Rust is like a disease of metal. When it attacks the metal becomes fragile and weak. A wrong notion about rust prevails among the mass. People often complain about rusting of metal, however, rusting takes place only on iron. Other metals may corrode, but do not rust.

It is a chemical reaction; iron gets oxidized to form a series of hydrated iron oxides. The reaction takes place in presence of water or moisture and oxygen.

Since automobile parts are mainly made of iron, they are very much susceptible to rust. Rusting car not only looks bad, but involves high risk of accidents as well.

Car Rust Treatment

Modern cars are generally equipped with better rust guard. But a lot of people buy pre-owned cars which were manufactured few years back. And there may be many old yet exotic cars in your possession. You need to take care of all the cars and keep them from rusting. Never be content with rust proof treatments that come with modern cars; make sure you apply your own car rust treatment to make your car rust free.

Organic rust remover and rust products help car owners remove rust from car. But how rusting begins?

How rusting begins?

A small hole or minor scratches on the body of the car can instantiate rusting. When the surface coating or the rust proof emulsion peels off, moisture, water and oxygen come into contact with the metal and rusting begins.

Since rust is bulky and porous in nature, it allows more amount of oxygen and moisture to penetrate inside. If the problem is not addressed timely, the entire metal body becomes rusty very soon.

Initially the small scratches may seem innocent; however, a small amount of rust spreads below the corrosion-proof emulsion. As it spreads and increases in volume, it pushes the coating off and exposes the metal to elements.<

Stainless steel is often said to be a good alternative and used in mechanical and automotive parts manufacturing. Steel has the same strength as iron and is rust-proof. However, its anti-rust nature holds true as long the rust-proof coating is there. If a small amount of coating strips off somehow, rust kicks in.

How to handle small scratches on cars to prevent rust:

Treat the broken off part immediately. Apply any protective coating if you are unable to take the car to the mechanic. Before coating, dab rust removers on the surface as you never know whether rusting has already begun or not.

To touch up, look for the paints that match the paint code of your vehicle. Alternatively you can buy scratch repair kits that are helpful to repair minor to deep scratches. If you cannot find any solution, just apply a bit of nail polish over the bare metal; it will work for the time being.

You can also paste a film tape to ensure the bare metal cannot come into contact with water, moisture and oxygen. However, you need to repair the scratches and dents as soon as possible because the film tape is not a very powerful remedy.

To fight rust, you need to concentrate on how to keep your car in showroom condition. Hence, good maintenance is the key to keep your car from rust. Scratches, dents and damages often take place due to careless parking, so be careful while parking.
