Sym-Tech, the cure all for rust...or Snake Oil?
I was in a speed shop the other day, and came across a pamphlet that that read, "Electronic Corrosion Control Module- REFERENCE BOOK.
Being a natural hater of rust, I picked it up, and have just gone through the hand out.
Bottom line, it promises to slow down any rust occurring in a vehicle...but the company is really careful in their wording as to the degree of slowing down the rust! But if it did slow it down, then I was interested.
I just went into their website at sym-tech.ca and found out that this product is but the tip of the mountain of other anti-rust products that they sell including under coating. They aslo offer fabric protection coating for the seats, a paint protection porduct and the list goes on.
I've heard of this approach to slowing down the rusting process by changing the chassis of a vehicle by putting a charge to the surface of the body. With this "surplus of electrons" as they put it, the rust is inhibited in its oxidation process.
Along with this module they suggest a thick undercoating, that they say is used by the dealerships in general.
However, I did find out that in order to get the complete package, a person can spend up to $2k for a complete coverage of a vehicle.!
The company says that there has been extensive "scientific testing" to back up their stopping rust, but that's all you get in the way of an explanation. No stats, no mention of who did the testing, under what conditions, when, how, etc.
So, was wondering is anybody out there has either heard of this company, their product line, the results...or is it it yet a another way to get car guys to part with their hard earned cash?
On a side note, they have been on the scene since 1971, and have a good BBB A+ rating ...for that that's worth, eh?
