Why an electronic rustproofing installer is so important

4x4Rustproofing > Blog > Automotive Rust Proofing > Why an electronic system fitter is as important as the system itself

At 4×4 Rustproofing & Beach Wash we exclusively use CouplerTec electronic rustproofing systems. CouplerTec’s Patented Capacitive Coupling Technology interferes with the electrical charge between Iron and Oxygen so it becomes hard for these elements to combine to form rust. CouplerTec’s Capacitive Coupling Technology achieves this by creating a negative (-) electrostatic surface charge on the metal surface of the protected structure. The (-) Oxygen atom is repelled by the (-) electrostatic surface charge.


Before you even start thinking about electronic rustproofing we need to take into account the type of system that would provide your 4×4 with the best rust protection. This includes the size of your car, how often you take it to the beach, your cars living proximity to the beach. Whether we are using a package deal with chemical rustproofing methods and whether or not your 4×4 has a chassis. These are the sort of details our owner/manager takes to provide the best advice to the customer.


But this electronic rustproofing system also requires proper installation for you to get the best value for your 4wd. By the time we go to fit an electronic rust prevention system most people usually have extra accessories and modifications to the engine bay making the fitment more difficult. Our owner has a 25+ year history as a mechanic and is familiar with makes and models of 4wd’s to know how best to fit a system. All systems are either fitted by him or under his supervision. This means no unsightly wires and poor pad placement. We pride ourselves on our quality installation service


Once we return the car to the customer we also like to give a walk through of how the system is fitted. Where wires had been run so owners know the layout through their 4wd and where the system is installed. Also, a friendly reminder on how to check the system to make sure it is functioning as it should. Here at 4×4 Rustproofing we do free annual checks on all systems we have fitted ourselves to make sure they are still providing our customers with quality protection.
