|Bitumen vs Rubberised
Endrust Bituminous Based Underbody, being a thixotropic product, offers significant advantages over rubberized coatings, especially in preventing moisture entrapment and addressing factors like chipping, abrasion, and substrate flexing. Here's why it is preferable to use a thixotropic product like Endrust:
1. Minimizes Moisture Entrapment: Unlike rubberized products, bituminous-based rustproofing is less likely to trap moisture. The thixotropic properties of the coating ensure that it remains in a higher viscosity state when at rest, reducing the risk of moisture becoming trapped between the coating and the metal surface. This characteristic helps prevent the accumulation of moisture, which can contribute to corrosion over time.
2. Enhanced Protection against Chipping and Abrasion: Thixotropic coatings excel in providing superior resistance to chipping and abrasion. Endrust Bituminous Based Rustproofing's reversible viscosity change enables it to absorb and dissipate energy when subjected to impacts or friction. This exceptional resistance minimizes the risk of coating damage, preserving the integrity of the protective layer and the underlying substrate.
3. Flexibility for Substrate Movement: The flexibility offered by a thixotropic product is particularly advantageous when dealing with substrate flexing. The coating's ability to adapt to the substrate's movements, expansions, and contractions ensures that it remains intact even under dynamic conditions. This flexibility prevents the formation of cracks or gaps in the coating, safeguarding the substrate from exposure to corrosion-causing elements.
In summary, choosing a thixotropic product such as Endrust Bituminous-Based Rustproofing over rubberized coatings provides several benefits. It reduces the likelihood of moisture entrapment, which can promote corrosion. Additionally, the thixotropic properties of the product offer enhanced protection against chipping and abrasion, while also accommodating the flexing of the substrate. By opting for a thixotropic solution, you can ensure long-lasting, effective rust protection for your customers' vehicles.
