Acid Rain Damage Can Be Prevented

Everbrite™ Protective Coating will prevent acid damage on metal.

Acid rain is rain, snow or fog that is polluted by acid in the atmosphere and damages the environment. Two common air pollutants acidify rain: sulphur dioxide (SO2) and nitrogen oxide (NOx). When these substances are released into the atmosphere, they can be carried over long distances by prevailing winds before returning to earth as acidic rain, snow, fog or dust. When the environment cannot neutralize the acid being deposited, damage occurs.

Acid rain and the dry deposition of acidic particles damage buildings, statues, automobiles, and other structures made of stone, metal, or any other material exposed to weather for long periods. The corrosive damage can be expensive and, in cities with very historic buildings, tragic.

Prevent Acid Rain Damage

This picture shows the damage that acid rain caused on a metal roll up door. The metal is etched by the acid rain.

Acid rain can wreak havoc on your metal doors and buildings, even if you are not in an area with refineries, factories or power plants. Acid-rain damage creates dark streaks on the metal that are permanently etched and cannot be removed. This damage cannot be reversed, but it can be prevented.


Everbrite™ Protective Coating will protect surfaces from the damage that acid rain can cause. Everbrite™ is a clear, protective coating that will seal metal, looks very natural and will protect from acid rain, rust, white rust, corrosion, oxidation and other damaging elements. Clean the metal and remove as many stains as you can with Prep Pads and water. Check the metal to see how it looks when it is clean and wet. That is how the metal will look coated. Then wash down the metal to remove any residue, make sure the metal is completely clean and dry, then apply 2 coats of Everbrite™ Protective Coating. Everbrite™ will protect the metal from further damage.

You can purchase the Everbrite™ Coating by itself that have everything you need to protect metal from acid rain damage.
