3M Cavity Wax Plus

Protect Repairs from Corrosion with 3M Cavity Wax Plus

The new 3M Cavity Wax Plus uses a corrosion-inhibiting formula that will wick into tight seams to protect welded areas and enclosed cavities with a film that will not harden and remain flowable to self-heal if scratched or abraded.

3m-cavity-waxIt’s lurking behind nearly every collision repair made – the potential for salt and corrosive chemicals, moisture or damaged coatings from stone chips to allow corrosion to attack the repaired area. It’s one of the primary causes of future vehicle damage and customer come-backs.

A recent 3M survey of body shops found that a large majority of repair technicians are not using any cavity wax to prevent post-repair corrosion, and many who do use it don’t always apply it in critical areas where they should. In addition, many report that their shop’s equipment doesn’t always work correctly, is too bulky to reach all areas of the repair or requires extensive clean-up time. The cosmetic consequences of poor corrosion protection can deter return business, but more importantly, the safety implications of failing to protect structural parts can be dangerous. OEMs and industry associations alike realize the importance of cavity wax and recommend its use in numerous repair situations.

But there is a simple, cost-effective step that can help preserve the life of the repair and the safety of the vehicle: application of an anti-corrosion agent like the new 3M Cavity Wax Plus.

The new 3M Cavity Wax Plus uses a corrosion-inhibiting formula that will wick into tight seams to protect welded areas and enclosed cavities with a film that will not harden and remain flowable to self-heal if scratched or abraded. When used with the 3M Cavity Wax Plus Applicator Wand Kit, it will deliver the right amount of flow and wicking to provide consistent and uniform protection for the repair.

The easy-to-use aerosol can eliminates the need for using antiquated and messy bulk spray equipment. The wand kit includes three different length wands, two of which offer a 360-degree spray pattern for more complete coverage. The wand kit includes an 8-inch wand for easy access to areas such as radiator support seams, and two long wands (24 inches and 34 inches) to access enclosed areas such as frame rails and rocker panels. The wands are very small in diameter so they can be easily inserted into small holes and tightly formed structures. The wands can be easily cleaned by inverting the can and spraying until the wand is clean.
