RUST PROTECTION WITH RUST-GARD

Rust-Gua rd uses a microprocessor controlled circuit to generate a negative electrical charge to your car's grounded body panels which in turn inhibits the forming of rust. Unlike conventional rust-proofing that is sprayed onto the underbody of your car, Rust-Gard protects all continuous metal panels throughout the car. Rust-Gard is particularly effective in reducing rust and corrosion formed when the underbody of your car receives nicks and cuts to the vehicle manufacturers own body sealant, during the course of its normal life.

Benefits of Electronic Rust Protection

Rust Proofing attracts higher resale value for your car. A properly cared for car with no rust will achieve a far higher resale or lease-end value than a well-cared for car that exhibits signs of rust. Not even scratches will rust!
 
A cleaner car. Air-borne dust will no longer be attracted to your car.
Eliminate static shocks from your car. Suffer no more pain during dry weather.

A better looking car. Rust is unsightly.

A safer car. Structural components can fail due to excessive rusting.

Keep your car longer. A car with rust will not last as long as a rust-free car.

Eliminate Static Shocks
In 95% of cases, static shock is completely eliminated. In those rare cases where it is not completely eliminated, it is reduced to be barely noticeable.

How Rust Protection Works

Rust-Gard uses a microprocessor controlled circuit to generate a negative electrical charge to your car's grounded body panels which in turn inhibits the forming of rust. Unlike conventional rust-proofing that is sprayed onto the underbody of your car, Rust-Gard protects all continuous metal panels throughout the car. Rust-Gard is particularly effective in reducing rust and corrosion formed when the underbody of your car receives nicks and cuts to the vehicle manufacturers own body sealant, during the course of its normal life.

Rust is the result of the corrosion of iron and steel. Iron is produced from iron ore. Iron is created by heating iron ore, and steel is produced by combining iron ore, carbon and other selected metal alloys. Iron has a tendency to return to its natural form of iron oxide or rust.

To understand how rust is created, consider the chemical reaction in a battery:

A carbon rod (called the cathode) is surrounded by a zinc case called the anode. When a wire is connected to the outside of the battery through the two terminals, current flows between two metals through an electrolyte (electricity conducting paste). Not only does current flow from the zinc case to the carbon pole, but particles of zinc are eaten away (corroded) and deposited on the carbon pole, through molecular movement. A similar occurrence happens on your car's metal surfaces. Miniature "batteries" are formed all over by:
Two different metals near or touching one another (Eg. seam welds).
Impurities within the metal causing localized areas of differing electrical potentials all over its surface.

Different concentrations of oxygen in metal, causing localized areas of differing electrical potentials across the surface. In order for these "batteries" to operate they must have an electrolyte. Water is a suitable electrolyte - even humid air will work. If the moisture contains acids (usually from air pollution or salt from the ocean or road) the electrolyte conducts electricity very efficiently, speeding the corrosion process. An automobile is exposed to these conditions through:
- Humid or Salt Laden Air.
- Rain and snow.
- Condensation.
- Pockets of dirt that hold moisture from the rain or snow.

Rust-Gard uses a microprocessor controlled circuit to generate a negative electrical charge to your car's grounded body panels which in turn inhibits the forming of rust. Unlike conventional rust-proofing that is sprayed onto the underbody of your car, Rust-Gard protects all continuous metal panels throughout the car. Rust-Gard is particularly effective in reducing rust and corrosion formed when the underbody of your car receives nicks and cuts to the vehicle manufacturers own body sealant, during the course of its normal life.

Cars today has approximately 3,000 welds. Welds and their immediate vicinity are the areas most vulnerable - and are the areas hardest to protect with conventional rust-proofing treatments. Rust-Gard is the only practical method to protect all the continuous metal throughout your car, including the inner cavities.
Through innovative design, Rust-Gard works especially well in humid and harsh environments - the times when your automobile will need it most. Rust-Gard has been manufactured to reduce rust and corrosion from both the outside and inside of your car.

Other Systems

Conventional rust proofing (also referred to as chemical rust proofing) consists of a physical barrier that is sprayed onto the underside of the car. The chemical used inhibits the "battery effect" mentioned above and therefore prevents rust. The problem is that the only parts protected are those completely covered by the chemical. If, for example, you get a scratch in the paintwork of the car, it will start to rust. Also, if the chemical is removed from an area (eg. by a tree branch touching the underside of the car) the protection is removed from the area affected. Electronic rust protection protects the whole car.

Rust-Gard uses a Patent Pending method of operation called Pulsed Current design. The active principle that delivers Rust-Gard's impressive results is a high-frequency direct current charge to the entire automobile's metal frame work and surface. Once installed, Rust-Gard delivers this charge many times a second for a pre-determined period of time, forming a protective coating of excess electrons. It is this coating which lessens the destructive oxidation and corrosion of your car's metals.
