Protection from atmospheric agents

The main causes of corrosion are the following:

❒ atmospheric pollution;
❒ salty air and humidity (coastal areas, or hot humid climates);
❒ seasonal environment conditions.

Not to be underestimated is also the abrasive action of wind-borne atmospheric dust and sand and mud and gravel raised by other vehicles.

On your Fiat Punto, Fiat implemented the best manufacturing technologies to effectively protect the bodywork against corrosion.

These include:

❒ Painting products and systems which give the car particular resistance to corrosion and abrasion;
❒ Use of galvanised (or pretreated) steel sheets, with high resistance to corrosion;
❒ Spraying the underbody, engine compartment, wheelhouse internal parts and other parts with highly protective wax products;
❒ Spraying of plastic parts, with a protective function, in the more exposed points: underdoor, inner fender parts, edges, etc.;
❒ Use of УopenФ boxed sections to prevent condensation and pockets of moisture from triggering rust inside.
