Lanoguard Treatment in Sussex
What is Lanoguard and why should you consider getting Lanoguard treatment through Balance Motor Works?
Lanoguard is great for chassis with surface rust. It has a natural affinity to ferrous metals and will bond to the metal underneath any surface rust, it acts as a barrier by hermetically sealing to the surface keeping oxygen and water out -stopping any rust from developing further.
The Lanoguard sprays are almost clear when being applied. This result in a clear coating which is a semi-matte wet look which enhances whatever colour is under it, being transparent allows you to clearly see that rust isn’t forming.
If applied over surface rust, Lanoguard will darken and reduce the vibrancy of the rust too.
Lanoguard reaches its final state around 7 to 10 days after application. Day 0 it is “oily” day 3 “soft” and final state is dry to the touch, but you know something is there. It dries to a candle-like texture.
Lanoguard protects, waterproofs and repels water instantly. A lasting, jet-wash resistant and eco-friendly barrier coating that stays in place and stops salt, grit and moisture in their tracks.
Successful treatment with Lanoguard requires removal of arch liners – this can be time consuming as fixings usually break or need drilling after many years of salt water spray.
We carry all the necessary trim clips and fixings to refit the arch liners.
A high pressure under chassis wash, combined with pressure washing the arch after removal of the liner takes some time. Then we dry the vehicle – this has to happen overnight, if you want for a small additional charge we can offer a heated dry, Lanoguard does displace moisture but still ideally applied when completely dry.
There may be areas of loose flaking rust that need treatment with wire wheel brushes. This can add 1-3 hrs depending on how bad and how much!
Then we apply Lanoguard, taking special note of box sections where we use the 360 deg lance and the pressure delivery method.
All in all you’re looking at 4-7 hrs labour and £50-70 materials inclusive cost. We need the car for 2 days to let it dry in between.
Now is a good time to get it done due to the warmer weather.
It’s a real car saver!
Take a look at some cars that we’ve used Lanoguard on, unless you’ve got a 2 post lift, a pressure washer and all the tools to remove wheels and arch liners (not to mention spare trim clips when you have to cut the old ones off) – this is a job for the professional, book in today
