RESEARCH AIMED TO REDUCE CORROSION CAUSED BY HIGHWAY DE-ICING SALT

The addition of a corrosion inhibitor to de-icing salt is both technically and economically an unattractive technique for reducing motor vehicle corrosion. Trials carried out in the laboratory and with vehicles have shown that underbody car washing is of value in reducing corrosion but the benefit is increased if washing is associated with the use of the TRRL inhibitor. An obstacle to progress in the reduction of motor vehicle corrosion is the absence of realistic accelerated corrosion tests in which to evaluate new anti-corrosion techniques. /TRRL/
