Hot wax flooding
Hot wax flooding
Designing the Volkswagen Golf was a labor of love. We use a hot wax flooding process because, well, we really hate rust. Before we put the sheet metal on your Golf, we put it through a hot wax flooding treatment to fill tiny spaces and help remove moisture in the hardest-to-reach areas. The result of that process makes the frame so watertight that we’re able to offer a 12-year limited warranty against corrosion perforation.¹ It’s nothing against rust. Actually, yes it is.
