Our history dates back to 1970 when a Canadian pilot set out to combat the corrosion of dissimilar metals and electronic components in light aircraft.
Early research revealed that the application of sealants, tars, waxes and oil spray was clearly the wrong approach to controlling corrosive oxidization and metallic rustout. It was reasoned that moisture was the primary catalyst that accelerated the corrosion process. Therefore, the elimination of moisture was essential to the success of a viable rust inhibitor.
Although sealants and waxes were designed to block moisture out, testing showed that they dry out and crack, trapping moisture against the metallic surface that they were supposed to protect.
Testing also proved that oil sprays would not displace moisture and actually “floated” on water. Other inherent problems indicated that oil spray could cause ignition problems, fire and health hazards and would not bond to metal surfaces for prolonged periods of time.
It was concluded that a precise formula of various chemicals was needed to displace moisture, penetrate contaminants, creep into seams and crevices and bond to metal. After two years of testing, the formula known as Rust Check was developed and refined for the automotive industry.
In the fall of 1972, this unique chemically formulated rust protection system was introduced to the general public through the first Rust Check center in Hepworth, Ontario.
Since 1972, over 2 million Rust Check body protection applications have been performed.
The Rust Check products are also available in convenient aerosol packages for use at home, the cottage, office and farm through Automotive Jobbers and your local Rust Check dealer. The proven corrosion inhibiting performance, along with superior lubrication capabilities have made these products popular with the retail consumer and the Do-It-Yourself markets.
THE RUST CHECK PROCESSES
Since 1972, Rust Check has provided undercarriage and inner body panel protection. This product is a light liquid, formulated to penetrate into crevices and seams by capillary action. Once inside the crevices and seams, Rust Check dispels moisture and keeps it from penetrating, thereby inhibiting the corrosion process.
Your vehicle is subjected to thousands of spot welds, as well as numerous bends and folds during production. These processes damage the pre-coated metal, allowing exposure to the corrosion process.
Corrosive salt and damaging moisture penetrate unprotected inner panel seams, depositing corrosive contaminants that will destroy metal over time. This corrosion not only affects the appearance of your vehicle, but can also attack the joints and spot welds that hold you vehicle together. The result is a vehicle that can become structurally unsafe.
The Rust Check chemical provides excellent protection for body components though its deep crevice penetrating ability.
As an option, Rust Check offers a unique two step application process designed specifically to provide highly effective corrosion protection, while offering substantial cosmetic benefits in the under carriage appearance of your vehicle.
Rust Check Coat & Protect is a thicker version of Rust Check that forms a moisture and abrasion-resistant protective coating that retains the same highly effective characteristics as Rust Check and is highly self-healing.
Rust Check Coat & Protect provides the required protection for your vehicle undercarriage, as well as a more attractive appearance.
