Rust really is our enemy here at Rustbuster due to the catastrophic impact that it can have on the appearance or even the performance of cars if not treated properly. For that reason, we are delighted to promote products that are great at protecting cars from this problem.
We have regularly written about the car body repair products of the automobile chemical company Sika lately, which are excellent at defending cars against unwanted corrosion by rust or salt. In particular, we have explored Sika’s Sika-Gard brand, their great range of protective coating products.
However, there’s no point in our promoting Sika-Gard products if we don’t tell you about the right equipment to apply them! With that mind, here’s some more information about the application equipment Sika provides in order to apply its Sika-Gard range.
Sika SCP Gun
Sika’s SCP (stone chip protection) Gun is a high-end pneumatic pressure cup gun suitable for spraying Sika products such as their underbody coating Sika-Gard 6060 and their stone chip protection coatings Sika-Gard -6440 and -6470 directly out of a 1 litre can.
One can use the SCP Gun by placing the can directly into the gun’s pressure tank. Handily, the gun lets you adjust the flow of the material out of the can, while a unique pressure control valve on the gun allows you to maintain a constant air pressure in the tank. That allows the gun to produce a smooth and even spray which is perfect for protecting visible parts of your car.
Sika CW Gun
The cavity wax alternative to the SCP Gun, Sika’s CW Gun is a high-pressure gun best used for spraying Sika-Gard cavity waxes such as the Sika-Gard -6220 and the Sika-Gard -6250.
Like the Sika’s SCP Gun, the cavity wax is filled directly into the gun’s pressure tank for spraying onto your car with the amount of wax adjusted by an adjustable flow control. The result is a uniform wax film which will have no problem protecting cracks in the body of your car.
The CW Gun also comes equipped with a 1200mm long hose and a hook probe, making cavity or surface applications a doddle.
Sika UBC/UBC Plus Gun
Similar to Sika’s SCP Gun, this easy-to-use vacuum gun can be used to spray Sika-Gard’s underbody and stone chip protection coatings like Sika-Gard -6470 out of a 1 litre can. However, on the UBC Gun the gun is screwed directly onto the can rather than the can being inserted into the gun’s pressure tank. With its adjustable nozzle, this gun is excellent at allowing you to return your car to its original factory finish.
Sika’s UBC Plus Gun takes the UBC Gun a step further. This gun is capable of spraying all of Sika-Gard’s car protection coatings, including cavity wax, by replacing the gun’s spray nozzle with a 900m long hose. The extra small diameter of the hose allows you to save time inserting it into your car’s body by removing the need to enlarge existing holes.
As you can see, Sika’s application equipment makes applying their Sika-Gard car protection coatings an absolute cinch. So, why not contact us here at Rustbuster so you can get a hold of them yourself?
