Hi to all,just about to start fitting new floor pans,all cleaned and going to spot weld.I noticed a product used on youtube where a seam sealer is applied to both surfaces and then spot welded whilst still wet.Has anyone used this application? or any other recommendations? Neil

Are you thinking of "weld through primer"?
Zinc-rich so it persists in the seam after welding.
Then, brush seam sealer well into the seam when cool.

But I am surprised to find that 3M have a "weld through seam sealer".
See: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fKu32jqP1fc
Never heard of it before, let alone used it!
And I can't find anywhere in the UK that sells it.
Good luck!

Looks like it's something for professional body shops really - however, like most of these things, I'm sure it'll trickle down into a more DIY friendly application in the next few years.

Hello Neil,

it may be that it is not yet sold in the U.K. from the above comments. I don't think it's a DIY product as few people have spot welders and I suspect it won't work well with other welding processes.

Weld through seam sealer has been available for e very long time, I first used it in the late 1980s after i bought my first spot welder.

Cheers,
Bill.

I've only used it with a spotwelder, and that was some time ago.
I was given some in an unmarked plastic tub, decanted from a larger container by a firend in the trade. While I never handled the original packaging, I think it was a 3M product,

With a spot welder, it made a very sattisfying 'fizz' as it flowed around the heated metal.

Cheers,
Bill.
