Protection of the vehicle

Protect affected areas from weld spatter and dust during all welding and grinding work on the vehicle.

If metallic dust stays on the vehicle for some time, there is the likelihood of film rust formation.

Grinding or sanding work produce tiny spots of damage to the paint surface, which may cause corrosion.

For this reason, make sure to:

  • Use carbon fibre blankets to protect the vehicle body
  • Use covering film to protect the vehicle body from sanding dust and metal dust.
  • Take appropriate measures to protect the interior equipment of the vehicle during any repair work.

In addition, take into account:

  • Remove fuel supply components as necessary.
  • Protect working areas which are in danger of catching fire with a fireproof blanket.
  • The welding must not cause components of the air conditioning system to become heated.
  • Removal of any attached components in the space adjoining the repair area.
  • Use covering paper to protect the interior from grinding dust.
  • Create a definite barrier between the work area and the interior by using a carbon fibre blanket.

Protective equipment

The following protective equipment must always be used:

  • Protective helmet or welding mask.
  • Ear defenders and breathing protection.
  • Protective gloves and safety boots
  • Welding fume extraction.
