Home > Reliable Collision & Painting Blog > Rustproofing: How it Works

We at Reliable Collision & Painting know that no one likes developing rust on their car. Not only do rust patches look bad, they can also weaken the structure of your vehicle and make it less safe to drive. To prevent this from happening to your car, our team at Reliable Collision & Painting offers rustproofing services that will keep your car sleek and road-ready for years to come. In this article, we’ll explain how the rustproofing process works so that you can make an informed decision about whether it’s right for your car.

Rustproofing uses an oil-spray treatment to prevent the oxidation process

Rustproofing uses an oil-spray treatment to prevent the oxidation process, stopping rust from forming and inhibiting the growth of any spots that already exist. It is a well-known fact that oil repels water, and this treatment uses oil’s naturally hydrophobic qualities to get rid of any traces of moisture in contact with the vehicle’s surface before they can hasten the rusting process. In addition, the oil used in rustproofing has additional rust-inhibiting compounds mixed in for another layer of protection.

At Reliable Collision & Painting, one question we frequently receive about this process is if you will need to repeat this oil treatment after washing your car. Fortunately, the answer is no. Once applied to your car, the oil forms a moisture-resistant bond with the surface of the metal, and will not be affected by rain or even soap. With our rustproofing treatment, you’ll be able to keep your vehicle free from rust and dirt and enjoy driving in style.
