BH Dynax UC longevity and auto foam

What’s the longevity of UC in a wheel arch? How long should you wait between coats? And is Auto Foam at 4% going to reduce its longevity at all?

I would also be interested to know as currently I favor the bitumen style undercoat as it remains flexible and its a bugger to remove so its quite durable

Firstly it would be difficult to give an accurate estimate without knowing what, when and how often your car is being used as if it only does 4000 mile a year it's going to last longer than a 12000 mile a year daily.

This is only my opinion but I'd say that autofoam won't have any major effect on durability gives at 4% it us LSP safe.

The recommendation for cavity wax, underseal etc protection is to reapply on a yearly basis so if guess it would last this long.

I have it in my arches though I'm still restoring the car but what I can say is that on a 0 miler stored in a garage it will last for years and years

Yeah its for my arches too, and maybe over the jack points after jacking it up.

And in answer to your question. 12k miles annually.

How long did you leave between coats, during application?

I still think yearly reapplication should be fine. On your jack points if you have to Jack the car up at any point this might take some of it off so I'd reapply if that was the case.

I put about half a dozen coats on mine as it was off the road probably doing 2 a day leaving an hour or so between the two coats but that was because I was doing other things. I think about 30-60 mins was the recommendation though could be wrong.

Somewhere on here there was a post by Polished Bliss which showed the results of UC on the wheel arches. It was a few years ago but from what I can remember it lasted quite a long time
