The Armadillo was developed to resolve the growing health and safety issues surrounding the use of petrochemical-based resins to protect vehicles against rust.

Founded in 1989.
Now Selling in over 10 Countries.

The Armadillo is the proud achievement of the first company to market a device specifically patented to protect vehicles against corrosion using an electric current. Electronic rust protection applications such as the Armadillo are replacing
traditional spray coat applications, paving the way for a cleaner, more environmentally friendly solution that’s cost-effective and easy to install.

Lab testing shows that the Armadillo slows down the natural corrosion process, most recently under stringent testing imposed by the Canadian Competition Bureau.

Since selling its first electronic rust protection system in New York State in 1989, and now selling in over 10 countries, the makers of the Armadillo have successfully patented the application of electronic corrosion protection via a vehicle’s
OBD port.

How Does the Armadillo Work?
When exposed to moisture, iron will ionize. In that state, it will begin to combine with oxygen to form rust.

Using a vehicle’s battery as a power source, the Armadillo device emits a small, regulated current throughout the car, supplying free electrons which shield the iron from combining with oxygen to form rust. Our scientifically proven system
works continuously for the vehicle’s life and comes with a 5-year product warranty. Simply plug into your car’s OBD port, and the Armadillo will do the rest!

Electronic corrosion protection is a method of inhibiting the onset of rust or corrosion on metal by applying an electric current to the metal being protected.

Where bare or exposed metal molecules are exposed to the environment, moisture will cause the metal’s molecules to lose electrons. When that happens, the molecules will combine with oxygen molecules to form corrosion. By applying
an electric current to the metal, a flow of free electrons through the metal is created, essentially shielding the metal’s molecules from the oxygen molecules and thereby inhibiting their ability to combine with the metal

No. This type of corrosion protection has been around for over 100 years.

The Armadillo is a plug-and-play patented electronic corrosion protection application that allows you to protect your vehicle simply by plugging the device into your vehicle’s onboard diagnostic (OBD) port.

Yes. Following testing in a certified lab, the results were reviewed by a corrosion engineer from McGill University on behalf of the Canadian Government, who confirmed that the electronic corrosion protection in question did
inhibit the corrosion on automotive vehicles. That same technology is what goes into every Armadillo device.
