As soon as a new car enters the road, its body will be exposed to a number of negative effects. Conventional paintwork quickly breaks down after being exposed to sand, stones and water, exposing the steel structure. And after a couple of years, through holes may appear in the bottom, arches and thresholds under a layer of rust. Modern cars on the factory conveyor are treated with anticorrosive material. But its validity has its limits. Therefore, the owner of the car should take timely care of additional protection of body parts. On the Russian market, you can buy a wide range of anticorrosives, they differ in technical parameters, service life and price. The recommendations of our experts will help you make the right choice of a protective composition.

Recommendations for choosing anticorrosive
Appointment. Anti-corrosion drugs are primarily distinguished by their purpose.
- Thick mastics are intended for the treatment of flat areas of the bottom, where you can work with a brush or spray gun. They form a thick coating (up to 5 mm) that successfully withstands impacts from stones and sand.
- Liquid anticorrosives are most often packaged by manufacturers in aerosol cans. With an extension tube in the form of a tube, it will not be difficult for the user to handle hard-to-reach places. Recessed cavities do not require much thickness, but the coating must be water-repellent.
Life time. When choosing a composition, it is important to pay attention not only to the price and packaging, but also to the service life. Since the treatment of the bottom and cavities is laborious, it is best to choose products that provide protection for several years. Every year, only very caring car owners can update the underbody protection.
Environmental friendliness. When working with anticorrosive under the car, do not avoid contact with skin or respiratory tract. Among modern formulations, one can find environmentally friendly preparations that do not contain harmful solvents. True, they are more expensive than traditional mastics. But it is better to use the simplest personal protective equipment (gloves, glasses, respirator) during work.
Features of application. Each manufacturer recommends adhering to the application technology developed by him.
- The most difficult stage is the preparation of the bottom surface. If there are no special problems with the removal of dust and dirt, then it will not be possible to cope with rust quickly. Therefore, you should pay attention to anticorrosive materials that can be applied to areas with surface corrosion.
- It is best to use airless spray to create an even surface. In this case, it is important to bring the anticorrosive solution with a solvent to the desired consistency. A protective layer applied with a brush will look somewhat worse outwardly. But it will be thicker, although it will take longer to dry.

After drying, the mastic also has soundproofing properties. The experts appreciated the elasticity of the film, the impact resistance of sand and stones. However, the high toxicity did not allow the Greek formulation to rise higher in our review.
Users on thematic forums praise the composition for an affordable price, good protective properties, and fast drying. But the coating crumbles over time, and there is little anticorrosive in the cans.
- acceptable price;
- soundproofing properties;
- dries quickly.
- the coating crumbles;
- small volume of anticorrosive material in cans.
RUST STOP anticorrosive can be applied directly to rust. This is what the Canadian manufacturer says in the description. But experts only admit the coating of elements with light corrosion. The advantages of anticorrosive include environmental friendliness. No smell is emitted during work, which is important for people prone to allergies. The range includes products in the form of aerosol cans and gel formulations. When anticorrosive interacts with metal, oxidation processes stop, the composition penetrates deeply into cracks.
Many users independently used Canadian anticorrosive, having previously prepared the surface. The coating successfully resists moisture, salt and other aggressive compounds. But after processing, the excess will drain from the machine for some time.
- environmental friendliness;
- simple preparation;
- resistance to moisture and salts;
- ease of use.

