Stop Rust Before it Starts

When rust takes hold of your automobile, not only is your finish ruined, but vital parts of the car can be negatively affected -- including the very structural integrity. With Rust Check, we can stop rust before it ever starts, which is the only way to keep it at bay. Ask us for rust-proofing services when you come in.

Stopping Rust for 40+ Years

Rust Check, Canada’s #1 rust-control organization, was founded in 1972. Largely because of its effectiveness, more than 270 Rust Check centres have been established worldwide so far.


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.

Crevice areas hidden inside body sections, such as joints, folds, seams, and spot welds therein are the places where corrosion starts and spreads from. Rust Check has the light liquid consistency and the active additives necessary to penetrate deeply into and protect the many vulnerable crevices found in today’s vehicles.

Rust Check protects metals by displacing moisture and treating the surfaces with highly effective corrosion inhibitors. The corrosion inhibitors form an adsorbed (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.


Why Rust Check Is Preferred Over Sealants

  • Firstly, Rust Check penetrates welded seams, crevices and provides excellent protection for these corrosion-prone areas. Sealants are not as effective in protecting these vital areas.
  • Rust Check does not require shiny clean metal surfaces for good adhesion and is effective on both used and new vehicles. While Rust Check will not reverse existing corrosion damage, it will drastically reduce its progression.
  • Rust Check is a unique electro-chemical compound that contains self-healing properties.
  • Rust Check dispels moisture trapped in seams and crevices; sealants usually trap moisture in these corrosion-prone areas.
  • Rust Check, unlike sealants, is non-drying; it remains mobile and will never dry, crack or peel.
  • Rust Check lubricates as it protects against corrosion.
  • Rust Check, unlike sealants, does not contain any offensive odours or potentially toxic petroleum solvents.
  • Rust Check will not damage painted surfaces and any over spray can be easily cleaned off.
  • Rust Check is completely reapplied each and every year to maintain a high on-going level of protection. Sealants usually are just inspected or touched-up.
  • Rust Check offers annually renewable warranties with unlimited mileage and transferable ownership for new and qualified used vehicles.
