What is Rust Check?

Rust Check is a premier automobile body panel protectant that has been used successfully since 1973. It is a light liquid product that is applied inside body sections as a pressurized spray in order to form a protective layer against the elements to which your vehicle is subjected. LINE-X of Indianapolis is proud to be your destination for Rust Check in Indianapolis.

What separates Rust Check from the field is its ability to protect those hard-to-reach areas of your vehicle’s undercarriage. Corrosion starts and spreads from crevice areas hidden inside sections of your vehicle such as joints, folds, seams, and spot welds. Rust Check has a light liquid consistency and the active additives necessary to penetrate deeply into and protect the many vulnerable crevices found in modern vehicles.

Rust Check protects metals by displacing moisture and treating the surfaces with highly effective corrosion inhibitors. The corrosion inhibitors form an adsorbed (or bonded) layer on the metal surfaces. This microscopic layer acts like a series of tiny umbrellas, shielding the surfaces from water molecules. Just as a car battery will not work without its electrolyte, metal corrosion will not occur if moisture does not contact the metal. The unique way in which Rust Check protects from moisture allows it to stop rust before it begins, by attacking the most prominent cause of rust.

What is Coat & Protect?

Rust Check Coat & Protect is a premium vehicle undercarriage protectant. It can be thought of as a thicker version of Rust Check, with excellent adhesion and wash resistance, making it ideal for exposed undercarriage areas. Coat & Protect eliminates dripping from the undercarriage, but does not harden; it is self-healing, it won’t crack or peel, and it can be applied to both new and used vehicles. Coat & Protect is a premium product that contains a very high percentage of the same type of effective corrosion inhibitors used in Rust Check.

Used together in the Rust Check Two Product Process, Rust Check Coat & Protect and traditional Rust Check provide premium quality protection, tailored to the different environments encountered by the different areas of your vehicle.

Understanding the Rust Check Two Product Process

Rust Check utilizes a unique two-step application process designed specifically to provide highly effective corrosion protection by utilizing products appropriate to different parts of your vehicle. The protection your vehicle requires varies due to its design, and as a result one product cannot be effective in all areas. Because of this, the Rust Check Two Product Process includes:
