Corrosion Protection Guidelines: Jaguar Land Rover

A key factor in collision repair is making long-lasting repairs. When a vehicle is repaired, many areas of corrosion protection are disturbed. This creates corrosion hot spots that left untreated will lead to corrosion and potentially a repair failure. However, there are certain precautions that can be taken to safely and properly restore the corrosion protection throughout the repair process. OEMs often give specifications on restoring corrosion protection. These specifications generally include seam sealer, adhesives, foam fillers, and cavity waxes. Let’s take a look at what Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) says.

Information for corrosion protection can be found in the vehicle-specific body repair manuals, is typically found in document 501-25B: Body Repairs – Corrosion Protection or 501-25A: Body Repairs – General Information. Here you will find the list of approved products for restoring corrosion protection. There are many different products however, all of them are either 3M or Teroson.

There is also, information on when to apply corrosion protection and guidelines for application. You will also find, locations that certain corrosion protecting is used from the factory. JLR issues warnings such as, per the Jaguar body repair manual: “Do not use oxy-acetylene to remove corrosion prevention material. Large volumes of fumes and gases are liberated by these materials when they burn.”

Always follow OEM repair procedures for all repairs. Failure to follow corrosion protection guidelines can lead to premature failure on a repair. Using the proper corrosion protections will ensure a complete, safe, and quality repair.
