Professional Step by Step vehicle rustproofing treatment process
During the 1st stage we hoist the vehicle using a ramp and remove all the wheels by unscrewing them. We then proceed to remove all plastic trim covers fitted around the vehicle and undercarriage to provide full access for the corrosion protection treatment applications.
2. Pressure washing
Once all plastic trim covers are removed to fully expose the vehicle under-carriage. The vehicle chassis underbody area and wheel arches are steam cleaned with a specialist anti corrosion solution then rinsed off with hot water.
3. Drying period & inspection
After the vehicle is completely dry the vehicle underbody area is professionally inspected by a trained technician searching for evidence of rust or corrosion starting to appear. If any evidence of corrosion is already present the rust will be treated with RC900 a specialist converter and primer.
4. Cavity wax treatment
A penetrating cavity wax is injected into doors, bonnet and vehicle body frame via small insertion holes using a specialist lance extension. The DINITROL rustproofing technician also follows specialist spray diagrams to ensure no safety sensors in doors are damaged.
5. Engine Preservation
A specially designed product for automotive vehicle engines is applied throughout the compartment. Once dry the transparent coat hardens to provide a film that is resistant to alkalin and acids whilst providing heat resistance up to temperatures of more than 200°C
6. Applying underbody coating
A thin layer of penetrating cavity wax is applied to provide an under-carriage pre-treatment before the final protective underbody coating is applied. Once the underbody coating layer is dry it provides protection for the vehicle chassis against gravel, salt and harsh weather conditions.
7. Cleaning the vehicle
Once all the treatments have been applied to the vehicle. The car will be completely washed and cleaned to ensure any unwanted residue is removed. A mirror hanger will also be hung in the vehicle cabin containing useful information in relation to the customers DINITROL treatment.
8. Photo Documentation
Throughout the vehicle rustproofing treatment process the technician will take pictures before, during and after the treatment. This photographic documented evidence is shown to the customer when collecting their vehicle and is archived with the vehicles treatment history information.
9. Final inspection
After the vehicle has been fully cleaned a final inspection is conducted before refitting all the plastic covers. On collecting the vehicle the customer is provided with an application certificate & photographic evidence of the treatment.
