Hybrid And Electric Vehicle Welding Best Practices

When welding on an HEV or EV, follow the same precautions as when welding on a conventional vehicle. In addition, there are precautions to take with the high-voltage battery. As a best practice, disconnect both the 12 V battery and the high-voltage battery service disconnect. (Note: Always disable the high-voltage battery following the vehicle makers repair information and follow all safety precautions.)

Refinish Precautions

"When a paint booth bake cycle is used at the body shop, be certain the maximum temperature of the bake cycle does not exceed 74°C (165°F) and must be for no longer than a 1 hour maximum. If the paint booth temperature is more than 74°C (165°F) have the Li-ion Battery removed from the vehicle by the certified Electric Vehicle dealer and then deliver the vehicle to body shop. Failure to remove the Li-ion Battery prior to subjecting it to temperatures above 74°C (165°F) could result in Li-ion Battery damage and shorter life. It is highly recommended that a non-conductive heat shield is placed on the battery pack to protect against potential heat, structural integrity or electrical damage."
