When repairing an aluminum structured vehicle, it is essential that extreme care be taken to capture all the particulates at the source to prevent cross metal contamination. If cold steel particles come in contact with bare aluminum, even in microscopic levels, it can lead to a reaction called “galvanic corrosion”. This reaction can corrode the metal or cause blistering or bubbling on the painted surface.
To prevent “galvanic corrosion”, automobile manufacturers have aluminum standards that need to be met before a body shop can become authorized for repair of their vehicles. Eurovac will ensure you meet the automobile manufacture standards with the use of a portable or central dust and fume extraction system. Eurovac will also ensure that you meet the aluminum standards in a safe manner as aluminum dust is a highly explosive particulate.
