One company whose products we regularly stock is the automobile chemical company Sika, which aim to defend your car against unwanted rust and salt erosion. Sika are specified as a tier one supplier to the worlds leading car manufacturers, all after market products are manufactured to the same tier one, original equipment (OE) specifications.
We recently wrote specifically about Sika’s Sika-Gard brand, a range of protective coating products that is useful for car bodies. However, Sika also offer a range of other products for other purposes. Here is more information about our full range of Sika products that we offer here at Rustbuster.
As mentioned in our previous blog, Sika-Gard is an effective but affordable range of protective coating solutions for the body of your car. The Sika-Gard range covers three different purposes. The first of these is underbody coating, with the likes of the Sika-Gard 6060 providing a fast and easy-to-apply protective film on non-visible areas of your car such as the underbody.
For more visible areas of your car such as door sills, wheel arches and aprons, the Sika-Gard range also includes two rubber-based products to product them against stone chips: the -6440 Grey and the -6770 Black. These are easy to paint over if necessary and are also available in aerosols.
Finally, the Sika-Gard range offers a set of high-penetration cavity waxes to protect concealed cracks and crevices in doors, bonnets, trunks and car wings. This set also includes a more durable wax, the -6250, which can resist temperatures of up to 180° C and is especially designed to withstand the extreme temperatures close to your engine. All three types of Sika-Gard product can be applied using Sika’s UBC Plus gun.
Sika’s excellent range also includes the Sikaflex brand which covers a handy set of adhesives. We stock two main Sikaflex products. The first of these is the 521 UV, a bonding agent that can be applied directly to metal or a suitably primed service to bond new joints or seal weld repairs. The second Sikaflex product we stock is the 555, a windscreen adhesive designed specifically for fitting and repairing glass.
Both of these adhesives are primerless, but can be prepared using a cleaning and activating agent such as Sika’s AD-PREP surface primer, which is excellent at cleaning all metals and plastic to enhance adhesion.
One other product we stock worth mentioning is the SikaLastomer 710, a permanently flexible non-drying sealant which can be used for sealing rubber windscreen seals. This comes in black or white and can be used on all non-bonded windscreens that have a rubber frame.
It should be clear from the above that Sika supply a great selection of products, all of which offer excellent protection for your car. So why not get hold of them here at Rustbuster?
