Dynax & Rust Underbody Prevention

BH, I see that you do quite a few rust proofing products under the Dynax range, for use on the underside of vehicles, etc.

I have been looking at a competitors product called Lanoguard. I like the fact (a lot!) that it seems to be an easy spray-on application (Happy to top up annually if all it takes is 30 mins) and that it is clear. I really, really do not like the price however at around £30+ litre, delivered.

Can any of the BH products, which seem to be substantially cheaper in 5 litres quantity, be used in a similar 'easy spray-on' way?

Your thoughts appreciated.

Yeah, Dynax UC is what you need if you want near to transparent. Pete (Hamber) is very approachable by phone or email (technical@bilthamber.com) if you need to discuss your requirements in more detail. I've had nothing but great service from BH, even including sending out replacement products when they agreed an item was not up to their usual high standards.

Here's a thread regarding what products I used and how I used them, I can't recommend their products enough.

Conversely I've been looking at switching to Lanoguard. It's definitely not cheap but the Dynax UC doesn't really stand up to high wear areas (UB is better than that) and I'm curious to see if the Lanoguard stuff does as I have four cars to do. The biggest appeal to me (if it works as well as Dynax UB) is that it isn't petrochemical based. I realise that's a minor point for something that's getting put onto a car but every little helps, particularly with localised pollution from application and wash off. I'd be interested to see how far 2L of Lanoguard applied with the pump sprayer goes vs 5L of the BH Dynax given the similar prices.

I too have been watching the Lanoguard story. Keep reading it needs applying twice a year though. But a major bonus seems just spray on with little/no prep.

still on the fence!

Dyanx UB, UC, and S50 are all based on a lanolin derivative - all three are available in aerosol form and are surface tolerant... can be applied to surfaces with little prep.

Thanks - sorry, I was specifically wondering if the bulk (5 litre) litre variants can be sprayed in a similar way to langured; with just a 'hand' sprayer.

Can you also give an idea on consistency of each in the bulk form.

I have come to learn over time that so much of an aerosol is propellant, they are rarely cost effective..

I'm fairly certain you can and that they come with instructions on what to "water" down the product with in order to spray it.
