To get deeper into the weeds, use a bit baby oil to stop a bit the situation that the abrasion is getting stronger.

The Indigo 20 solvent "Smoother" from the repair kit is able to deal with small abrasions and works slowly.

We would recommend a rework station with heat gun.

Take a look at these 2 videos:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QHC0Y14eMBY

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vYk6NojMAqI

The area (the breasts) is prepared with mineral oil.
The used temperature is a bit too high (above 220°Celsius), you see the smoke and that the TPE becomes liquid very fast.
A temperature around 190-200°Celsius and more distance of the heat gun to the TPE surface is better, the smoothing effect is slowlier but more controled and without that heavy smoke.
There will always be a bit smoke.
That smoke is unhealthy.
It is necessary to have a permanent ventilation with fresh air or smoke extractor or a mask (half-mask) with filter against organic chemicals.

The second video shows at the end that the worker is using a fine fabric sheet.
Therewith he brings back the TPE surface structure, otherwise it would be smooth and shiny.
You can use a sand paper instead and press it on the hot TPE (I do that).

Rework stations only with heat gun are available at ebay for about $30 and rework stations with heat gun and temperature controlled soldering iron are about $50.
Love,
The BCD Girls

I might not even worry about it seems like a pain in the ass just for one spot that covered up most of the time.

Oh shit. You need acetone, rtv 4500 food grade silicone adhesive, toothpick to apply it and some cotton swabs or cotton pads to prep with acetone beforehand.


Cheers. Hard to track down acertone in small amounts as everything seems to be acetone free in makeup sections. And food grade silicon seems to be the same.
Would these do for the acetone?

You can get acetone from a chemist's shop but the product shown should be ok in my opinion.

Just a quick word about soldering stations, if you have a 'test' piece of TPE try it out on that first! You can damage the surface smoothness if you don't have the temperature and air flow right. I go to about 180C and lowish air flow but it does take practice! The best way I can describe it is that TPE is a bit like a mousse! It has a smooth surface but if you break the surface with heat it can get like the mousse when you put a spoon into it! So take care, as it can sort of crumble into globules! I have nearly had a disaster with trying to fix Ashaki! If you haven't got a test piece, try it out where it is not going to be noticeable first, like on the soul of her foot or back of the neck!

You can use George's method of heating a spoon with a kitchen blowtorch and drawing it over the rough spot. Clean the spoon between each rub. The surface will go smooth so put a little powder on the last rub.

Cheers, Hollows.

Acetone is not for tpe.

For tpe repair prep only, use isopropyl rubbing alcohol
