    Well, not quite yet, but our plastic shower tray has a few surface hairline cracks which I'd like to sort before they become a problem.

    I guess I could do with something that I can spread over thye cracked areas and then wipe off leaving the cracks filled - almost like a grout I suppose.

    Any ideas please?

    There are possibly things like Isopon, but I think you will find the problem comes from below the shower tray. Most do not seem to be supported correctly and the base can flex causeing cracking. Often better to take out and start again,:cry:supporting correctly.

    Well you got that bit right, but I doubt you'll cure it from above. The only sure way is to get it out, find why it's cracking and fix it underneath. Better support and a layer of fibreglass cloth/resin to seal it.

    I guess if you can't get it out then fibreglass cloth/resin on top and a load of hard work to get a nice finish.
