NOTES ON SPRAYABLE JOINT SEALANT - AH97.10-P-0002-01A
All models
Application areas:
With this material, when applied over large surfaces on areas such as the wheelhouses, longitudinal members
(rocker panels) and vehicle floor elements, the characteristics are visually equivalent to the standard or plant
seals in terms of the processing.
When applying the material from the standard cartridge (300 ml), a special compressed air gun is required
which allows different types of application for structured joints, surface coatings, stone-impact protection and
sound deadening in combination with the associated plastic injection nozzles.
Processing:
Wet-in-wet painting possible between 30 min. and 8 h after application without paint additives. Forced
drying is necessary between 8 h and 72 h. Longer standing times should be avoided to exclude paint
adhesion losses.
Adhesion surfaces must be clean, dry and free of grease.
Spray filler/filler primer before application of sprayable joint sealing agent.
Never apply the sprayable joint sealing agent to fresh (unhardened) 1K polyurethane material.
Specific material advantages of "sprayable joint sealing agent":
Does not contain any isocyanates, silicone, PVCs and no dangerous agent.

The cavity preservation with wax already performed at the factory completes the corrosion prevention
measures.
No repetition of this preservation work is necessary.
Repair preservation
After accident repair spray cavities with wax in machined areas. When replacing detachable body components,
e.g. front fender, engine hood, doors, trunk lid as well as during welding, riveting and soldering work, also
perform repair preservation.
Always apply repair preservation agent twice with a drying time of 5 minutes in between.
After drying, ensure that drain holes are not plugged.
It is important that the wax preservation agent is applied following sealing and paintwork, however, before
assembly. Otherwise paint damage can occur or installation parts can be soiled with wax.
Also apply preservation agent to replacement bodies twice after they have been painted.
Replacement bodyshells top-coated in the factory have already been treated with the standard cavity
preservation.
Processing instructions
The processing temperature for the wax should not be less than +15 C

The cavities should be dry for preservation. Before starting preservation work, check spray pattern of spraying
hose or spray can.
The wax must spray uniformly from the openings in a circular pattern.
Particularly advantageous are nozzles which spray toward the front as well as at an angle toward the rear.
The spraying hose of the hand-held lance must be "stiff". Hoses that tend to roll up are not suitable.
When preserving, insert spraying hose as far as possible to all sides in the hollow cavities. Spray while slowly
inserting and pulling out hose.
Clean spray nozzle and spray hose together with spray equipment.

Repair damage on underbody protection as well as paint damage on door bottom edges, wheelhouse edges
and entrance.
Preserve underbody in area to be repaired following accident repair. Replacement body shells must have their
underbodies preserved when the vehicle is fully assembled.
The underside of the vehicle is to be cleaned before waxing. Spray the preservation wax on the dry underbody.
Do not spray following parts with preservation wax and cover if possible to prevent damage and extensive
cleaning work:
Brake linings and brake discs
Exhaust pipes and mufflers
Propeller shafts

The frame floor is coated with PVC permanent underbody protection as standard, see "Paintwork and Corrosion
Protection Manual". PVC is used as a standard material for sealing work in areas such as spot welds, door folds.

When PVC materials burn, they release a highly corrosive hydrochloric acid.
The new underbody protection agent does not adhere well to the burned PVC allowing rust to form later.
For this reason, always remove PVC underbody protection as well as PVC joint seals before starting any
brazing or welding work.
This also applies for work such as cutting or grinding
For the same reasons, it is preferable to separate damaged body parts using "cold" separating methods.
Notes on transportation sheeting - AH97.20-P-9409-03A
Model 129, 163, 164, 168, 169, 170, 171, 202, 203, 204, 208, 209, 210, 211, 215, 216, 219, 220, 221, 230, 240,

Since 1 J uly 1995, the exterior surface preservation has been eliminated on all vehicle models with code (524)
Paint protection. Instead, a protective sheeting is applied to the following surfaces on the vehicle in the factory:
Horizontal surfaces (engine hood, roof, trunk lid)
Front and rear fenders
Front and rear doors on driver's side
Outside mirror housings
Bumper (with code (494) USA version)
In general, the transport foil remains on the painted exterior surface until the vehicle is prepared for sale
Remove transport foil 24 h before preparing for sale.
Time transport foil remains on vehicle.
The time the foil remains on the vehicle is limited to 180 days (new). The sheeting therefore carries a label on
the engine hood which specifies the latest removal date for the sheeting. After expiration date, it is necessary to
remove the foil by pulling off of the vehicle.
Removal of transport foil
In exceptional cases (transport foil missing or damaged, useful life expired or paintwork rectification
necessary), the entire vehicle or portions of the originally protected surfaces must be re-covered with transport
foil. To do this, the old sheeting and adhesive tape must be pulled off by hand.
If the temperature is too high (>50C), adhesive residues may be left behind on the painted surfaces.
On icy vehicles the foil can tear when removing due to the effect of ice and snow.
Snow and ice residues can be thawed by heating up the surface temperature of the vehicle in a heated hall or
with the help of a hot air gun.

