Which Rustproofing Treatment is the Best for Your Car

Fall isn t just the season to swap tires, it’s also the last nice and dry opportunity to protect your vehicle from rust before the snow and calcium show up on the roads. Even though vehicles today are more durable, a rustproofing treatment still has many upsides. It’s a fact; nothing costs more on a car than bodywork and paint jobs. The condition of the various critical underbody parts also depends on it. Whether you are dealing with a car dealership or a specialized rustproofing business, you should know that not all treatments are created equal.

Let’s take a look at electronic rust protection. How does it work? In a nutshell, electric current is routed through a module connected to the battery. This may work for a metal shipping containers or boats, but the current cannot pass everywhere on a car since it contains various types of materials, such as plastic and rubber. It is therefore better to opt for another solution.

Conventional oil treatment is generally effective and affordable, except that it requires a yearly application. Skipping a year might not sound so bad, but since some vehicles are more prone to corrosion than others, it is best not to take any risks and dish out the $80 to $150 every year. The most well-known disadvantages of oil relate to spillage stains, which don’t happen very often. However, considering the fact that the product adheres better on warmer surfaces, it is better to do it earlier than later.

Finally, a grease-based treatment done during the first year of ownership could essentially last a lifetime. It costs several hundred dollars depending on the vehicle model. After five or six years (will you still own the car?), it is important to make small touch-ups in certain areas of the car or even treat the parts which have been repaired or replaced after an accident.

It is critical to carefully wash the vehicle before rustproofing it, as applying a coat of oil or grease to dust and mud is not very effective. If you want to keep your car for a long time, continue the treatments every year even if it shows signs of rust. The layer of oil or grease applied to the bodywork will help slow the corrosion process down. In the winter and the summer, remember to clean your car regularly to prevent salt and dirt accumulations that retain moisture and promote corrosion.
