Underbody & Rust Prevention
Undercoating Rust Prevention
WHY VEHICLE RUST?
Despite recent advances in the materials and manufacture of vehicles, corrosion is still with us. You can hardly miss the effects of rust as you commute to and from work. The sight of cars and trucks with rusty fenders, doors and frames is as common now as it was decades ago. In fact, the need for corrosion protection has become more urgent that ever.
Why is this? Many transportation experts blame the new generation of road de-icing chemicals, particularly magnesium chloride. This compound forms a crystalline film on the body and the windows of vehicles that is difficult to wash off. Magnesium Chloride draws moisture from the air and the residue on the vehicle becomes actively corrosive at humidity rates below 25 percent. Adding to the threat is the fact that many government entities use magnesium chloride for dust control on dirt and gravel roads. For many vehicles exposed to a range of driving conditions, magnesium chloride can be a year-round problem, not just a seasonal one.
Fortunately, rust/corrosion prevention is still possible. By following a regular program of corrosion prevention coating, anti-corrosion spray, and other maintenance, you can keep your car in excellent condition.
HOW CAN WE HELP?
Z TECH ANTI-RUST COATINGS.
Start from the inside. The mechanism of corrosion requires that an electrolyte, usually water, come into contact with the steel. Therefore, whatever you can do to prevent this interaction is critical to achieving anti corrosion protection. Applying an anti-corrosion spray wax helps prevent inside-out rust. The wax is inserted into selected vehicle cavities located in the doors, hood, trunk frame, fenders, quarter panels and rocker panels. It then forms a barrier that prevents the electrolyte from coming into contact with the metal.