Heating also makes it easier to remove stubborn tape/adhesive residues.
Heat sources and cleaning fluid must not be used simultaneously.
In rare cases, localized swellings of the paintwork may be visible after the sheeting is removed. However,
this corrects itself within a few days.
Disposal of transport foil
The transport foil, the safety adhesive tape and the label for marking the expiration date consist of polyolefin
materials (PE/PP).
Dispose of separated foil waste properly. Observe legal regulations applicable in country.
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
RISK OF EXPLOSION, POISONING AND RISK OF INJURY - AS97.00-Z-0001-01A
Never spray anticorrosion agents on flames or glowing hot objects and keep them well away from all
potential sources of ignition. Use them only in well-ventilated rooms; wear respiratory protection.
Potential risks
Risk of explosion
The solvents contained in anticorrosion agents (such as underfloor protective coatings, cavity wax, engine
compartment wax) are flammable, and may burst into flame if sprayed onto glowing hot components or open
flames.
Risk of poisoning
Inhaling spray and solvent vapors can lead to damage of the respiratory system and lungs. Symptoms of
poisoning include headache, breathing difficulty, nausea and loss of consciousness.
Underfloor protective coating materials further pose the following risks:
Risk of damage to liver and kidneys.
Central nervous system disorders, loss of consciousness.
When these substances burn they produce toxic gases with a noxious odor; these gases are dangerous in
high concentrations.
Risk of injury
If anticorrosion coatings come in contact with the eyes they can cause severe eye damage.
In the event of frequent or prolonged contact with the skin, these substances can drain the skin of natural oils

and lead to inflammation.
Safety instructions/precautions
Always remove all PVC undercoating and PVC seam sealer from the areas to be treated before
performing any welding or soldering. This also applies for work such as cutting, sanding or similar work.
When removing damaged bodywork sections use "cold" separating methods when possible. With these
methods, smoke and toxic fumes are avoided.
Do not expose containers to direct sunlight or to temperatures in excess of 50C.
Always apply at the prescribed pressure.
Never spray corrosion inhibitor into flames or onto hot objects; keep well away from sparks and all
potential sources of ignition, and do not smoke.
Take precautions to avoid sparks from electrostatic discharge.
Avoid all contact with eyes and skin.
Wear tight-fitting safety glasses and solvent-resistant gloves.
Wear respiratory protection and apply only in well ventilated areas.
If clothing becomes soaked or contaminated, remove and wash it immediately.
Keep well away from food and drinks.
Seal containers tightly and store them in a well-ventilated area.
First aid measures
In case of eye contact
Flush thoroughly with water and consult a physician (eye doctor) immediately.
In case of ingestion
Give medicinal activated charcoal, do not induce vomiting, consult a physician immediately.
In case of inhalation
Move victim to fresh air, have victim lie down and remain calm, avoid strenuous activity.
In case of skin contact
Immediately wash with soap and water, apply protective skin ointment.
Fire protection measures
Rescue, extinguishing and cleanup operations in areas contaminated by fumes should only be undertaken by
individuals wearing respiratory protection. Do not inhale fumes from flames or explosions.

TESTING & REPAIR
PROCESSING OF BODY SEALANT (PAINTABLE) BEFORE PAINTING - AR97.10-P-0500-02A
1. Carefully clean affected body parts.
2. Apply body sealant uniformly.
3. Spread body sealant evenly.
4. Maintain drying time for overpainting.
When replacing sheet attached parts (doors, trunk lid, etc.) and also body parts welded in place, carefully
seal the folds and openings with body sealant in order to avoid corrosion and leaks. The spot weld seams and
the rivets must be sealed on both sides.
The brushes, wooden spatulas, etc. used to spread the body sealant should generally be cleaned only with
pure benzine. If these objects are cleaned with paint thinner or other alcoholic liquids before applying the body
sealant, the sealant does not cure and remains sticky.

Processing instructions for cavity preservation agent - AP97.20-P-0640-01A
The cavity preservation with wax already performed at the factory completes the corrosion prevention
measures.
No repetition of this preservation work is necessary.
Repair preservation
Following accident repairs, spray hollow cavities with wax in the repaired area. When replacing detachable
body components, e.g. front fender, engine hood, doors, trunk lid as well as during welding, riveting and
soldering work, also perform repair preservation.
Always apply two coats of repair preservation agent, one after another with an air drying time of 5 min. in
between.
After drying, ensure that drain holes are not plugged.
It is important that the wax preservation agent is applied following sealing and paintwork, however, before
assembly. Otherwise painting defects can occur or attached parts may be contaminated with wax.
It is also necessary to preserve replacement bodies twice after painting.
Replacement bodyshells top-coated in the factory have already been treated with the standard cavity
preservation.
Working instructions
The cavities must be dry before preserving. Before commencing preservation work, check the spray pattern
from the spraying hose or spray can. The wax must spray uniformly from the openings in a circular pattern.
Particularly advantageous are nozzles which spray toward the front as well as at an angle toward the rear.
The spraying hose of the hand-held lance must be "stiff". Hoses that tend to roll up are not suitable.
When preserving, insert spraying hose as far as possible to all sides in the hollow cavities. Spray while slowly
inserting and retracting the hose (processing temperature not below +15C). Clean spray nozzle and spray hose
together with spray equipment.
