Plant-based rust treatment for cars

antirouille L

A collaborative project with Metropolitan Rustproofing

For almost 40 years Quebecers have looked to Metropolitan Rustproofing to protect their vehicles from harsh winter conditions. And that’s about how long CRIQ has partnered with Metropolitan Rustproofing in the quest to improve its exclusive anti-corrosion products. It’s a beautiful story going all the way back to the 1980s.

This time Metropolitan Rustproofing was looking to design an affordable vegetable oil–based formula that was also biodegradable and eco-friendly.

Investissement Québec - CRIQ met the challenge and formulated a product that could be quickly produced as demand for green anti-rust products grows—as is the case with many other everyday eco-friendly products.

But the story doesn’t end here. A number of additives used in this plant-based anti-rust formula were also tested in Metropolitan Rustproofing’s mineral oil–based formula. The results were so conclusive that the company decided to change its classic formula and incorporate the new additives.

So thanks to Investissement Québec - CRIQ’s work with Metropolitan Rustproofing, vehicles on Québec roads are now better protected than ever!

- We rely on partners like CRIQ for R&D support
to offer Québec drivers ever more effective products.
