The best way to protect your car against the onset of corrosion is by applying a rust proofing treatment. There are automotive shops who specialise in applying relevant products to your car or you can do this yourself. Broadly speaking, rust proofing is a process by which a metal surface such as that of iron or steel is protected against the focus of a chemical process that will lead to corrosion. In this article we share information about two products used to protect the undercarriage and exterior of a vehicle from rust >>
Cavity wax offers rust protection by displacing moisture present in cavities. The wax coats the metal offering protection - often necessary because cavities don't get the same level of protection as external body panels. Before applying, thoroughly clean the cavities of dirt and grime, wear protective clothing and protect the ground or workshop floor before you get to work. Many products require the use of a compressor to blast the wax into the applied cavities under pressure. Move the nozzle around to build up a layer of rust protection around all areas within the closed cavity. Keep spraying the product into the cavity until it starts dripping from the holes - an indication all surfaces are saturated. Dinitrol cavity waxes offer good film building properties as discussed.
Deciding whether car underbody rust protection is a necessary process or not is a much debated subject amongst car enthusiasts. The consensus appears to be that it depends on the make of car, types of road and climate frequently driven and age (of car). Amongst old or classic car owners, most will agree, without debate, that underbody rust protection is a necessary process to avoid high costs of treating rust and replacing car parts.
