Tested to reduce the risk

General tests

The Aktiv-E line has been tested to reduce the risk of damage caused by corrosion for various car body and components, through external laboratory tests on specific surfaces, such as, for example, on decorative surfaces made of aluminium or galvanised bolts. A surface was considered resistant when no damage or corrosion were visible on plain sight. All Aktiv-E products placed on the market have been subjected to these tests.

VDA-compliante products

Moreover, many products of the Aktiv-E line for use on the vehicle exterior bear the green seal "VDA di Klasse A"; this guideline was drawn up in order to more effectively prevent damage to vehicles subjected to washing, offering a proper balance between car-wash, vehicle and chemical detergents. The products are evaluated in terms of their aggressiveness and corrosive effect on sensitive types of surface protection at high temperatures.


Validity and VDA sphere

The VDA publication applies to:
  • Manual self-service and power washers
  • Gate-type car-washes
  • Conveyor-type car-washes
  • Wash components
 

Detergent requirements according to VDA

The purchased product has been subjected to tests to reduce the risk of damage due to corrosion to the components and the body of the vehicle. The products are evaluated in terms of their aggressiveness and corrosive effect on sensitive types of surface protection at high temperatures. The detergent is approved by a VDA seal when the treated surface, according to the guidelines, is resistant to corrosion damage and optical deterioration.

Specific field of application: manual self-service and power washers (according to VDA)

It is important for the client who buys a product with a VDA seal to know that since it falls under a ''self-service'' application, it is impossible to pre-determine the setting time of the products such as ''Toglimoscerini'' or the "Pulitore Cerchi” that are sprayed prior to washing. Therefore, it is essential to make sure to have a Class A VDA seal like Aktiv-E products.
