1 Scope
This standard defines requirements for corrosion protection of black paint coatings on metal
surfaces (code letter x in Volkswagen standard VW 137 50), e.g., for body parts. It does not apply
to paint coatings on zinc-coated metal surfaces (see TL 227), to decorative protective varnishes
(see TL 218) or to paint coatings on chassis parts that may form cavities (see TL 262).

2 Designation
See VW 137 50, Section 2.

3 Requirements

3.1 Protection types


The protection types listed in Table 1 apply.

Table 1
Protection type Characteristic
Ofl-x010 Commercial paintwork, permissible only after agreement with
the Central Laboratory at Volkswagen AG (K-QS-32) and/or
the Test Laboratory at Audi AG (I/GQ-32) and the responsible
Design Engineering Department;
no corrosion protection requirements.
Ofl-x100, Ofl-x300, Ofl-x600 Pretreatment not specified (not possible for manufacturing
reasons),
single-layer liquid paint according to any method, alternatively
cathodic dip paint.
Ofl-x130, Ofl-x330 Zinc phosphated, Fe or Mn phosphated,
single-layer liquid paint according to any method, alternatively
cathodic dip paint.
Ofl-x630 Zinc phosphated, cathodic dip paint.
Form FE 41 - 01.03

Protection type Characteristic


Ofl-x631 Zinc phosphated, dual layer painted (dip + spray painting)
Ofl-x634 Zinc phosphated, heavy coat cathodic dip paint or cathodic dip paint
+ conventional dip paint (for very highly stressed parts, e.g., front
end, engine compartment)

3.2 General requirements


Approval of first supply and changes according to VW 011 55.
Avoidance of hazardous substances according to VW 911 01.
Eight parts or part sections are required for complete testing.
The coatings used must be free of compounds containing chromium(VI) or lead.

3.3 Base material


Material according to drawing

3.4 Protection types/appearance


See Table 1. The color is always black unless otherwise specified in the drawing.

3.5 Conditioning
If air-drying coating systems are used and/or no paint system baking process at elevated
temperature (> 60 C) will be carried out, the components shall be conditioned for 24 h at 60 C
before the tests. The specimens are then cooled to room temperature (18 to 28) C according to
DIN 50014.

3.6 Paint coat thickness


See Table 2. For joining and contact surfaces, paint coat thickness limits may be necessary which
are to be specified in the drawing.

Table 2
Protection type Paint coat thickness in m
Ofl-x100, Ofl-x130, Ofl-x300, Ofl-x330, Ofl-x600 15 to 50 (for liquid paint)
> 12 (for cathodic dip paint)
Ofl-x630 15 to 35, in cavities 12
Ofl-x631 40 to 60
Ofl-x634 35 to 60, in cavities 20

3.7 Adhesion and brittleness


Crosscut test according to DIN EN ISO 2409. Requirement: characteristic value 0 to 1.

3.8 Resistance to stone impact

Test according to DIN 55996-1, method B with visual examination. Requirement: characteristic value 2.
