Special coating promises better corrosion protection
While grease protects the interior of chassis components from corrosion, paint and other coatings protect the exterior of the vehicle. One company is trying to convince the industry that it has a better way to protect underbody parts from rusting.
PRP Industries markets Corsol, an advanced metal treatment intended to replace paints or soft coats. It is sprayed on and when applied to steel or aluminum it chemically grows a plastic skin on the substrate, explains Phil Pierce, president of the company.
