WELDBONDING JOINS AUTO BODY SHEET

Fatigue life and long term corrosion resistance are better than with spot welding or mechanical fasteners alone. Manufacturers apply adhesive to the joint and spot weld through it, or mask the spot weld area with tape or film, apply the adhesive and then spot weld. Or, they can apply the adhesive after spot welding. Capillary action pulls the adhesive into the joint.
