Stone Chip Paint
Are you protecting your vehicle chassis with a suitable stone chip paint product coating solution? With the UK highway network continuing to crumble and local councils not repairing roads due to a lack of funds. Deteriorating roads are leaving many vehicle owners with costly suspension damage caused by the increasingly more common problem of potholes. Many motorists fail to recognise the additional risk of stone chipping damage with debris from the pot holes hitting the vehicle chassis. If the stone penetrates the vehicles underbody paint coating to reveal the bare metal underneath, this can soon lead to rusting around the chassis if not repaired.
Due to this reason we recommend regularly inspecting the vehicle underbody area for any exposed metal caused by stone chipping and applying a suitable stone chip paint treatment to protect the vehicle chassis. To inspect the vehicle thoroughly you’ll also need to remove all the wheels to check inside the arches. If not treated quickly continual exposure with road surface water ingress and rock salt a highly corrosive accelerator, will soon lead to surface rust appearing. If unchecked this issue can present major problems incurring expensive mechanical repairs and welding in extreme circumstances. Even though automotive manufacturers apply an underbody chassis coating during new vehicle production assembly, you should not be solely reliant on this protection.
