Staying power is important! This is what makes Oil Gard Anti-Rust different from our competitors: Oil Gard receives many referrals from automotive shops, mechanics, and auto-body shops. They see Oil Gard Formula 2 No-Drip, or Oil Gard Classic products on their clients’ vehicles and are impressed by the staying power – despite Ontario’s mix of harsh weather and road conditions. We also receive calls from potential customers saying thinner-viscosity products applied by other Rust Protection companies don’t stand up well, and are no longer visible just a few weeks after application. The longevity of Oil Gard products, combined with expert application, ensures vehicles are protected for a full year – as designed. We appreciate the professional referrals, and the inquiries from consumers who have done their research!
Rust is a year-round problem. The time of year you choose to apply Oil Gard rust proofing doesn’t change its effectiveness for protecting your vehicle from rust. Fall is a popular time for vehicle owners to turn to Oil Gard in preparation for the freeze and thaw cycles of winter and all the road salt and sand that come with it – and that’s smart. But, as long as you have Oil Gard applied annually, your vehicle will be protected year round, so spring and summer applications are also a great idea.
Oil Gard products are designed to prevent rust AND to slow down the growth of existing rust. It’s a good idea to spot treat any rust you see with Oil Gard Aerosol until you can see an auto-body specialist.
Our products are designed to displace moisture while penetrating the pores of the metal of your car. They are water-resistant and will not be affected by wet conditions. Ask your Oil Gard Dealer about our Rain Check program!
No! We will be happy to review your warranty coverage with you. We are confident no warranties stipulate that aftermarket rust proofing will void the warranty. In fact, all vehicle manufacturers sell rust-proofing services through their dealerships, and all of them are aftermarket products. It is also good to know that there is no warranty in the marketplace that guarantees vehicles will not rust. The warranties will only provide for the repair of rust damage should it occur.
Proper access to most of the rust prone areas of today’s vehicles has been made easier by the presence of factory openings. However, to ensure complete coverage, your trained Oil Gard technician may need to drill additional access holes. Once the Oil Gard formula is applied through these holes, the technician oils around all openings and inserts caps to seal them. Your local Oil Gard Dealer can answer in detail the application on your specific vehicle. The drilling of holes will not void any existing manufacturers’ warranties.
Oil Gard offers two different rust proofing products. Our most popular is Formula 2 No Drip, because as the name implies, it does not drip. It penetrates metal seams and crevices and creeps at a slow pace. Oil Gard Classic will drip a bit in the first few hours after application, as this formula is designed to penetrate and creep quite quickly. Be assured that both Oil Gard formulas are proven and effective treatments for rust prevention.
A typical Oil Gard application costs about $130.00 with pricing adjustments for the size of a vehicle. This is a small annual investment to protect your vehicle year-round from the ravages of rust. Please ask the Oil Gard Dealer in your area to confirm actual pricing.
Some manufacturers use plastic compounds to make parts such as fenders or hoods. The application of Oil Gard to these parts is not necessary. Your local Dealer will advise you about what components of your vehicle do not need the Oil Gard rust proofing treatment.
