Over 40 Years Beating The Rusties

Rust Check dates back to 1970 when a Canadian pilot set out to combat the corrosion of dissimilar metals and electronic components in light aircraft.

RustiesEarly research revealed that the application of sealants, tars, waxes, and oil spray was the wrong approach to control corrosive oxidization and metallic rustout. It was quickly realized that the elimination of moisture was essential to the success of a viable rust inhibitor.

Although sealants and waxes were designed to block moisture out, testing showed that they dry out and crack, trapping moisture against the metallic surface that they were supposed to protect.

Testing also proved that oil sprays did not displace moisture and actually “floated” on water. Other inherent problems indicated that oil spray could cause ignition problems, fire and health hazards and would not bond to metal surfaces for prolonged periods of time.

It was concluded that a precise formula of various chemicals was needed to displace moisture, penetrate contaminants, creep into seams and crevices and bond to metal. Rust Check

After two years of testing, the formula known as Rust Check was developed and refined for the automotive industry.

In the fall of 1972, this unique chemically formulated rust protection system was introduced to the general public through the first Rust Check center in Hepworth, Ontario.

Since 1972, over 2 million Rust Check body protection applications have been performed.
