large or medium bodied 4x4 vehicles such as Landcruiser, Patrol,
Pajero, Territory, etc that are driven on the beach, or tow a boat
and may require lower body/chassis protection in addition to upper
dual-cab utes such as Hilux, Navara, Courier,etc that are driven on
the beach, or tow a boat and may require lower body/chassis
protection in addition to upper body protection.
For smaller systems and accessories, please see 'other listings' or

SYSTEMS WITH INADEQUATE COVERAGE WILL NOT WORK !
Systems with ZERO contact points cannot provide ANY real protection-
they might sound quick & easy to install but don't be fooled. As
the saying goes, if it seems too good to be true, it probably is!
Effective protection requires multiple contact points- even two or
four points is still NOT SUFFICIENT for a large 4x4. Vehicles have
many vulnerable areas such as door sections, rear tailgate, bonnet,
etc and these panels are NOT directly connected to the vehicle
monocoque (or main body pressing).These panels are isolated via
hinges or brackets and must be protected DIRECTLY with a contact
point. The ONLY solution is sufficient contact points:simple! The
smallest Corrosion Guard package features 4 contact points and we
suggest that this is the MINIMUM required for small vehicles or a
single cab ute (that is NOT beach driven).
Corrosion Guard is a microprocessor controlled electronic
device that uses proven electro-chemical principles to greatly reduce
rust and corrosion in all vehicles. Similar systems have been used
for over 50 years in marine and civil applications, and are most
commonly seen in outboard motors. Simplified versions are also used
to protect steel bridges and pipelines throughout the world, and can
also be found in various domestic applications such as the storage
tank in hot water systems.
Principles of Operation
understand the process of impressed current cathodic protection, it
is necessary to understand why the metal components of a vehicle tend
to rust. In summary, the metal used in the construction of vehicles
contains a mass of electrons that carry opposing positive and
negative charges, known as cathodes and anodes. As the laws of
physics dictate, opposites attract. If moisture is present, it
becomes an electrolyte that forms a bridge or path that allows these
charged particles to interact. This results in the free electrons
from the cathodes attacking the anodes, causing the process commonly
known as corrosion or rust. The process is further accelerated in
coastal areas due to the high salt concentrations in water, making it
a better conductor. The anodes are in fact, “giving up” free ions
that form iron oxide (rust). Using the method of impressed current
cathodic protection utilized by Corrosion Guard, an accurately
controlled stream of charged ions (in the form of a direct current)
flows to externally situated Contact Points (that act as anodes) in
selected areas of the vehicle. These contact points carry a positive
charge when compared to the earthed metal components of the vehicle.
This supply affords an excess of charged particles, effectively
diverting rust away from the body of the vehicle. The contact points
are not 'sacrificial' anodes in the traditional sense as they have a
low zinc content and have a 10+ year lifespan.
Corrosion Guard system is unique in that it is specifically designed
for heavy duty automotive applications. It features eight zinc alloy
contact points that can be positioned in all the areas of a vehicle
that may have a tendency to rust. This gives significantly more net
protection than other single or dual anode/coupler systems. The
output is designed to suit a large 12+ contact point system and in
addition, the output is accurately controlled to compensate for high
resistance that can result from a build-up of salt or water inside
unsealed body panels prior to drainage and evaporation.
vehicles rust-free is a great way to save money. Rust repairs are
expensive and generally vehicles tend to have reduced re-sale and
trade-in values if they are rust repaired. Rust is also a major cause
of vehicle registration defect notices. So, in this case, prevention
is definitely better than the cure! Corrosion Guard protection is an
excellent way to keep rust at bay, especially when used in
conjunction with alternative methods, such as spray-on compounds.
However, most vehicles have numerous inaccessible seams, joins and
sections that sprays cannot reach. In addition, if a vehicle is
damaged, the spray-on compounds will usually be damaged,
significantly reducing their effectiveness.
system uses time proven principles that are founded in indisputable
mechanical and chemical theory, unlike other dubious systems that
rely on marketing hype to justify high retail prices. Corrosion Guard
offers excellent ongoing value-for-money. Designed for long-term
protection, the system can be transferred from vehicle to vehicle,
giving years of value. All accessories are available (see our Ebay
Store) to enable the system to be matched to another vehicle if
Corrosion Guard Control Unit is also designed to operate reliably in
highly corrosive environments. The enclosure is of die-cast alloy
construction and the enclosure is sealed with a fire retardant
encapsulant. All fittings are designed to withstand water and
abrasive contact. Similarly, the use of high quality electronic
components guarantees years of trouble-free operation regardless of

bought a Suzuki Vitara new in 1992; I fitted a Corrosion Guard in
1997. The vehicle spent a lot of its life with salt water mist
settling on it. ....... I sold the vehicle several months ago (2005)
with no signs of rust.

“I bought a ’94 Toyota
Hilux twin cab ute about 6 years ago and installed a Corrosion Guard
unit shortly after. The car already had some minor rust. We used the
car for holidays at the beach and towing the boat to boat ramps, and
it even got flooded in a swollen creek. When I traded in the ’94
model last month the inspection found the original rust had not
changed from when we first bought the trustworthy Toyota. I bought a
’04 Toyota 4x4 and the first thing I will be fitting is Corrosion

“I drive a 1995 Nissan
Patrol which is constantly used on beaches and bush tracks. The
scratches that occur whilst driving off-road would normally soon
rust, but with your unit fitted I have found that by the time I
repair them, there is no sign of rusting.”

“Our previous vehicle was
a white Toyota Landcruiser. When we were on the beach we could see
the rust dribbling down the white stone chips in the paint and now
with the Corrosion Guard fitted to my white Hilux, there is NO

recommend it to anyone who is thinking of having it fitted to their

“…..I can see no
further deterioration in the body of the Cortina which is in possibly
the worst environment, and am now transferring this unit to my latest
acquisition, an almost rust free Mitsubishi Station Wagon….. When I
replace the other vehicles I will not hesitate in fitting another
Corrosion Guard unit to the new one.”
