The president AvtoVAZ Maxim Sokolov said that the painting of Lada cars is carried out using modern technology. In particular, thanks to cataphoresis, the machines do not encounter rust, reports RIA News.
“Now the modern technology of coloring: five layers, this is a rather high-tech process using cataphoresis. Due to certain electrochemical reactions, an exchange of ions occurs and the penetration of a layer that prevents corrosion directly into the structure of the metal,” Sokolov answered the question of how the company overcomes the problem of corrosion.
The head of AvtoVAZ added that the guarantee against through-corrosion of metal provided by the automaker is six years.
Formerly Sokolov declared about problems with import substitution when assembling Lada. According to him, the company has not found a replacement for about a third of the components (1.5 out of 4.5 thousand) from which the car is made.
