Notes on sprayable joint sealant
All models
Application areas:
With this material, when applied over large surfaces on areas such as the wheelhouses, longitudinal members (rocker
panels) and vehicle floor elements, the characteristics are visually equivalent to the standard or plant seals in terms of the
processing.
When applying the material from the standard cartridge (300 ml), a special compressed air gun is required which allows
different types of application for structured joints, surface coatings, stone-impact protection and sound deadening in
combination with the associated plastic injection nozzles.
Processing:
Wet-in-wet painting possible between 30 min. and 8 h after
application without paint additives. Forced drying is necessary between 8 h and 72 h. Longer standing times should be
avoided to exclude paint adhesion losses.
Adhesion surfaces must be clean, dry and free of grease.
Spray filler/filler primer before application of
sprayable joint sealing agent.
Never apply the sprayable joint sealing agent to fresh
(unhardened) 1K polyurethane material.
Specific material advantages of "sprayable joint sealing agent":
Does not contain any isocyanates, silicone, PVCs and no dangerous agent.
The replaceable nozzle makes cleaning unnecessary.
Visual repair of the plant seals and
underbody coating.
Good stability.
Return to Index
UV-resistant.
Material offers a number of application possibilities.
With the proper gun setting, the sprayable
joint seal can be applied as joint seal and surface coating in sequence.
It is necessary, however, to wait for the end of the skin formation period of about 15 min. for the sprayed seam.
Can be painted over well.
Notes on processing permanent underbody protection
The frame floor is protected by permanent PVC underbody protection as standard feature (see Manual "Paintwork and
Corrosion Protection"). PVC material is also used in mass production for sealing work, e.g. for spot welded joints, door
joints, etc.
When PVC material burns, strong corrosive hydrochloric acid is formed.
The new permanent underfloor protection can only be applied poorly to burned PVC material resulting in later sub-surface
corrosion.
For this reason, always remove PVC underbody protection as well as PVC joint seals before starting any brazing or
welding work. This also applies for work such as cutting, grinding, etc.
For these reasons, "cold" cutting methods should be preferred when cutting away damaged body panels.

Notes on straightening and welding work on shock absorber strut mount
Model 903,904 on all wheel-drive vehicles.
For control and straightening work on the original all-wheel drive spring strut mount use spring strut console for all-wheel
drive vehicles.
For installing new spring strut mounts use spring strut mount for standard vehicles at the corresponding vehicle side,
because there are no special all-wheel drive body parts for the spring strut mount with the corresponding inclination.
After installing position spring strut mounts to the correct position for all-wheel drive vehicles with pulling device.
Example: Vehicles with accident damage on the left side. Replace floor element and left spring strut mount.
On the right side use the spring strut console for all-wheel drive and on the left side install the spring strut console for
standard vehicles for welding in new parts.
Before installing components (engine, front axle) pull left spring strut mount to correct inclination angle with a special
pulling device.

HISTORY OF COLLISION REPAIR
Time was, if you had an accident, the call went out to the insurance company - to the collision shop - or several shops get the lowest bid and in no time at all, the vehicle was repaired.
The facilities, training, and equipment were simple. Use a torch to cut, shape, and bend. Use something substantial as
an anchoring point - maybe a tree and then just pull.
Use plenty of solder or body putty to make it look good. With the frame and body vehicle, the job was easy; first
straighten the frame - then fix the mechanical components and the body work was cosmetic. This was all well and good
until the mid - '70s.
Then, the designers, engineers, and manufacturers had to find ways to make the vehicles energy efficient - and that
meant unibody cars. The unibody concept wasn't new - back in the '30s the Chrysler Air Flow had it - race cars have it and now the driving public worldwide has it.
The change came quickly. Manufacturers devoted time, money, and talent to delvelop the unibody car.
The public was ready to buy and did!
But then came the problem! The collision repair industry wasn't given the luxury of taking their time to train people in the
new technology - or take time to plan for new equipment.
The collision happened and the vehicle had to be fixed. Cars that were repairable were being totalled.
Cars that were repaired were not repaired correctly. Everybody was in a quandary - auto manufacturer - insurance
company - repair equipment people - body shops - and repair technicians.
The problem started in the early '70s and body shops are still catching up today. Yesterday's "ding" is today's "crash". It
takes trained technicians and sophisticated equipment to do the repair today.
That's why DaimlerChrysler is taking the time and effort to get the right information into the hands of the people that
handle the repair job.

