How to choose your rust proofing?
Since the Quebec climate is the corrosion’s best friend, it is important to choose an effective rust protection treatment to protect your car’s bodywork and components. Depending on the age of your car, you can choose between a permanent or annual treatment. The first, recommended for vehicles less than a year old, has the advantage of lasting a long time (e.g., up to 10 years). The second is applied every year and therefore represents a recurrent cost.
Depending on the treatment chosen, you can choose one of the following 3 anti-rust products, among others:
- Liquid oil, because of its fluidity, will slip and infiltrate every nook and cranny of your car. The treatment must be redone annually.
- Semi-solid oil is made of wax to adhere well to the materials. However, since the heat of your vehicle can gradually melt it, the treatment must be repeated.
- Grease is more durable because it does not run despite the passage of time. The treatment lasts longer and requires only occasional touch-ups when changing parts.
Over time, rust can attack essential components of your vehicle and make it less safe. To prevent problems, make an appointment for a rust proofing treatment in a Mister Muffler repair shop!
