Lanolin is a fantastic corrosion inhibitor.
Lanolin is a unique organic substance derived from the wool grease coating on raw sheep wool. It is an all natural, incredibility effective substance that acts as a moisture barrier and lubricant.
WoolWax® Undercoating Formula is a lanolin based corrosion inhibitor developed solely to protect the undercarriages of automobiles and trucks. Our lanolin is blended with other proprietary agents to provide long term corrosion protection. WoolWax® will provide long term protection (annual application) against salt, liquid calcium chloride, brine, and all other ice control agents that are being used by municipal departments.
Most other undercoating products contain up to 70% solvents, which make these products very thin and watery. Without a very thick viscosity, these products break down and wash off quickly. WoolWax® is solvent free and very thick and viscous. It applies like a heavy latex paint, which makes it very resistant to wash-off. WoolWax® does not dry. It remains soft and pliable and continues to be active, migrating into all the inaccessible areas.
The people that run the WoolWax® company have been in the vehicle undercoating business for a very long time. We work very closely with our 400+ undercoaters thoughout the USA and Canada to constantly develop and revise our undercoat formulas to keep up with the ever changing harsh salt and brine products that are being applied to our roads today. Our competitors boast about their "70 year old film undercoat product". The snow and ice control industry changes, and so must the products used to protect the vehicles that travel these chemical coated roadways.
Why are we in this vehicle undercoating business ? Of course to see our company and those of our partners thrive and be successful. But we won't sell a product that we don't believe is the very best. Better than all the rest. We believe that if we offer the very best performing auto and truck undercoating, the business will take care of itself. We are always "tweaking" the formulation and working on issues brought to our attention by our partner Undercoaters and individual end-users. Please don't ever hesitate to contact us with any comments. We sincerely appreciate anything you can tell us that will help us provide the best vehicle undercoating on the planet.
