Recommended Practice for Optimizing Automobile Damageability and Repairability

Collision Repair Committee
  • Ground Vehicle Standard
  • J1555_201602
  • Current
Published 2016-02-03 by SAE International in United States
This SAE Recommended Practice applies to all portions of the vehicle, but design efforts should focus on components and systems with the highest contribution to the overall average repair cost (see 3.7). The costs to be minimized include not only insurance premiums, but also out-of-pocket costs incurred by the owner. Damageability, repairability, serviceability and diagnostics are inter-related. Some repairability, serviceability and diagnostics operations may be required for collision or comprehensive loss-related causes only. Some operations may be for non-collision-related causes only (warranty, scheduled maintenance, non-scheduled maintenance, etc.). Some may be required for both causes. The scope of this document deals with only those operations that involve collision and comprehensive insurance loss repairs.

OEM Plastic Parts Repair

Collision Repair Committee
  • Ground Vehicle Standard
  • J1573_201112
  • Current
Published 2011-12-20 by SAE International in United States
This SAE Recommended Practice defines the information required to repair the various types of plastics found on modern light-duty highway vehicles. Information is included for the repair and refinishing of most plastic body parts, both interior and exterior. Repair information is described for all commonly used plastics including, but not limited to, polyurethanes, polycarbonate blends, modified polypropylenes, polyethylenes and nylons. Repairs can be made to these types of plastics using two-part (2K) repair adhesives, plastic welding, and other materials available from body shop suppliers. When a new type of plastic is being introduced to the market through a new vehicle program, specific repair and refinishing procedures should be provided, following the format in this document. Sheet-molded compounds (SMC), fiber-reinforced plastics (FRP) and carbon fiber reinforced plastics can also be repaired using slightly different procedures and repair materials.

  • Ground Vehicle Standard
  • J1573_200810
  • Historical
Published 2008-10-30 by SAE International in United States
This SAE Recommended Practice defines the information required to repair the various types of plastics found on modern light-duty highway vehicles. Information is included for the repair and refinishing of most flexible, semi-flexible, and rigid plastic body parts, both interior and exterior. Repair information is described for all commonly used plastics including polyurethanes, polycarbonate blends, modified polypropylenes, polyethylenes, nylons, sheet-molded compounds (SMC), and fiber-reinforced plastics (FRP). Repairs can be made to these types of plastics using two-part (2K) repair adhesives, plastic welding, and other materials available from body shop suppliers. When a new type of plastic is being introduced to the market through a new vehicle program, specific repair and refinishing procedures should be provided, following the format in this document. Purpose The use of plastics in cars has increased to over 12% by weight, with several types being used for structural and mechanical applications. Interior and exterior plastic body parts have become an integral part of the automotive design, reducing overall weight to aid in increasing fuel efficiency. The use of plastic compounds for…
