Weld-Through Primer Guidelines: Subaru

Weld-Through Primer Guidelines: Subaru

Weld-through primers are generally a zinc-based product that is applied to the mating surfaces prior to welding. When the weld is performed, the zinc liquefies and flows into the weld-pool, protecting the weld from corrosion. Many OEMs have a position on when and how to use weld-through primer or when it shouldn’t be utilized. Let’s see what Subaru recommends and where this information can be found.

Subaru does not specify whether to or not to use weld-through primer in their body repair manuals.

Use the vehicle-specific body repair manuals to determine which type of welding is required for the repair you are performing. Failure to follow OEM procedures will sacrifice the safety and quality of the repair.
