Combating Car Corrosion: The Battle Against New Zealand's Sea Salt Air

Living in paradise has its perks, but for our beloved cars, New Zealand's stunning coastlines come with a hidden enemy: sea salt air. This salty mist can wreak havoc on your car's paint and metal, leading to unsightly rust and a weakened body. Here at PureWax, we understand the struggle Kiwi car owners face. That's why we've developed a range of car care products specifically formulated to combat the harsh New Zealand environment.

How Does Salt Air Damage Cars?

Salt acts like a magnet for moisture, accelerating the natural process of metal oxidation, which is what we see as rust. Over time, this can cause significant damage, not only to your car's appearance but also to its structural integrity.

Combating Corrosion: Your Car's Best Defense

Don't let the sea air win the battle! Here's what you can do to protect your car:

  • Wash Regularly: Frequent washing removes salt deposits before they can start their corrosive work. Aim for a thorough wash at least once a month, more often if you live near the coast.
  • Waxing is Key: PureWax's range of high-quality waxes provides a protective barrier against salt and moisture. Our Carnuba paste wax offers long-lasting protection, while our spray-on waxes are perfect for quick touch-ups.
  • Don't Forget the Undercarriage: The undercarriage is particularly vulnerable to salt spray. Regularly hose down the underside of your car to remove salt buildup.
  • Treat Existing Rust: If you spot any rust, address it immediately. PureWax offers rust removal treatments that stop the spread and restore the metal.
