CORROSION PROTECTION
Description INFOID:0000000004162732
To provide improved corrosion prevention, the following anti-corrosive measures have been implemented in
NISSAN production plants. When repairing or replacing body panels, it is necessary to use the same anti-cor-
rosive measures.
Anti-Corrosive Precoated Steel (Galvannealed Steel)
To improve repairability and corrosion resistance, a new type of anti-
corrosive precoated steel sheet has been adopted replacing conven-
tional zinc-coated steel sheet.
Galvannealed steel is electroplated and heated to form Zinc-iron
alloy, which provides excellent and long term corrosion resistance
with cationic electrodeposition primer.
Nissan Genuine Service Parts are fabricated from galvannealed steel. Therefore, it is recommended that
GENUINE NISSAN PARTS or equivalent be used for panel replacement to maintain the anti-corrosive perfor-
mance built into the vehicle at the factory.
Phosphate Coating Treatment and Cationic Electrodeposition Primer
A phosphate coating treatment and a cationic electrodeposition primer, which provide excellent corrosion pro-
tection, are employed on all body components.
CAUTION:
Confine paint removal during welding operations to an absolute
minimum.
Nissan Genuine Service Parts are also treated in the same manner. Therefore, it is recommended that GENU-
INE NISSAN PARTS or equivalent be used for panel replacement to maintain anti-corrosive performance built
into the vehicle at the factory.
Anti-Corrosive Wax INFOID:0000000004162733
To improve corrosion resistance, anti-corrosive wax is applied inside the body sill and inside other closed sec-
tions. Accordingly, when replacing these parts, be sure to apply anti-corrosive wax to the appropriate areas of