Corrosion Protection

Corrosion Protection
Factory Applied Corrosion Protection
During the manufacturing of the unibody car, the manufacturer applies "corrosion protection" using specialized
manufacturing processes. This system is not duplicated in the collision repair body shop. However, the body shop still
has a responsibility to apply corrosion protection to the unibody vehicle. So, the collision repair shop must use
alternative materials to do the corrosion protection job after the repair.
This corrosion protection is required regardless of the environment and weather conditions the vehicle will be operated
in. Corrosion protection is as important in the desert as it is at the seaside. Corrosion damage can literally destroy the
structural integrity of a unibody vehicle from within. Many corrosion protection systems are destroyed during collision
repair operations. Metal finishing, metal working and fatigue can cause the breakdown of many of the corrosion barriers
installed at the factory. The use of heat for stress relief and welding also destroys factory installed corrosion barriers.
These corrosion barriers and corrosion protection systems must be replaced after collision repair to ensure that the
structural integrity of the unibody will remain intact throughout its life. In the past, only vehicles with aftermarket or afterdelivery corrosion protection systems installed were serviced after collision repair to restore the corrosion protection
system.
An understanding of the types of corrosion which affect the unibody vehicles will assist in understanding why the factory
protection systems are important, how the factory protection systems consist of and how the systems' protection is
replaced after collision and electrolytic corrosion. Some of the more common types of corrosion are crevice corrosion,
pitting, galvanic corrosion, stress corrosion, cracking, fretting, and erosion corrosion.
Back to Index
Corrosion Protection
Back to Index
Crevice corrosion
Crevice corrosion is a form of localized attack that occurs in areas on metal surfaces exposed to the elements.
Examples include spot weld lap joints, threaded or riveted connections, gasket fittings, porous welds, valve seats.
Pitting
Pitting is the corrosion of a metal surface at points or small areas which look like a small hole in the metal.
Galvanic corrosion
Galvanic corrosion is the type that occurs when dissimilar metals are in electrical contact while immersed in an
electrolyte.
Corrosion Protection
The penetration of corrosive solutions into these small areas, with widths that are typically a few thousandths of an inch,
can result in various types of failures: the metal surface may become rusty in appearance, operating components may
seize when protective coatings may have been removed from the metal surface. The coating of zinc on steel, known as
galvanized, is an example of sacrificial cathodic protection.
An example of galvanic corrosion on the automobile is a stainless steel trim molding on a painted mild steel. When the
paint becomes damaged, a galvanic corrosion cell is formed between the passive stainless steel (cathode) and the steel
(anode). The corrosion leads to what would look like a rust stain. Methods of reducing galvanic corrosion include the
use of compatible materials, minimizing of cathode-to-anode areas, the insulation of dissimilar metal contacts and the
use of thick, replaceable sections.
Stress corrosion, cracking, fretting, and erosion corrosion.
Corrosion cracking is the early cracking of metals produced by the combined action of tensile stress and a corrosive
atmosphere.
Corrosion fatigue is cracking due to the action of stresses and corrosion. Methods of reducing corrosion fatigue include
the reduction in stress and the use of coatings.
Fretting is the deterioration of a metal at contact surfaces due to the presence of a corrosive and relative motion
between the surfaces. The two metal surfaces initially are covered with an oxide film that becomes abraded during
vibration. The results are oxide particles that become corroded. During the collision repair process, the factory
protection materials become damaged from working the metals, or from the use of heat in the repair operations. If
these factory protection materials are not replaced with some similar protection material after repair, a corrosion hot
spot is formed. A corrosion hot spot is a small unprotected area surrounded by a protected area throughout the rest of
the vehicle. the hot spot effect causes rapid deterioration of the unprotected area. This deterioration takes place at a
much faster rate, sometimes 10-12 times faster than if the entire car were unprotected. The hot spot effect is created
because all the corrosive factors are channeled to the unprotected area much the same way all material flowing through
a funnel is concentrated in a small area. This hot spot effect means that corrosion failures to the unibody structure
could occur in a short period of time even in an atmosphere normally not subject to corrosion. The hot spot effect can
cause rapid deterioration of unibody structures from corrosion damage in a desert as well as seaside.
Back to Index
Corrosion Protection
The types of materials used in rustproofing application include oil based materials, wax base materials, primers and
color coats. The most important properties of rustproofing materials are adhesion, toughness, and the resistance to the
environment. The best coating in the world is not effective unless it is present in the right place at the right time.
Corrosion Protection Information
When making the collision repair, refer to the manufacturer's information on where corrosion protection and sealants are
applied. Be sure to follow the recommendations. The application process is usually included with the material
manufacturer's information so be sure to read and understand it before proceeding with the repair.
Collision Repair Corrosion Protection Materials
The materials must provide good electrolyte barriers. The material must also be able to penetrate tiny crevices and
prevent abrasive corrosion. The material must be compatible with paint systems as many areas of the car must be
treated before paint is applied.
Materials containing silicones will cause paint conditions such as fish eyes if they are applied before the repaired vehicle
is painted. So no silicone containing material is to be used. As many of the repair areas are more accessible before
final assembly and painting, the non-silicone type materials are a must for this type of application.
When protecting an enclosed area, fog type properties for the corrosion protection material are a plus. The fog
properties make the material much less susceptible to operator error or misapplication. With a fog type material, once
the material is introduced inside of an enclosure, the fog spreads rapidly and evenly into all areas including tiny
crevices. The fog type materials do not require direct spray application to be effective. Fog type materials are also very
effective in coating over any existing rusted or corrosion damaged areas and preventing further corrosion of these
areas. This is especially important on repairs of older vehicles.
Back to Index
Corrosion Protection
Spray Accessibility to the Repair
Being able to achieve fog spray penetration into enclosed cavities as well as open areas requires application equipment,
which includes an assortment of wands of various lengths and design.
Some areas are more effectively treated by brush application of corrosion protection material before they are
assembled. A good example of this is an inner and outer engine compartment side rail area. Brush application to the
inside of these areas as individual pieces is easy before assembly and can be followed by a light fog application to the
weld areas and the crevices formed during assembly after the rails are assembled. Brush application keeps the foreign
material from getting between welded joints during assembly yet gives good coverage to general areas with easy
application. The material selected in addition to paint compatibility features and fog application features is also an
excellent brush application material. Repaired areas, boxed in or closed in are more easily treated during assembly
using fog and brush on techniques. Care must be taken to keep the corrosion materials away from the welding areas as
welding contamination might take place. Brush-on applications are used before welding and fog in applications are
used after welding assemblies together.

