Krown Rust Control vs. Electronic Rust Control? There is a Clear Winner.

When the air hurts your face, you know it’s winter. When your car suffers from rust and corrosion your car knows it’s winter. You wouldn’t face the frigid and messy days that winter can bring without a coat, so don’t let your car go out in this weather without a little protection as well.

All that salt, sand, ice and snow can wreak havoc on your vehicle. Without something to protect it from these elements, corrosion and rust will take hold and grow, leaving your car at risk and shortening its life. With the arrival of winter, your car will no doubt be sporting winter tires, new wipers, cold weather fluids and an emergency car kit. Make sure you take care of the body of your car with Krown Rust Control.

Krown Rust Control is a spray application like none other. The application is applied by a trained technician and ensures that every corner and crack on the underside of your car is coated and will create a moisture resistant bond. Krown Rust Control will continue to repel water throughout the year.

House of Auto Details is one of Halifax’s best-known vehicle rust-proofing companies. Many consumers use a service like theirs, looking to keep their cars rust-free for longer. That said, the question really is: does rust-proofing really do what’s claimed for it

Like a lot of questions, the answer is “it depends.” There are two different ways of rust-proofing in the aftermarket: oil sprays, and electronic rust control, and they have different reputations.

Oil sprays are the most common way of rust-proofing a vehicle, and they’ve proven to be effective. Oil and water don’t mix, so salty slush and water have a hard time sticking to a car that’s been rust-proofed this way. This kind of treatment has a second point in favour: rusting paradoxically accelerates in the spring and summer, as warm, humid air reaches salt deposited in winter. Oil sprays “creep” into the nooks and seams of your car where unprotected cars hide dried salt that stays for months before being reactivated by humidity.

A recent trend has been to avoid oil-based treatments and use electronic rust control. Progressive companies like ours have stuck with oil, but some consumers are nervous about the effect of petrochemicals on the environment. Electronic rust control promises to be perfectly clean and, let’s face it, the whole idea of plugging a little device to your vehicle and stopping rust dead does seem like it’s the way of the 21st century.

Unfortunately, there’s little evidence that this method actually works. A Canadian company with expertise in testing car-related products came to the conclusion that one brand of electronic rust control device provided no more protection than going without rust-proofing at all.

It’s not just what’s in Krown Rust Control that makes it superior to other undercoating rust systems, it’s what isn’t in it that makes it a leader. The Krown formula is solvent free and contains no toxins. Krown does not contaminate soil, harm our waters and lakes or poison our wildlife. This makes Krown Rust Control not only good for your car but for the environment.

Which way you choose is up to you, but if you decide to go with the long-established king of rust-proofing treatments, contact us at 902-404-1500.
