What is CouplerTec?
CouplerTec is an electronic device designed to prevent or keep at bay rust, oxidisation and corrosion of your vehicle. The system runs off your vehicle battery and uses less than 30 milliamps of power. Capacitive Coupling Technology has proven to be the only method of electronically stopping rust.
Does it work?
CouplerTec systems are widely used in controlling corrosion in some of Australia's harshest conditions including use by the mining industry, surf life saving, government and council vehicles.
How does CouplerTec work?
The CouplerTec unit pumps electrons into the vehicle so our supply of electrons exceeds the demand.
This is achieved by creating a capacitor, our pad that is affixed to the paint acts as the positive plate in the capacitor, the paint becomes the dielectric which in turn holds the charge static (keeps the electrons from flowing away) and the body of the vehicle or structure acts as the negative plate in the capacitor.
So what we are left with is a big capacitor;
- 1. The pad is the positive plate
- 2. The paint is the dielectric
- 3. The body is the negative plate
