Here is the link to Amazon which has the cheapest price for the primer.

    Wear a gas mask when working with the 3M tape primer 94 or melting TPE. Work in a well-ventilated area.  

    You will need to cut up the TPE into very small pieces. place it and some of the primer into a jar (just enough primer to cover the TPE pieces). It will need to set for a day or so the primer can melt the TPE down into paste, add more primer if needed, but if you put too much in just leave the jar open for a while and some of the primer will evaporate off. You want the paste to be the consistency of thick honey.

    When the paste is done, the first thing is to clean the wound with alcohol and get out any debris and dirt. Fill in wound with the paste. When you have the wound filled in smooth it out as much as possible then cover it with the plastic wrap and let it sit for a couple of days to set.

    Clean the areas again before starting on the heating process, then spray or pour on a thick coat of oil, it will keep the TPE from burning, you just want it to melt a bit to smooth out the wound. This is where you use the spoon and torch. You will heat the spoon with the torch, then lightly and gently use the heated part of the spoon to smooth out the TPE. This takes a bit of finesse and you may just dab the spoon over the wound until you can see how it reacts. Use alcohol to keep the spoon clean between heatings. You just want to smooth over the wound so do not press down with any force. After the TPE is cooled, cover it with plastic wrap and let it sit for another day.

    If you want to texture the skin in that area, before the TPE cools down you can use sand paper or a piece of nylon strap and just lightly press over the area and that will give it more of a skin texture. Once powdered it will barely be noticeable.
