I don't think (& I may be wrong) that Galvanising works in the same way as a sacrificial anode does e.g. on an engine. Galvanising is a protective coating, the zinc oxidises within a few days of being applied & the zinc oxide layer is very stable & unreactive. Protecting the oxide layer (with waxoyl) stops any further oxidisation & leads to a very tough protective coat which effectively "self heals" if it suffers minor damage. We install a lot of structural steelwork in water treatment works & the Water Industry spec for surface protection is :- shotblast-etch-galvanise-etch primer-undercoat-top coat. The galv has to be covered with a minimum thickness of paint. The galv is actually the last line of defence in case the paint is breached. This gives a 20 yr lifespan in an extremely aggressive environment.

we use it for protecting piles on quay walls if you heat it till its like water then brush apply, it get right into the rust and stops corrosion clean all the loose s--t of first though.good for brake cables too gets into the weave.

cheers

its a Wynn & coles product if anyone needs some don't look pretty when on but does keep the trailer in good condition

Cheers, I didn't know about heating it, we've always used it cold in conjunction with Denso tape for protecting cable joints & earth bonds. Good tip.


.....sh1t happens.......

waxoyl bought, will apply over the weekend.

I'll decide on whether to do the whole thing or just the important bits.

cheers

waxoyl is good but be mindful that dust sticks to it can look unsightly for me i sooner have it rust free than look pretty

I do the trailer internals only with Wax oil..for that reason,and the fact the rest is easy to rinse off inspect and maintain...most trailers Rot from the insides out.
Things like rollers and and swinging arms are best protected with Greese ect IMO.
One thing I do recommend is changing the washers on the rollers to Stainless..if not already fitted...easy to do,looks a lot better and saves grief down the line
