    Clear Anti-Corrosion Waxes

    Has anyone used 'Protection Waxes' such as these when building their chassis?

    Bilt Hamer Dynax UC -Anti-Corrosion Wax
    www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/bilt-hamer-dynax-uc-clear-anti-corrosion-wax

    Fertan
    Protewax
    https://fertan.com/product/protewax/

    …. Not for the chassis itself, but for the various bolt-on items such as front beam brace,
    Kafer bars at the rear, various other bolt-on items, e.g. steering rack bracket.
    I.e. for items that have already been painted, coated, whatever, as extra protection.

    Any thoughts?

    In the motorbike world a lot of people use ACF50 for anti corrosion which was developed for aeroplane use. Don’t know whether that would be of any benefit? Possibly have to keep topping it up though, although I imagine you’d have to with waxes also???

    Interesting thanks, it appears that ACF50 stays sticky, however another product from the same family
    called - Corrosion Block - will harden i.e. touch dry (which is what I want). hmm.

    You are right about the motorbike connection, they love ACF50.

    Yeah good shout on the ACF50 (www.acf-50.co.uk), I was incorrect about the 'stickyness' of ACF50 after application, you can polish it to 'dry' into most metal, painted and plastic surfaces.
    Anyway I bought some for my chassis build, not for the chassis itself but to protect some of the bolt-on bits.

    For bits in more exposed areas i.e. wheel arches, I plan on using Dynax UC, a clear wax, so this goes on top of paint, powder coat or whatever. https://www.bilthamber.com/dynax-uc
    As you suggest, both products need topping up, every year or so.

    No probs.

    Glad I can help in some way.

    An alternative to wax is a silicone oil wiped on by hand (not the spray on type). Silicone is very kind to rubber bushes, almost invisible, it adds a sheen and makes things water proof. and skiddy so not for tyres. It is great for rubber seals, and wiped over a paint finish any chips or damage should be protected. I used to buy mine from Wickes, it was sold as an assembly lubricant for plastic pipes. Amazon sell it, but Wickes have replaced it now, but you might have some around the house.
