Any experience of spray or brush on under body and wheel arch corrosion protection sprays? ACF50? I’ve used Dimitri ML previously brushed on everything. Wondering if there’s something clear and really aimed at application to exterior surfaces.

Dynax UC is what you want - unsure how clear it is though. Got some somewhere, I thought it was slightly opaque

Thanks. Good on ally as well as fixings etc Shirish?
Won’t be on display. Thinking of taking the under trays off spydy and treating things early for maximum longevity/protection,

No idea on what it will do for ally, but works well on steel.  Used on all of my ‘barges’ over the past 10 years or so.

 

XCP Rust Blocker is also rated, although I don’t think as long lasting.  Again, no idea what it will do for ally.

Thanks Shirish. UC seems to be highly rated stuff. Gotta be worth a go 👍 Be nice to see what’s under those trays in any case

Email Bilt Hamber and ask. Pete Hamber is a top bloke.

Alternatively, there are probably tech documents on their site.

UC is pretty clear.

Bilt Hamber Dynax is what I use for the underbody wheel arches etc. For the alloy bits under the engine eg casings rocker covers, gearbox etcI use Dinitrol corroheat, it’s clear and resists heat.

As mentioned the BH stuff is pretty good, I use this a lot:

Its the clear version that is not quite fully clear but looks better than the black and brown stuff. It does almost dry to the touch so doesn't attract too much crap to stick to it but not 100%

I also quite like Valvoline Tectyl 506, pretty close to the factory coating used back in the day.

these look handy products, thanks for the links :) being as I use the Integrale throughout winter (with the odd IB day thrown in) this should help nicely 👍 Anyone know if the Bilt Hamber 5L comes with a spray trigger like the (more pricey) Lanoguard?

Used ACF-50 last winter and appears to have done a good job but the spray trigger is carp under the car and more of it runs down my arms than sprays to the underside.

If you're using Firefox, you can add the Facebook Container app to stop the Facebook tracking cookie doing stuff like this (and all its other harvesting).

This is great stuff for anything that needs protection: magnesium transmission cases etc. A lot of specialists use it.

I use ACF 50 on winter bikes but the purple finish isn't for everyone. Does the job though it is not what I would use for underarch protection.
