How to treat the bottom of the car from corrosion

Careful operation allows you to save on repairs, ensures the durability of the car and safety on the road. Experts from the Tekhnika driving school have prepared an article on how to extend the life of a car by following simple rules.

Consider mileage when buying engine oil

If the mileage of a car is higher than 200 thousand kilometers, it is worth using a special oil for cars with high mileage. The tool allows you to:

  • reduce friction between the crankshaft, cylinders and pistons;
  • compensate for gaps in friction pairs caused by wear;
  • provide reinforced protection against corrosion;
  • remove dirt from the internal elements of the motor.

Determining the degree of engine wear is not always appropriate by mileage. Sometimes cars that have wound less than 200 thousand km require special care. For example, if a car is more often operated in unfavorable conditions - poor-quality roads, off-road, regular downtime in traffic jams.

Careful driving

Driving style directly affects the condition of the car, its working life. Let's list the most bad habits of the driver:

  • sharp accelerations, braking and maneuvers;
  • descending a slope with the brake continuously pressed;
  • parking the car without a hand brake.

If possible, keep to a measured pace, as sloppy driving contributes to premature wear of tires, suspension, brake pads, bodywork, electrical and steering systems.

Don't overload the vehicle

Do not overload the machine - this will negatively affect the condition of the engine, body, suspension, rubber, steering and transmission. With systematic overloads, a passenger car works in emergency mode, which means that at any time it can fail.

In order not to overload the car, look at the data sheet and check what capacity it is designed for. So, for a small car, the excess of the norm by 20-25 kg will be significant, and for a large car - 60-70 km.

Keep track of your tires

Anti-corrosion treatment of a car in Minsk is a rather complicated process, which implies the need for strict implementation of the correct algorithm for applying anti-corrosive agent. However, the question of how to treat the bottom of the car from corrosion is no less important, because the choice of high-quality anti-corrosion compounds is the key to reliable protection of the car for several years. Therefore, the specialists of our Center for Anticorrosive Treatment in Minsk are very responsible in the selection of anticorrosive materials and other materials that they use in their work.

Modern car owners do not experience a lack of quality anticorrosive products. However, it is important to understand that it is necessary to select the correct protective composition, corresponding to the specifics of the treated surface.

Our specialists use the following anticorrosive materials in Minsk:

For example, to protect the car bottom, wheel arches and sills, Dinitrol 479 anticorrosive can be an optimal choice. For the treatment of hidden body cavities, it is better to choose Dinitrol ML. In order not only to increase the anti-corrosion protection of the car, but also to protect it from the effects of abrasive materials (sand, gravel), you can stop at Tectyl Bodysafe. Our experts are always ready to give you comprehensive advice on choosing a specific type of anticorrosive, relying not only on many years of experience, but also on a professional assessment of the current state of your car.

How else to treat the underside of the car?

To ensure optimal protection of the underbody and car body, the specialists of the Anticorrosion Treatment Center in Minsk do not limit themselves to using only anticorrosive materials. In particular, in the process of processing the bottom of a car, primers, primers, anti-gravel compounds, and special paints are used.

The use of primers and primers prior to the application of the anticorrosive agent allows to create a basic protection of the metal surface, as well as to ensure better adhesion of the protective anticorrosive layer. Including, in terms of its ability to withstand serious vibrations and not crack during vehicle operation.

Coating the anticorrosive layer with anti-gravel compounds increases the resistance of the former to sand, small stones, ice and other abrasive materials. Despite the fact that the anticorrosives we use by default have a good ability to withstand mechanical stress, the use of anti-gravel will not be superfluous.

Experts consider the following to be the best anti-gravel compounds:

  • Liqui Moly Steinschlag-Schutz - top anti-gravel, provides the best protection against gravel.
  • Body 950 - the choice of buyers, i.e. very reliable and inexpensive.
  • Hi-Gear Chip Stop Protector Clear - American anti-gravel with excellent characteristics.
  • Kerry 971 - anti-gravel with a shagreen effect.
  • Novol Gravit MS 600 is a unique anti-gravel based on synthetic resins.
