Bodywork/the “body in white” must got to the coating without any grinding or rework if the aim is to efficiently secure optimum quality.
Hot metal spatter develops during spot welding, laser welding, MIG/MAG welding, and MIG soldering, etc. If not protected, this spatter burns into the sheet metal surface – in particular when welding galvanised sheet metal. This reduces the quality in visible areas or in areas relevant to assembly and also negatively influences corrosion protection.
Metallotion PROTEC CE15L+ provides protection and maintains the surface quality, thus preventing reworking.
The zinc layer is maintained and unproductive cleaning tasks become obsolete. Total process safety is guaranteed – from welding to cataphoresis/coating. The PROTEC fluid also equally protects during laser welding on aluminium sheets.
In car bodywork, PROTEC anti-spatter fluid mainly is used for protection of doors or body side parts/door entrances in laser welding processes or resistance welding processes.
The advantage of PROTEC anti-spatter fluids lies in its simple application and the strong protective qualities directly on the surface, even on complex structures.
The fluid is applied (up to three weeks) before welding. This is the only prerequisite to obtain reliable protection and other processes remain entirely unaffected. The PROTEC fluids can be applied manually or automatically. PROTEC team readily shares its professional expertise and offers consulting on effective and efficient application technology.
