I wouldn't bother for scratches that small, and I wouldn't use it for anything larger. The HDPE is never getting hot enough to melt too, so all you're doing is superficially filling it with a different type of plastic that will eventually come loose.

I couldn't agree more with Tom. There will be no lasting bond between HDPE and a different polymer (and we know it is very different because of how it melts in the video). And even if they were the same one would have to heat *both* of them above glass transition temperature to create an acceptable bond. So the whole video is pointless, imho.
