Bonding and welding

On some vehicle models, (such as the Ford Ka), bonding is combined with resistance spot welding.

This connection technique has the following advantages:

  • Tight, anti-corrosion connection seam.
  • High strength due to additional resistance weld  spots.

Please note the following points during the repair work:

  • Only use adhesive suitable for welding (conductive).
  • Carry out resistance spot welding on the connection flanges before the adhesive hardening process.
  • Carry out test welding with the adhesive applied.
  • If MIG welding is carried out during a sectional repair on a connecting flange with sealant or adhesive material, the material must be applied at a distance of approx. 10 mm from the weld spot.
  • These areas must be sealed very carefully after the work has been completed.
