Rubberized Undercoating: The Ultimate Protection for Your Vehicle
Why is undercoating necessary?
Rust on vehicles is typically formed when metal surfaces come into contact with water and oxygen over an extended period of time. The moisture in the air and any water that accumulates on the surface of the vehicle can react with the metal, causing it to oxidize and form rust.
Salt and other road debris can also contribute to rust formation on vehicles, particularly in areas with a lot of snow or salt on the roads during winter. This is because salt and other chemicals used to de-ice roads can speed up the oxidation process, causing rust to form more quickly.
Once rust starts to form, it can quickly spread and weaken the metal, leading to serious structural problems if not addressed promptly. Regular maintenance, such as washing and waxing your vehicle to protect the metal surface from moisture and other environmental factors, can help prevent rust from forming and prolong the life of your vehicle. You be asking yourself, but what about the underbody of my car? What can I do about that?
What is Rubberized Undercoating?
Rubberized undercoating is a type of protective coating that is applied to the underside of a vehicle. It is designed to protect the vehicle's undercarriage from damage caused by road debris, salt, and moisture. Rubberized undercoating is typically made from a blend of rubber polymers and solvents that provide a flexible, durable layer of protection.
How does it work?
Rubberized undercoating is a type of protective coating that is applied to the underside of a vehicle. It is designed to protect the vehicle’s undercarriage from damage caused by road debris, salt, and moisture. Rubberized undercoating is typically made from a blend of rubber polymers and solvents that provide a flexible, durable layer of protection.
Rubberized undercoating works by forming a protective layer on the underside of your vehicle. The coating is applied using a spray gun and dries to form a flexible, durable layer. The coating is designed to withstand the harsh conditions of the road, including exposure to salt, moisture, and debris.
How long does rubberized undercoating last?
Typically, our product is designed to be a one-time application that lasts a lifetime on most vehicles. For new vehicles without rust, our product can effectively resist the elements and prevent rust from forming on the underbody. However, older vehicles may require more than one application to ensure maximum protection against rust. If the underbody of the vehicle is scraped or damaged, it’s important to apply a fresh coat of our product to replace any missing protection.
Rubber vs. Oil Undercoating
Rubber undercoating is typically preferred over oil-based undercoating for a few reasons:
Durability: Rubber undercoating is more durable and longer-lasting than oil-based undercoating. It can withstand harsh weather conditions, road salt, and other environmental factors that can cause damage to a vehicle.
Sound Dampening: In addition to its protective benefits, rubberized undercoating can also minimize road noise and vibrations, leading to a smoother and more comfortable ride. This is a feature that oil-based products lack.
Rust Prevention: The undercoating creates a moisture-resistant barrier that prevents water and air from reaching the metal surface, which helps to stop the oxidation process that causes rust.
Fewer Applications: The rubberized undercoating forms a long-lasting bond and dries rapidly, whereas oil-based alternatives have a tendency to wash away gradually and must be reapplied on a yearly basis.
In contrast, oil-based undercoating can be messy, difficult to apply evenly, and can attract dirt and debris, leading to an accumulation of moisture and potential rusting over time.
