Abstract : Specification covers a ready-mixed, single-package, epoxy-based, zinc-rich primer for use on ferrous metal surfaces prior to spot welding. It is intended for application at a dry film thickness between 2.0 and 3.0 mils on parts fabricated from sheet metal. It is usually applied to the parts prior to assembly and must not adversely affect spot or gas welding. Since this specification represents old technology no longer used in the automotive industry and the only submitted commercial sample at low volatile organic compound (VOC) failed the corrosion test, it is recommended that this specification be canceled along with its associated work unit.
