Radio frequency welding is pivotal in the manufacturing process of products like industrial vinyl curtains for use in car washes, mechanic work stations, and spray paint booths used in the automotive industry. Autobody paint enclosures are also often used to create separate areas to keep the spray contained and the facility clean. Air filters can be incorporated into your body shop curtain wall as well, creating a clean and comfortable enclosure for workers.
Radio frequency welding and heat sealing create strong seams that stand up to daily use in a number of automotive workplace applications, are easy to clean, and create a healthier work environment by reducing mold build up on the seams.

Aluminum Auto Body Requirements
The recent change in the use of aluminum to manufacture car bodies (CAFE) has intensified the need for physical separation of these car repairs in autobody shops (NFPA 33 Enclosure Requirements). In years past, dust was the main contamination problem in autobody shops. With the introduction of aluminum dust, separation of aluminum and steel grinding areas are critical. In addition to industrial curtain walls, more autobody shops now employ car-sized enclosures with tops. These shelter like structures are most often RF welded together and used as an autobody enclosure.

RF welding is also used extensively in the manufacture of automotive interiors. Grooves, embossing and debossing with and without an intermediate layer of foam is used to manufacture interior door panels and various sections of seating.
Why Choose Radio Frequency Welding?
Radio frequency welding is an ideal choice for the automotive industry particularly due to how durable the finished products are. The welded seams created by RF welding and heat sealing are long lasting for a few reasons: first, because they are fused seams rather than stitched, and second, because there is no adhesive to wear out or wear off over time, the seal stays stronger longer.
Not only is an RF/HF welded seam fluid and air tight, but it is more durable and extremely resistant to abrasion. Unlike sewn seams, there are no edges for dirt or moisture to collect. The seams are uniform and as strong, or stronger than the original material.
