Can welding be done on a Fn/Zn 8 DIN 50961 plated tube?





July 13, 2010

After quotes were submitted to customer and letter of intent was provided as ward, we received drawings at new level. These levels includes zinc plating Fe/Zn 8 DIN 50961. There are tubes and brackets that will be welded on these tubes. My question is how welding is possible after the tube is zinc plated? After welding e-coat is applied.

BAD process. You will have a contaminated weld and an area of no plate.
