Hood Nozzle Application Location

Our Hood Nozzles are made for today’s market. Whether your hood is made of Air Craft quality aluminum or high strength steel, the need for complete protection against the elements and environmental corrosive agents is paramount. In order to satisfy the consumer demand for a safer and longer lasting vehicle, there have been many advances made in an effort to prolong metal integrity and fight off oxidation.

Wax spray is a relatively new process (indicated target areas marked in yellow). Typically the operator would insert the spray tip of the nozzle between the layers of body metal via a prestamped access hole. For maximum corrosion protection, sealing the entire 360 degree perimeter of the panel is recommended.

Areas marked in red are normally sealed in a full open or propped position.

Blue marked hems would, due to hinge clearance, be normally sealed in the closed position with a Blind “J” Style tool.
