To meet the high expectations of even the most critical clients, VDL Nedcar has an ultramodern Paint Shop. Here, the untrimmed body shells arriving from the Body Shop are cleaned, degreased and coated with a primer to ensure perfect adhesion of the water-based top coat.
Using an electrophoretic primer coating process in which the entire body shell is immersed in primer, corrosion-protection coating is applied to even the smallest cavities and the inside walls of the steel box sections. The seams on the inside and outside of the body are sealed for extra protection, and bitumen mats are fixed inside body panels to counteract noise and vibration. In total, four coats of paint are applied to each car. Our Paint Shop naturally complies with the stringent requirements imposed by environmental legislation.