LIQUI MOLY Wachs-Korrosions-Schutz
The Wachs-Korrosions-Schutz compound of the famous German company LIQUI MOLY provides reliable protection of the bottom against corrosion. The drug effectively resists oxidative processes due to the presence of special inhibitors. The drug is made on the basis of wax and resins. Experts marvel at the high penetrating power and lack of fluidity. The German product is on sale in 1 liter cans. A distinctive feature of the anticorrosive is the transparency of the coating, which allows you to timely detect problem areas on the bottom. The product ranks seventh.
As for the disadvantages of the product, users are dissatisfied with the thin layer that forms in one pass. 5-6 coats are required to obtain a reliable coating.
- high penetrating power;
- resistance to moisture and salts;
- antioxidant supplements.
- many layers with intermediate exposure are required;
- high price.
The best anticorrosives for hidden cavities
The car body has many hidden cavities, inside of which it is difficult to make anti-corrosion treatment. Liquid formulations come to the rescue, when they dry they form a thin film. The following products have become worthy competitors of the classic Movil today.
Anticorrosive Tectyl ML is able to penetrate into the narrowest and most hidden places of the car body. The American product forms a light brown film, it is distinguished by elasticity and moisture repellency. Experts recommend using this compound to protect against corrosion of the internal cavities of doors, thresholds, side members. Also, the product can be used as a preservation layer before applying a mastic, for example Tectyl Bodysafe. Work with aerosol anticorrosive material should be at temperatures above + 20 ° C. Drops falling on the paintwork are removed with gasoline or solvents. Antikor is the winner of our review.
Domestic motorists have no complaints about the American train. Only the cost of a liter cartridge is quite high.
- ease of application;
- deep penetration;
- transparent coating;
- applied only at + 20 ° C.
Experts have identified two main advantages of the Canadian anticorrosive Krown 40. Since it is made on an oil basis, when it gets on the paint layer, the product does not damage the coating. The drug effectively displaces moisture, which allows you to wash the car without waiting for the anticorrosive to dry completely. The manufacturer allows processing of body parts damaged by rust. It is optimal to use the composition for treating wheel arches, sills and other hidden cavities. If Krown's technology is followed closely, the entire application process takes less than 2 hours. However, the corrosion protection should be renewed every year.
To the numerous advantages of the Canadian anticorrosive, users have also added the absence of odor, as well as excellent lubricating ability. The main disadvantage is the high price.
- effectively displaces moisture;
- does not damage paint;
- speed of processing;
- can be used as a lubricant.

A special composition for the treatment of cavities is available in the arsenal of the Swedish company Dinitrol. The 500 ml aerosol can is designated ML. The combination of unique components, corrosion inhibitors, solvents makes the coating durable. Experts note the excellent displacement of moisture from the cavities, deep penetration into the centers of corrosion. The drug stops rusting processes, while it is absolutely harmless to paint, plastic and rubber parts. Experts advise using the product for processing doors, boxes and welded seams. The composition is inferior to the leaders of the review only in the efficiency of salt displacement.
Users speak flatteringly about environmental friendliness, no runoff effect. The anticorrosive material does not leave marks on the paint.
- long-term protection against corrosion;
- effective displacement of moisture;
- harmless to paint and seals;
- environmental friendliness.
- high price;
- low salt resistance.
LIQUI MOLY Hohlraum-Versiegelung
The anti-corrosion coating LIQUI MOLY Hohlraum-Versiegelung has a self-healing effect. The German manufacturer recommends it for the protection of cavities and car welds. A thin elastic film tightens minor injuries, preventing the penetration of water and salts. The optimum coating thickness is within 200-300 microns, the air temperature should be from 15 to 25 ° C. The experts highly appreciated the transparency of the protection, therefore, the appearance of foci of corrosion can be detected in a timely manner.
Users in reviews report a slight odor reminiscent of shoe polish. The product has good hiding power, there is a lot of it in a half-liter can. Of the shortcomings, a high price is noted
- self-healing effect;
- good covering ability;
- normal fluidity.
- high price.
The Russian company VELV produces the ageless classics for the fight against corrosion Movil-5E. Experienced motorists are well aware of all the advantages and disadvantages of this composition. Comparing with modern anticorrosives, experts speak positively about harmlessness, inertness to paintwork, good penetrating ability and effective water displacement. But salt quickly destroys a thin layer of Movil, after which pockets appear on body parts. Therefore, the drug closes our review.
Domestic motorists are generally satisfied with Movil, despite some shortcomings. First of all, users are attracted by the affordable price and ease of use. There are complaints about the tube, which cannot be installed in the spray head.
- affordable price;
- does not destroy paint;
