For the last couple of decades ago, rust has been the number one killer of most classic and old vehicles we have in the junkyard. Only through a chemical reaction of air and moisture over metal, a brownish substance forms and costs over the metal Rust eats off the metal through the chemical reactions and makes the metal general weak. Rust has been a huge threat to the health and well-being of our cars for a long time. It is just a couple of years back when scantiest came up with techniques that can help combat this menace. Rustproofing is a process of protecting your car against agents of rust or rather delaying the rate of rust formations. It can be either permanent or for a given period all that depending on what the owner chooses. It is broken down into several different techniques and methods which will be discussed later.

After getting that brand new whip, the manager or the person in charge likely asked if you get extra rust protection for your car. This happens more often especially to those in the winter and cold regions. It is also likely that the same guy introduced you to an extended warranty. Well, before we dig deep into rustproofing, you need to know about an extended warranty. It is an extension to the original manufacturer’s warranty. Plays a similar role to the original warranty and is much comprehensive. You might have turned that person down reason being you did not believe if it is effective or maybe you knew nothing about it. Now that you know, you need to get one from us at A-Protect Warranty Corporation.

Before we get down to the pros and cons of rustproofing, you need to know the different types of rustproofing methods.


 Types of rustproofing methods.


1.Electric module.


The use of the electric module is a new concept developed to combat rust. It works through a small electric device that is connected to your car. The small device emits an electric current that flows through the car’s metallic structure. The current helps prevents the metal body from reacting with oxygen thus causing rust. However, unlike other methods, it is a little bit expensive.


2.Tar-based spray.


This method involves a tar-based spray being sprayed onto the cars and forms a barrier or acts as a shield against rust. When sprayed onto your car’s wheel, body panel, and any other exposed part, the fluid thickens over the surface thus preventing entry of water and oxygen which as we know are agents of rust formation. However, this form of rust protection does not guarantee a long time of protection. Over a given period, the layer begins to peel of hence exposing the bare p[arts to rust. You need to year redo the spraying so that the method can be effective.


Pros and cons of rust proofing.

Here are the pros and cons of rust proofing your car;




1.Extends your car’s life.


 Rustproofing is one way of extending the life of your car. Since most vital parts are usually beneath the car’s belly, rustproofing protects them from rust which as we know is a deadly killer. Rust-causing elements find it hard to penetrate and cause harm to the vital parts.


2.Boosts the resale value of the car.


If you don’t plan to drive your car for a long time and wish to sell it shortly then you won’t need to worry a lot about its value. It is because rustproofing prevents rust from attacking and ruining your car’s state. Hence after a given period, you can sell your car while it is still in good shape.




1.Only works best with new cars.


The right time to get a rust-proof done to your car is immediately after purchasing it. You don’t have to wait till it’s too late. This is because; doing a rust-proof for an old car is less effective or rather does not give amazing results in the end. For an old car, you won’t get the best result in it. You will strain a lot by first removing the already formed rust and dust beneath then applying it.


2.Needs to be redone after a given period.


 The ‘’permanent’’ of the rustproofing method is not a lifetime guarantee that your car will be protected forever. You need to redo the rustproofing method you used after a given period. In most cases, you need to do it after every 3-5 years. This is the only way to guarantee your car lifetime protection.