Corrosion Protection
Desired Characteristics of Corrosion Protection Material
1. Corrosion prevention material- The material must displace water to prevent corrosion. This can be tested by
spraying water on an open panel on the floor, then spraying the corrosion preventative material over the watered panel
and observing if the material displaces the water.
2. Creepage of material- To insure thorough and complete protection coverage, the material should have a "creep"
capability, approximately 1/4 inch per minute while drying. This assures protective penetration of pinch welds, cracks,
etc.
3. Safe material- Material should be non-combustible when dried and when wet unable to support a fire after ignition.
4. Clean-up- The material should be of a viscosity which inhibits runs or drips. Overspray on a vehicle's painted surface
should wipe off easily without solvent when wet, with solvent when dry. The material should also dry clean off clothing.
5. Guarantee/Warranty- The corrosion protection has to be done to maintain factory corrosion warranty.
Manufacturer's recommendations must be followed.

Danger!
Risk of explosion and poisoning.. Solvent vapors and fumes are explosive and toxic.
Risk of injury. Working with anticorrosion agents may result in eye and skin injuries.
Never spray anticorrosion agents on flames or glowing hot objects and keep them well away from all potential sources of
ignition. Process in well-ventilated rooms, wear respiratory protection.
Risk of explosion and poisoning caused by solvent vapors and gasses.
Risk of injury to skin and eyes when handling anticorrosion agents.
Never spray anticorrosion agents on flames or glowing hot objects and keep them well away from all potential sources of
ignition. Use them only in well-ventilated rooms; wear respiratory protection.
Danger!
Potential risks
Risk of explosion
The solvents contained in anticorrosion agents (such as underfloor protective coatings, cavity wax, engine compartment
wax, etc.) are flammable, and may burst into flame if sprayed onto glowing hot components or open flames.
Risk of poisoning
Inhaling spray and solvent vapors can lead to damage of the respiratory system and lungs. Symptoms of poisoning
include headache, breathing difficulty, nausea and loss of consciousness.
Underfloor protective coating materials further pose the following risks:
- Risk of damage to liver and kidneys.
- Central nervous system disorders, loss of consciousness.
- When these substances burn they produce toxic gases with a noxious odor; these gases are dangerous in high
concentrations.
Return To Index
Risk of injury
If anticorrosion coatings come in contact with the eyes they can cause severe eye damage.
In the event of frequent or prolonged contact with the skin, these substances can drain the skin of natural oils and lead to
inflammation.
Safety instructions/precautions
- Always remove all PVC underfloor protective coatings and PVC seam sealers from the areas to be treated before
performing any welding or soldering work. This also applies for work such as cutting, sanding or similar work.
- When removing damaged bodywork sections use "cold" separating methods where possible. With these methods,
smoke and toxic fumes are avoided.
- Do not expose containers to direct sunlight or to temperatures in excess of 50 °C.
- Always apply at the specified pressure.
- Do not spray anticorrosion agents on flames or glowing hot objects and keep them well away from all potential sources
of ignition, do not smoke.
- Take precautions to avoid sparks from electrostatic discharge.
- Avoid all contact with eyes and skin.
- Wear tight-fitting safety glasses and solvent-resistant gloves.
- Wear respiratory protection and apply only in well ventilated areas.
- If clothing becomes soiled or soaked, remove and wash them immediately.
- Keep substances well away from food and beverages.
- Seal containers tightly and store them in a well-ventilated area.
First aid measures
In case of eye contact
Flush thoroughly with water and consult a physician (eye doctor) immediately.
In case of ingestion
Give medicinal activated charcoal, do not induce vomiting, consult a physician immediately.
In case of inhalation
Move victim to fresh air, have victim lie down and remain calm, avoid strenuous activity.
Return To Index
In case of contact with the skin
Immediately wash with soap and water, apply protective skin ointment.
Fire protection measures
Rescue, extinguishing and cleanup operations in areas contaminated by fumes should only be undertaken by individuals
wearing respiratory protection. Do not inhale fumes from flames or explosions.
Suitable extinguishing agents:
- Water mist spray
- Foam
- Extinguishing powder
- Carbon dioxide
Non-suitable extinguishing agents:
- Direct water spray
