When you get a new vehicle, you want to keep it in top condition for as long as possible, and undercoating is a great way to do so. Undercoating will protect the underside of your vehicle from rust, damage and the harsh effects of snow and seasonal weather.
Dealerships are sometimes guilty of trying to upsell this service at a high price point, but it’s actually quite easy to apply this same protection to your car yourself. Inventory Express carries a large selection of lubrication products to help you keep your car protected from the elements – all at a better price point than getting the service done at your local dealership or service station.
What is Undercoating?
Undercoating is a thick rubberized coating that is sprayed on underneath your car, on the frame of the vehicle. This heavy-duty rubberized compound is used to protect the undercarriage of your car from chemicals and moisture that can lead to rusting.
What’s the Difference Between Undercoating & Rustproofing?
There is a common misconception that undercoating is the same as rustproofing, but they are in fact quite different.
- Undercoating is more specific to the frame of your vehicle, protecting against moisture, chemicals and stone wear-and-tear that can cause long-term damage.
- Rust proofing, on the other hand, aims at protecting the body of your vehicles. It is sprayed on either by drip oil spray or a dripless oil spray – each has their own benefits, depending on what you are protecting against.
Why is Undercoating So Important?
Undercoating can provide significant protection to the underside of your vehicle that typically gets missed during regular maintenance or can be missed by regular rainwater. Undercoating will protect the exposed parts of your vehicle from heat, stress, grime and damaging rust from forming.
