The 2 Types of Corrosion And How To Avoid Them
Have you ever wondered about the corrosion on your car’s bodywork? What it means and how bad the damage to your car’s surface is?
Before anything else, it might be best to acquaint ourselves and get to know the two types of corrosion – the surface corrosion and the through-body corrosion.
In order to understand the two types, it should be remembered that a car’s bodywork has 4 surface levels – metal body, primer, paint and clear coat. The surface corrosion is deemed as a shallow type since it touches only up to the paint and primer. This is usually caused by stones, gravel and other road debris being flicked from a tire of the vehicle in front of you to your car’s surface. It could also be due to a crack or a flaw in the car’s paint work. Though the corrosion is shallow, this shouldn’t be taken lightly as this allows water to penetrate under the clear coat and the paint.
The second type of corrosion is the through-body corrosion. This is a much more serious and deeper damage than the first type since this touches the metal body. More often than not, this damage leads to rusting when the metal reacts with water to form rust through the oxidation process. When rust happens there’s a structural weakening in the metal body. The worst case scenario, the rusting is so severe that safety becomes a potential concern
Now that we’ve established how serious these corrosion can be, wouldn’t it be prudent to prevent them from happening in the first place?
Nano Ceramic Coating
The best defense against corrosion is to ensure that a car’s surface is fully protected. In addition to the clear coat, which provides insufficient protection, it is advisable to give a car’s surface an additional coating.
MaskPro Nano Ceramic Coating is a first-rate protective coating adapted from Japan’s nanotechnology. It is an application and a by-product of decades of research on nanotechnology. How does it work and how does it perfect the job of protecting a car’s surface?
Simply put, the nano ceramic coating’s liquid polymer seals in gaps and pores. It creates a stronger bond and cure with a car’s surface than waxing. The result is a glossier finish which makes the surface hydrophobic and mud resistant. The car’s surface also gains a 10H hardness scale making it scratch resistant.
Given that MaskPro Nano Ceramic Coating gives a car’s surface hydrophobic and scratch resistant properties, it’s clear that it provides the best defense against rust and corrosion regardless of the type.