Notes on sprayable joint sealant
All models
Application areas:
With this material, when applied over large surfaces on areas such as the wheelhouses, longitudinal members (rocker
panels) and vehicle floor elements, the characteristics are visually equivalent to the standard or plant seals in terms of the
processing.
When applying the material from the standard cartridge (300 ml), a special compressed air gun is required which allows
different types of application for structured joints, surface coatings, stone-impact protection and sound deadening in
combination with the associated plastic injection nozzles.
Processing:
Wet-in-wet painting possible between 30 min. and 8 h after
application without paint additives. Forced drying is necessary between 8 h and 72 h. Longer standing times should be
avoided to exclude paint adhesion losses.
Adhesion surfaces must be clean, dry and free of grease.
Return To Index
Spray filler/filler primer before application of
sprayable joint sealing agent.
Never apply the sprayable joint sealing agent to fresh
(unhardened) 1K polyurethane material.
Specific material advantages of "sprayable joint sealing agent":
Does not contain any isocyanates, silicone, PVCs and no dangerous agent.
The replaceable nozzle makes cleaning unnecessary.
Visual repair of the plant seals and
underbody coating.
Good stability.
UV-resistant.
Material offers a number of application possibilities.
With the proper gun setting, the sprayable
joint seal can be applied as joint seal and surface coating in sequence.
It is necessary, however, to wait for the end of the skin formation period of about 15 min. for the sprayed seam.
Can be painted over well.
Sealing
After performing body repair seal welds on both sides.
Processing of corrosion protection materials before painting
Notes on processing permanent underbody protection
The frame floor is protected by permanent PVC underbody protection as standard feature (see Manual "Paintwork and
Corrosion Protection"). PVC material is also used in mass production for sealing work, e.g. for spot welded joints, door
joints, etc.
When PVC material burns, strong corrosive hydrochloric acid is formed.
Return To Index
The new permanent under floor protection can only be applied poorly to burned PVC material resulting in later subsurface corrosion.
For this reason, always remove PVC underbody protection as well as PVC joint seals before starting any brazing or
welding work. This also applies for work such as cutting, grinding, etc.
For these reasons, "cold" cutting methods should be preferred when cutting away damaged body panels.
Application of body sealant (paintable) before painting
For sealing plans see paint and corrosion protection manual.
Processing body sealant (paintable) before painting
When replacing sheet attached parts (doors, trunk lid, etc.) and also body parts welded in place, carefully seal the folds
and openings with body sealant in order to avoid corrosion and leaks. Seal spot weld seams and rivets on both sides.
Observe the following procedure:
1 Carefully clean affected body parts.
2 Apply sealant uniformly.
3 Spread body sealant evenly.
4 Maintain drying time for overpainting.
The brushes, wooden spatulas, etc. used to spread the body sealant should generally be cleaned only with pure benzine.
If these objects are cleaned with paint thinner or other alcoholic liquids before applying the body sealant the sealant does
not cure and remains sticky.
Return To Index
Processing zinc dust paint before painting
Do not use for painting outer surface.
Observe the following procedure when processing:
Carefully clean affected body parts. All bare sheet metal parts must be completely clean and free of rust, oil and wax.
Uniformly apply zinc dust paint with brush or flow cup spray gun.
Maintain drying time for overpainting.
Zinc dust paint serves for preventing corrosion on welding seams, sheet metal contact points and surfaces, which cannot
be painted or are difficult to paint following assembly.
Do not use for painting outer surface.
All bare sheet metal parts must be completely clean and free of rust, oil and wax.
Processing permanent underbody protection for painting
Observe following procedure when processing:
All areas to which permanent underbody protection is to be applied must be thoroughly cleaned (steam cleaner). In
particular, remove wax and oil residues as well as loose pieces of PVC thoroughly. Grind corroded points down to bare
metal and prime.
A hot air gun and flat nozzle with integrated scraper or rotating wire brushes are suitable for removing the PVC material.
Apply permanent underbody protection uniformly with spray gun.
Do not spray permanent under floor protection on equipment, otherwise, the function could be impaired.
Maintain drying time for overpainting.

