Bodywork description

The workshop specializes in car body repair and surface preparation for painting. Bodywork repairs in the three basic works of the section: welding and fabrication of parts, repair of exterior trim parts and their adaptation to the body, treatment of car body surfaces and corners according to the level of painting.

Welding usually takes one to four months. In turn, car surface preparation work usually takes from two to six weeks. If necessary, new body parts are manufactured if their production costs are lower than the costs of purchasing and installing new parts. Often new body parts are not available at all.

 Until the car is disassembled and its paint cleaned, most of the damage is not visible. Often car owners get the misconception that there are only a few rust-affected areas.

 Many years of experience indicate that if corrosion has already become visible then a general and extensive body repair will be required.

 Generally, the complexity of the work can be divided into the following groups according to the amount of work required for repairs: cars without visual serious defects, cars with visible corrosion, cars with visible corrosion and previously suffered in a traffic accident, cars whose restoration has already been started in another workshop but has not been successful.

  The rusty body fragments are carefully cut out and copies of the cut-out fragments are made - prostheses. The prostheses are carefully adjusted to the cut-out fragment in the body and its geometry corresponds to the body.

 During the body restoration we ensure safety of the original manufacturer's design replacing damaged panels with new ones or replacing each damaged component individually.

 Upon restoration of individual components, the authentic form is accurately reproduced providing both visual and functional conformity. After opening those normally inaccessible cavities and tubular structures, these are cleaned and covered with a protective coat.

 A rust protective coat is also laid on all new components forming closed cavities.

  To ensure an exact match of the original surface shape, the surface to be restored is tinned.

After completion of welding and prior to painting, all related components are fitted to be sure in parts compatibility and accuracy of their inter- arrangement. The accuracy of gaps around opening components is verified as well as location and conformity of position of decorative elements.

As an additional car protection against rust we offer body coated with hot zinc. The essence of the technology is as follows: The molten zinc is atomized with compressed air to create a spray stream that applies the coating onto the car body`s surface being sprayed. Anti-corrosion zinc coating is applied with oxy-propane system.

The best body protection is provided by KTL coating, but it is also the most expensive coating offered by our workshop. The E-coating process (electrophoretic dip coating) ensures a perfect coating quality and it ensures the best corrosion protection. After pre-treatment the car body will be moved into the EC (KTL) tank. The coating will adhere on the part surface in an electromechanical way. Parts to be treated are dipped during the EC dip-coating process in waterborne paint with low solids content. Under the DC voltage field between part and counter electrode, solid parts in the EC bath will be separated on the part. Extra smooth paint coating layer arises with excellent sticking on the edge and other places.
