Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How much preparation does Waxoyl Professional Corrosion Prevention require?

A: Waxoyl Professional Corrosion Prevention requires minimal surface preparation. We recommend pressure washing the underbody and using a degreaser to remove unwanted material and allow Hardwax to bond directly to the metal or paint surfaces. It is very important to remove any clumps of dirt, flaking paint or rust, and anything else that may later come off the vehicle exposing the surface below. Waxoyl will permanently bond to the surface it is applied to, which only works if the surface it is applied to stays on the vehicle!

Q. Is Waxoyl Professional Corrosion Prevention difficult to apply?

A. On every level the Waxoyl Professional Corrosion Prevention System has been designed for ease of use and with minimal training almost anyone can apply Waxoyl Professional Corrosion Prevention. The simple to to follow application procedure ensures a thorough application every time and require no drilling of holes. The guns require no adjustment except the air pressure to them. Simply pour the product into the guns and spray.

Q. What tools are needed to apply the Waxoyl Professional Corrosion Prevention system?

A. A shop environment with a lift, good lighting, compressed air with adjustable pressure and the Waxoyl Professional Application tools are all that is needed for professional application. An exhaust fan may be needed for heavy applications if there is minimal circulation. There are a few different options for application guns that address the needs of different applicators. Rovers North sells starter kits, Wax1, Wax2, Wax3 & Wax4, that meet the needs of a variety of different users. We also have continuous flow inline airless systems for use with 58 liter kegs. Contact us at macmotors@tciway.tc to find which kit is right for you.

Q. Is Waxoyl Professional messy to apply?

A. The Waxoyl Professional Corrosion Prevention system can be applied with very little mess; The gentlemen of Waxoyl Professional often give demonstrations wearing a white dress shirt! By following a few simple precautions there can be little or no clean and no impact on the shop environment!
To avoid making a mess, use a funnel to fill the guns and always bring cold product up to temperature before filling (see tech tips for application). Do not squeeze the tins into the guns, if the product is too cold to flow easily from the tin then it wont apply well. Place in hot water for a few minutes. Waxoyl Professional 120-4, the cavity treatment, is clear and makes little mess and cleans up easily. Hardwax is black and if applied carelessly is potentially messy. To cut down on over-spray we recommend when ever possible spraying in towards the center of the vehicle, instead of standing under the vehicle spraying out towards the surroundings. Keep the spray tip relatively close to the vehicle (within a foot and a half) to avoid fine spray settling before it makes contact. When applying to the edges of the underbody, keep the spray tip close and inside the underbody. Spraying from far away and outside the underbody can lead to over-spray on the vehicle. Use a ground tarp when using the high flow HW-98 gun to apply Hardwax on larger jobs (such as chassis vehicles) as it will pick up over-spray that settles on the ground, a ground tarp is normally not needed when using the HRS gun with the K-2 wand.

Q. Does Waxoyl Professional Corrosion Prevention make the vehicle smell after application?

A. Typically there is no smell within a day or two after application. However if Waxoyl Professional 120-4 is over applied the smell can linger for much longer as puddles take longer for the solvent to evaporate. See the Tech Tips for application.

Q. Does Waxoyl Professional Corrosion Prevention make the vehicle smell after application?

A. The drying time is highly dependent on room temperature, humidity, air flow and the film thickness. Under ideal conditions (good air circulation, 68 F) the film can be handled after 6 hours.

Q. Are Waxoyl Professional products environmentally friendly?

A. Absolutely, all Waxoyl Professional products are produced under the strictest standards of environmental safety. Think of it this way: Waxoyl Professional products make vehicles last substantially longer and dramatically increase owner satisfaction, both of which keep vehicles out of junk yard. What could be more environmentally friendly than that? But, like any chemical, Waxoyl Professional products need to be treated with care and disposed of properly.

Q. Does Waxoyl Corrosion Prevention come with any guarantees?

A. No, Waxoyl is trusted by leading manufacturers the world over. Visit our "Approved by" section and judge us by the company we keep. While the product is perfect, human application is not and imperfect application can lead to imperfect protection. For this reason many of our application centers choose to offer guarantees and we encourage this. It is always a good idea to have vehicles inspected regularly to catch any areas that may have been missed in the initial application before any problems occur.

Q. I only want cavity protection. OR I only want underbody protection. Why should I use both?

A. We strongly recommend using both cavity and underbody products. If the environment is harsh enough to warrant one product the other product is necessary too. Using one product but not the other is like locking the drivers side door but not the passenger side: It just allows rust to start on the other side.
