Are you tired of dealing with rust and corrosion on your vehicle?

Then look no further than Lanocare, our lanolin-based anti-rust treatment that provides long-lasting protection against the elements. In this guide, we’ll look at how long Lanocare lasts, how often you need to reapply it and the steps you can take to ensure maximum rust prevention.

Understanding Lanocare: An Overview

Before we cover the specifics of Lanocare, let’s first recap on what Lanocare is and how it works. Lanocare is a waxy, lanolin-based product that forms a protective barrier on metal surfaces, preventing rust and corrosion. Lanolin, derived from sheep’s wool, has been used for centuries as a non-toxic lubricant and rust inhibitor.

The Benefits of Lanocare

  • Lanocare offers several advantages over traditional rust prevention methods. Here are some key benefits:
  • Long-lasting Protection
Lanocare provides a durable shield against rust and corrosion, ensuring that your vehicle stays protected for longer.
  • Environmentally Friendly
Lanocare is biodegradable, making it marine-safe and friendly to both the environment and animals.
  • Easy Application
Applying Lanocare is a breeze. With minimal prep work and clear instructions, you can quickly and efficiently protect your vehicle from rust.
  • Jet-wash Resistant
Unlike many other rust prevention products, Lanocare is resistant to high-pressure jet washing, ensuring that it stays in place even after cleaning your vehicle.
  • Unattractive to Rodents
The coating is only a few microns thick and the ingredients have no nutritional value, so vermin will leave it alone.

How Long Does Lanocare Last?

The longevity of Lanocare’s rust prevention capabilities depends on various factors, including the application, environmental conditions and the level of exposure to corrosive elements during use. Generally, Lanocare is designed for yearly or seasonal applications. When applied correctly, it can provide protection for up to a year – and in some cases longer.

To ensure continuous protection, we recommend inspecting your Lanocare coating every 9 to 12 months. These regular inspections can help identify any areas that may require reapplication or additional attention and will help maintain the integrity of the protective barrier. Proper application should extend the lifespan of your vehicle’s underbody.

How to Apply Lanocare for Optimal Results

To get the most out of Lanocare and maximise its rust prevention capabilities, proper application is crucial. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to apply Lanocare effectively:

  • Preparation
Before applying Lanocare, ensure that the surface is clean and free of loose debris or flaking rust. Use a wire brush or a close-up jet wash to remove any loose particles.
  • Dry the Surface
Allow the surface to dry completely before applying Lanocare. Moisture can interfere with the bonding process and reduce the effectiveness of the product.
  • Spray Application
For large surface areas requiring general protection, we recommend using the Lanocare spray. Hold the sprayer, in spray, not jet mode, at a distance and apply a thin coating of Lanocare evenly across the surface. For hard-to-reach areas, spray Lanocare onto a cloth and use it to reach all the nooks and crannies.
  • Grease Application
If you need enhanced protection for specific areas or parts, such as nut and bolt heads, Lanocare grease is an excellent solution. Apply the grease directly onto the desired areas using your finger, a cloth or a brush. The grease can also be melted and painted onto surfaces that require extra protection against harsher environments.
  • Wipe off Excess
After applying Lanocare, wipe off any excess product with a clean cloth. This will ensure a smooth, waxy finish that is not sticky to the touch.
  • Drying Time
Lanocare typically takes around 7 days to reach the full curing stage. During this time, it will dry to a candle-like texture and will thence ready to provide optimal protection against rust and corrosion.

Checking and Maintaining Lanocare’s Effectiveness

To ensure that Lanocare continues to provide optimal rust prevention, regular checks and maintenance are essential. Here are some key steps to follow:

  • Regular Inspections
Perform a thorough inspection of your vehicle’s underbody every 9 to 12 months. Look for any signs of rust, or areas where the protective barrier may have worn off.
  • Preventive Maintenance
As part of your regular car care routine, clean your vehicle’s underbody to remove any dirt or debris that could compromise the effectiveness of Lanocare.
  • Reapplication
If you notice any areas that require reapplication, follow the steps mentioned earlier to apply a fresh coat of Lanocare. Remember to clean the surface before reapplying.
