When rust happens to your car, it’s probably because you’re living in a coastal region or an area prone to high rainfall and humidity. For this reason, you need a way of preventing rust and removing it from your vehicle so that you can keep driving it safely in these conditions and also successfully sell it in the future. There are different types of rust proofing, which could leave you in some confusion about which one is best. Here you’ll see some of the benefits of your different options.
Electronic Rust Protection
Electronic rust protection might seem like simple technology, but the science behind it is quite incredible. A device is attached to your car that emits a slight electric current that prevents the metal of your car from reacting to oxygen, which is how rust is formed. This form of rust prevention is beneficial because there are no chemicals involved, which means that there’s no need for reapplications. It’s a good choice if you’re looking for a one-off solution that you won’t have to worry about in the future.
Chemical Rust Proofing
Chemical rust proofing is done by spraying chemicals onto the undercarriage of your vehicle. It lasts for a long time and only needs to be redone once every few years. Chemical treatment can be done to remove existing rust and put a protective wax layer that prevents further contact with water. While many forms of chemical rust proofing do have an impact on the environment with regards to chemical runoff, modern companies like 4×4 Rustproofing use chemicals with a low environmental impact. If you’d like to temporarily protect your car for a season or want to remove existing rust on its surface, then this is a good option for you.
