The average vehicle is made up of about 65% steel and iron. And while steel is one of the most reliable and durable materials for cars, it does not always last forever. Corrosion is the number one enemy of iron alloys, causing issues such as poor structural integrity, engine damage, and the destruction of electronic systems. To prevent such problems, you will need automotive undercoating.

Automotive undercoating – A quick guide to protecting your vehicles

Car undercoating or rust inhibitor paints from Rust Bullet are formulated to prevent rust from affecting your vehicles. They act as a strong barrier between your metal surfaces and the external environment, interfering with the corrosive process.

To apply rust inhibitors properly on your car, follow these steps:

  • Prepare the surface

Surface preparation is a key step in applying rust-prevention coatings, ensuring that they work properly and effectively.

First, make sure the surface of your vehicle is completely dry and free of loose contaminants, such as rust, paint, dirt, salts, and oil. You may remove this debris with sandpaper or a wire brush.

Avoid using other chemicals to surface preparation to prevent different solutions from interacting with each other.

  • Prepare your products

Before using automotive undercoating, make sure that it’s ready to use. Stir the mixture thoroughly for three minutes or until it is completely homogenous. Avoid shaking the mixture or using electrical mixing devices during preparation.

  • Use a suitable application method.

There are three ways to apply Rust Bullet’s vehicle undercoating: brushing, rolling, or spraying. Regardless of your application method, it’s best to apply Rust Bullet products in two to three thin, evenly spread coats.

Allow the coats to dry for approximately 2 to 12 hours, depending on the relative humidity and temperature of your surface and location.

Automotive undercoating from Rust Bullet provides long-lasting, reliable protection for your vehicles. Don’t hesitate to purchase our products now and bid goodbye to all your rusty problems!
