Volkswagen Polo Service & Repair Manual: Wax Underbody Protection -D 316 D38 A2-

Wax Underbody Protection -D 316 D38 A2-
Edition 04/2009
Product Description
Wax Underbody Protection -D 316 D38 A2- is an solvent-containing anti-corrosion agent based on wax and lanolin with polymer and rust-protection additives.
This results in a high viscosity and a relatively high abrasion resistance for wax.
The material seeps into the pores of the PVC coating, pushing out moisture and closing the pores to produce a waterproof, highly adhesive and firm coating.
After drying, it forms a light beige, transparent, non-sticking, waterproof film.
Its transparency enables the product to conform to German technical standards (TÜV)(the underbody can be monitored).
The dry film has good adhesion and corrosion protection properties and is very durable due to its toughness and resistancy.
Wax Underbody Protection -D 316 D38 A2- technical application information
The material is primarily used on the underbody and especially for treatment and maintenance of all protective coats such as PVC, PVC/wax/bitumen/rubber/resin based materials.
It can also be used to treat chassis parts such as axles, wheel suspensions and springs. These parts become grey with age and are often the first to be affected by rust. The treatment refreshes the color which considerably improves the optical appearance. At the same time the parts are protected against corrosion.
Before starting to apply, it is necessary to read the safety measures and advice in the safety data sheet.
Even for products which are not required to be labeled by law, the usual safety measures must be observed for chemical emissions.
Clean the surfaces to be treated with Wax Underbody Protection well beforehand and remove any rust.
The surfaces must be dry, free of grease, dirt and as much dust as possible.
The Wax Underbody Protection must only be applied to dry surfaces. Rust must be taken into account for older vehicles.
Rust should be removed with a wire brush.
Before work can start the vehicle should be covered, especially the door windows.
The Wax Underbody Protection can be applied to a vertical surfaces in one step. To prevent a spraying shadow, it is advisable to spray with cross coats.
After drying over night the vehicle can be used again. Between 24 and 48 hours are required for final drying.
An underbody protection spray gun is used when applying with the 1 L can. The can should be shaken before use.
Recommended wet film thickness 200 µm, processing air pressure approximately 3 to 5 bar.
The Wax Underbody Protection can also be used with a pressure feed spray gun if the Venturi hooked probe (16139 SATA) is used. The application pressure is approximately 3 to 4 bar. A 750 mm flexible guide hose enables the operator to guide the hook with the 7 mm Venturi nozzle with ease.
Do not spray onto the steering, engine, driveshaft, exhaust, catalytic converter and brake systems.
Blow out the spraygun immediately after use and then rinse it with Plastic Cleaner -D 195 850 A1-.
If the spray gun becomes blocked the can may burst!
Observe the operating instructions of the UBS spray gun!
Splashes and spray mist on painted surfaces should be removed immediately using Plastic Cleaner -D 195 850 A1-. Material residue can also be cleaned off easily with mineral spirits or kerosene.
Larger surfaces can also be cleaned with a steam cleaner.
For this reason an underbody that has been treated with Wax Underbody Protection cannot be cleaned with steam cleaning devices unless it is to remove the old layer before new treatment can begin.
