Q & A
What is RUST?
Rust is a general term for a series of iron oxides, usually red oxides, formed by the reaction of iron and oxygen in the presence of water or air moisture. Rusting is the common term for corrosion of iron and its alloys, such as steel. Given sufficient time, oxygen, and water, any iron mass eventually converts entirely to rust and disintegrates. The final red product:Fe2O3.H2O
Why should I protect my vehicle?
Crash tests have proved that the risk for severe or fatal injuries is by far higher, when travelling in a corroded vehicle.
What is the difference between Waxoyl and DINITROL?
DINITROL is a wax which dries to leave a cured soft outer layer where as Waxoyl is a mixture of wax and oil which never cures and continues to be liquid even after many months.
What happens when a stone chips the wax?
The wax stays soft underneath the surface thus allowing the wax to migrate back to cover the damage. This ability also allows for expansion and contraction of steel without cracking.
How do your products compare with Waxoyl 120-4?
DINITROL 3125 compares very favourably with Waxoyl 120-4. It has high creep getting into all the nooks and crannies. It also contains a rust inhibitor to neutralize any surface rust it comes in contact with. The big difference is Waxoyl is oil and wax mixed so it never cures and on hot days continues to drip out of any holes left and you will get an odour from the oil. DINITROL is wax and solvent so when the solvent evaporates it leaves only wax which expands and contracts with temperature changes and no smell as we use aromatic solvents. When DINITROL cures it leaves a skin and stays soft underneath allowing it to self heal in all temperatures.
How do anti-corrosion waxes protect?
Waxes work by creating a barrier to keep out both air and moisture.
What is VCI?
VCI means Volatile Corrosion Inhibitor, in other words a volatile prevention of corrosion or anticorrosive. The term VCI inhibitor is understood to mean the working of special volatile linkages into differing carrier materials. Inherent inhibitor vapour pressure causes them to evaporate out of the carrier material and to diffuse within the packaging. They are absorbed onto metal surfaces in the form of an invisible film. Once there, they provide active protection against the breakdown of the passive layer.
