How does it work?
The Scratch Cover © fork stanchion scratch repair kit includes all the accessories you need to repair your fork stanchion without any other tools, and whether you are at home or on the go (travelling or during competitions).
The repair is carried out in 4 stages:
What aesthetic result to expect?
Because no two scratches are alike, no two results are equivalent.
The priority of Scratch Cover is to make the stanchion smooth again to prolong the operation of the fork.
The aesthetic result is more random, it will largely depend on the depth of the scratches: the deeper a scratch, the easier it is to fill it with resin, the more the scratch is on the surface, the more difficult it will be to conceal it because the black coating is extremely thin.
In most cases, Scratch Cover will not make your stanchion like brand new.
Works for all stanchions
Scratch Cover can be used on all the stanchions : Fork, dropper post, rear air shock. Tools and process are similar for all of them.
Available in 2 colors
Scratch Cover is available in black or transparent resin.
To repair your fork stanchion, you only need a cloth, some chain oil and a little water.
Obviously it is easier to disassemble the faulty part so you can work on it more easily.

Why does it take 6 to 8 hours to dry?
We use a high strength epoxy resin. This resin is a thermosetting liquid polymer. Its drying time can vary from 6 to 8 hours depending on the ambient temperature and humidity. Make sure to mix the 2 liquids for at least 3 minutes, this step is key so that the resin dries completely within the announced time.
Shouldn't I replace my fork stanchion after a knock?
If it''s only a surface knock, you don''t need to replace the fork stanchion. The most important thing is to repair it as soon as you can after the knock so the seals don''t get damaged.
Is there a specific version for Kashima © coating stanchion?
There is currently no gold version for Kashima stanchions. We recommend using transparent resin.
The kit is complete with easy to follow instructions but it requires meticulousness and a little time. Do not put in too much resin as it takes time to remove excess resin with fine sandpaper.
The result is very satisfying, you don't feel the scratch anymore and you hardly see it. The repair seems to hold well. Highly recommanded for all DIYers
