1-4-6-2-predotvrashhenie-korrozii.html Corrosion prevention

You can prevent emergence of corrosion. The best way – the maintenance of the car in purity. Pay special attention to the car bottom.
If you live in the region (country) where your car regularly is exposed to influence of corrosion factors – roads salt, near the sea, in regions with strong industrial pollution, acid rains, etc. – you should take special measures for corrosion prevention. During winter time douse a water stream the bottom of your car, at least, once a month and carefully wash out it after the termination of the winter period.
At a sink of the bottom of the car pay special attention to details under wings and other details hidden from eyes. Do work carefully. The simple sink, instead of careful purification of the collected dirt can accelerate rather emergence of corrosion, than prevent its emergence. Water under pressure and steam rather effectively delete the collected dirt and corrosion and active materials.
When cleaning the bottom panels of doors, amplifiers and frame details, watch that drainage openings were free, and moisture could evaporate, instead of accumulated inside, accelerating emergence of corrosion.
In avoidance of corrosion do not leave the car in damp, badly ventilated garage. It also belongs to cases when you wash the car in garage or call in in garage on wet, the covered snow or dirt the car. Even the maintenance of the car in heated garage can promote emergence of corrosion if the garage is badly ventilated and moisture does not evaporate.
Contain a paint and varnish covering and facings in a good condition. Scratches or chips on a paint and varnish covering are necessary for coating as soon as possible restoring for reduction of risk of emergence of corrosion. At metal detection without paint, address in a painting workshop.
Do not forget about a car interior. Moisture can gather under floor rugs and a carpet and also to cause emergence of corrosion. Be especially attentive, if you transport the fertilizers cleaning materials or chemicals in the car. Such materials transport in special containers and any drops or spots wash away pure water and carefully dry up.