Permanent underbody protection (synthetic rubber), dark gray:
The permanent underbody protection is designed on a synthetic rubber basis and is suited for processing fender bottom
sections, underbody as well as transitions to original standard PVC underbody protection.
Not suited for sealing work (seam sealing). Blow through spray gun with solvent after use. Clear air hole on screw-in
thread.
Permanent under floor protection (water-base dispersion), gray
The permanent under floor protection is a water-base dispersion suitable for application to the underbody, fender bottom
sections and exterior surface. For processing on the outer surface (e.g. front fender below bumper, longitudinal members
at entry) thin material with 5 % water to achieve better coverage.
This permanent under floor protection is not suitable for transitions to original standard PVC under floor protection or for
sealing work (insufficient adhesion and formation of cracks). After completion of work, clean tools thoroughly with water.
Before reuse moisten air flap with mineral oil so that spray fog does not dry on.
Sealant
Corrosion protection
Do not apply sealing agent on bare metal, prime welds, etc. first
Detachable body components
When replacing detachable body components such as doors, engine hood, rear doors etc. also seam welds and beads.
Separation points
In some cases various sealing measures may be required at points not illustrated depending on the scope of repair.

Notes on hollow cavity preservation
The cavity preservation with wax already performed at the factory completes the corrosion prevention measures.
No repetition of this preservation work is necessary.
On vehicles on which repairs to the sheet metal parts have been accomplished, repair preservation is required. As a
matter of principle, apply two coats of repair preservation agent one after another with an air drying time of 5 min. in
between.
It is also necessary to preserve replacement bodies twice after painting.
Replacement body shells top-coated in the factory have already been treated with the standard cavity preservation.
Processing instructions for hollow cavity preservation
The cavity preservation with wax already performed at the factory completes the corrosion prevention measures.
No repetition of this preservation work is necessary.
Repair preservation
Following accident repairs, spray hollow cavities with wax in the repaired area. When replacing detachable body
components, e.g. front fender, engine hood, doors, trunk lid as well as during welding, riveting and soldering work, also
perform repair preservation.
Always apply two coats of repair preservation agent, one after another with an air drying time of 5 min in between.
After drying, ensure that drain holes are not plugged.
It is important that the wax preservation agent is applied following sealing and paintwork, however, before assembly.
Otherwise painting defects can occur or attached parts may be contaminated with wax.

Working instructions
The cavities must be dry before preserving. Before commencing preservation work, check the spray pattern from the
spraying hose or spray can. The wax must spray uniformly from the openings in a circular pattern.
Particularly advantageous are nozzles which spray toward the front as well as at an angle toward the rear.
The spraying hose of the hand-held lance must be "stiff". Hoses that tend to roll up are not suitable.
When preserving, insert the spraying hose into the cavities in all directions as far as possible.
Spray while slowly inserting and retracting the hose (processing temperature not below +15 °C).
Clean spray nozzle and spray hose together with spray equipment.
Apply wax preservation agent in shaded areas following sealing and paintwork, however, before performing assembly
work
Move spraying hose into hollow cavities as far as possible and slowly pull out hose while spraying
Apply repair preservation agent twice with a drying time of 5 minutes in between.
The spraying hose should be stiff and the nozzles should spray at angle to the front and rear. The hollow cavities should
be dry.
Ensure that the drain holes are not plugged following drying
The processing temperature should not be below + 15 °C
Additional preservation measures may be required depending on the repair area deviating from the standard hollow cavity
preservation illustrated.
