3M Anti Rust Coating in New Car. Is Anti Rust Treatment Useful, Myth and Reality with Prices, Benefits of additional Coating on Car
Here we will demystify your Doubts on Anti Rust Coating including Utility, Benefits, Pros and Cons
A Car Body is made up of several Metals with
Rusting is layman language is Corrosion and Corrosion is what the direct reaction of Iron and its Alloys when comes in contact of Water or Air Moisture. So, essentially to make it simple - Any Iron material when exposed to both oxygen and water is bound to rust - unless a preventive coating is applied on to it.
See the Rusting observed by user, when he went to bought a car and casually checked underbody to find Rusting sign Visible
So, prima facie it seems that Anti Rust Coating is what an essential part, But is it actually Required
Do note that a car when Manufactured in Plant is made with
Galvanization is basically using Advanced Zinc Coating on Car Metals. Zinc is what Anti Rust and these highly specialized coating prevent car under-body from Rusting.
Enough Protection done through Industry approved Coating Solutions by Car Manufacturer so that Car Under-Body, Doors, Boot, Body Panel do not get impacted by Rusting. Also, Galvanization is done with Rust Resistant Alloys to provide long lasting Output without any Corrosion.
Now - enough Protection in form of Anti Rust Coating is been done which can be offered for all regular drive conditions at Manufacturer end, and as such no need for further add on coating
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.
For Areas with Moderate Weather, Rainfall - there is absolute no need for Anti Rust Coating. Its just waste of Money !!
But, for Coastal Area Regions or Areas with Heavy Rainfall
Any additional Under Body Coating, if applies does no harm. further add on Coating (if offers you peace of mind) then go for it. But, Do note that your Car Under-Body is already given enough protection by Manufacturer end and expecting much from the additional Coating as Solo Protection may just be raising the expectations too much
The Brand New Car which got Rusting was due to in Contact of Water for longer period of time. Had the car got this Dealer Level Anti Rust Coating too - it would not have made much difference in getting Rust developed on it.
Still - If you feel to spend an extra small amount as been finicky for extra care. The Costing Part for Anti Rusti Coating is :-
|3M Anti Rust Treatment with 5 Year Warranty||Hatchback||Rs 3000 - 3500|
|Sedan / SUV Cars||Rs 3500 - 5000|
|Luxury Cars||Rs 5000 - 7000|
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
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.
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.
Prices Varies based on Models at 3M.

Do not miss to check on Warranty T&C - comes with 5 year Warranty
I got a Wurth brand undercoating done for my New Hyundai Venue for 3400 (incl. taxes) at Advaith Hyundai, Bangalore. They are giving a warranty of 5 years.
I AM GOING TO HAVE WAGON R ZXI MT.Dealer is pitching for Extended Warranty and Anti Rust Coating.Kindly assist.
Congratulations on your new car, drive safe.
Yeah I recommend Extended Warranty if there is a cover on some of the wear and tear on your vehicle parts, especially like the Shield of Trust from Hyundai. And I got it for free (costs 6K) by negotiating it for some lame seat covers. I suggest you to negotiate it for some dummy accesories which they're offering for free if possible.
Anti rust coating , if they're quoting it for less than 3K with the warranty then it is a win situation for you.
Happy helping cheers ??
I purchased underbody coating (due to their relentless pitching) before delivery of my Honda Amaze vx CVT
Now for first service they are pitching silencer rust coating 1500rs and door internal panel protection 3000rs.
Are these coatings necessary for a new car.
Thanks for the information. I have got one of my car underbody coated by 3M with their 5-year warranty coating. However, they have a policy that if the car underbody is already rusted the company do not provide the 5-year warranty. The technician properly cleaned the underbody and removed the rust and then applied the coating. So I think better to go for underbody when it is still not rusted if you want 5-year warranty on same. 3M does not provide warranty if underbody is already rusted.
I have 5 years used Maruti Suzuki Ciaz. I want to do underbody coating for my car.
I have seen your video on YouTube regarding the same. I stay in Pune, Maharashtra. Where I have good underbody coating in my city? Any recommendations?
I saw in market, they are directly applying Anti Rust paint, without removing existing rust particles. They told me that, no need to remove existing rust, this anti rust material will take care of that.
hello sir we live in an area where due to heavy rainfall sometimes the water logging there is the problem of water logging so we must go with anti rust coating or not
As the blog suggest there is no harm of having a extra Coating on the car underbody. Well there was a good point mentioned in the blog that "It rather involves slight complex task - been the Under Body needs to be Scrubbed, Cleaned, Degreased before applying Anti Rust Coating" in that case most (95%) the Service station don't care about scrubbing and Degreasing the Underbody . They spray a Black colour liquid on the underbody which we as the End user never know what Chemical is that...
But if company like 3M is giving you a 5 year Warranty then you should surely Go for it ...
I've applied anti-rust coating on my car and its better than ever. If you live in coastal areas, its a must have.
I have purchased a Honda city vx model and want it's under Chasis coating to be done. I am from Chennai (9962837310)
Quite informative. I justpurchased a toyota Yaris. kindly advice - what do i need to do to preserve the paint sheen -do i get a PPF done or do i get a ceramic coating?
Dear sir, I would request you to connect on(9654061166) for any sort of car related query and specially for best in class offer whether is PPF or any coating .
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.
Many Thanks Sir. I am taking delivery of a car this week and had planned to go for anti rust coating at 3M Car Care. You really saved my 3500 Rs.
