Why should I Rust Protect my vehicle?
Rust shortens the life of your vehicle and ruins its appearance, greatly reducing its resale value.
The simple truth is that vehicles still rust. In fact they start rusting from the moment the steel is made.
- Freezing Water
- Road Salt
- Electrochemical Corrosion
- Spot Welding
Diamont-Kote® Rust Protection undercoating forms a permanent barrier between the metal panels of
the vehicle and the elements of nature to prevent corrosion. Many people
believe that road salt is the most
common cause of vehicle rust. It certainly helps promote corrosion but the
number one cause of vehicle rust is condensation.
Moisture creeps into your vehicle's seams and crevasses where this condensation acts as a
conductor to promote rust. "Electrolysis" is another major contributor to vehicle rust whereby different
types of metal on a vehicle generate an electrical current that actually accelerates corrosion!
Does the factory Rust-Protect my vehicle?
Automobile manufacturers ship their vehicles to all corners of the world and all climates.
Only a small portion of these vehicle markets are considered "Corrosion Zones" so it is
not feasible to add complete rust protection at the factory.
Diamond-Kote® Rust Protection is applied to the fully assembled vehicle
(without the need to drill holes in your new car!!) to create an air and water-tight barrier
which prevents moisture from attacking even the most recessed, vulnerable metal
surfaces on your vehicle.
