Anti Rust Coating in Car. 3M Anti Rust Prices with Pros-Cons

3M Anti Rust Coating in New Car. Wondering is the Anti Rust Treatement Coating Useful, Know Pros and Cons with Differences in Dealership and 3M Store

 

Anti Rust Coating

A Car Body is made up of several Metals - Iron, Steel, Aluminium, Copper etc. 

Rusting is the common term for corrosion of iron and its alloys. Corrosion is the reaction of Iron and Oxygen, as may present in Water or Air Moisture. Any Iron material when exposed to both oxygen and water is bound to rust - unless a preventive coating is applied on to it. 

For Coastal Areas - due to higher Moisture - Rusting is a common Phenomenon on Iron & Steel Products. Additional is the Sea Water Proximity - The presence of salt acts as a catalyst, accelerating the corrosion chemical reaction process.

However, w.r.t Car - There are Enough Corrosion Resistant Coatings applied by Car Manufacturers in all Critical Areas, Body Panel, UnderBody of Car - to prevent Rust. Also - Galvanized Material with Rust Resistant Alloys and Preventive Coatings as measures used in car to provide long lasting output without any corrosion.

But - there are add on Under Body Anti Rust Coatings, generally offered during 1st or 2nd Service by Car Dealership or at time of New Car Sale. Is it Useful ?

 

Is Anti Rust Coating Useful

Instead of saying whether Useful, should we answer that - additional Anti Rust Coating does no harm in New Car. Been- Car is made up of Top Notch Precision and the fact that Car Manufacturer - already uses in Galvanized Material with Rust Resistant Alloys and Enough Preventive Coatings.

Any additional Under Body Coating, if applies does no harm. But - expecting much from the additional Coating as Solo Protection - all depends on the mindset. For most of us, we do not feel any value of additional coating (despite of low costing charges) - considering the fact that Anti Corrosion work / Metal is already used by Manufacturer. 

Still - If you feel to spend an extra small amount as been finicky for extra care - The Costing Part is generally Rs 2000 - 3000 for 3M Body Shutz Anti Rust Coating or Rs 2500 - Rs 4000 (Anti Rust Coatings as offered at Dealer Workshops) - Prices varies basis Body Design of Car - 

To Re-iterate - there is no harm, it just adds on a layer on already the existing Protection levels, but point is no real benefit of same in Brand new car

See this Video -

 

Though - to Differentiate from League - if you Intend to Hold Car for 10 Years or more. May be should go for Anti Rust Coating at the end of 4th or 5th Year. It rather involves slight complex task - been the Under Body needs to be Scrubbed, Cleaned, Degreased before applying Anti Rust Coating

Also - would rather be advisable to go in with Experts who can do detailing of Underbody - instead of only just simply spraying the Coating Chemical.

 

3M Anti Rust Coating or Dealership

Even the Dealerships use in 3M Chemical - so it really does not make Difference - from whom you get Coating Done - whether at 3M Store or at your Car Dealership. Like - Windshield Experts are the best for Windshield replacement, 3M is best for Car Body Wax, Under-Body Treatments - its there Forte Expertise.

Someone suggested me Under body coating. I was little skeptical as to why this should be done when my vehicle is little less than 2yrs. I'd now probably go for Anti rust coating during 4th year as I stay in Hyd where car hardly comes in contact with water under the body. Saved 4K.
