Corrosion Protection

Corrosion Protection

Finally, an environmentally friendly way to protect your entire vehicle body.

Fighting rust is a must. Despite advances in auto manufacturing, you need corrosion protection that goes beyond the manufacturer’s limited rust warranty. Tricare offers the most advanced corrosion protection available, the TC-3000 electromagnetic rust inhibitor.

Benefits of Non-Cathodic Protection

  • Total perforation protection, even when caused by stone chips and scratches
  • Patented pulse-wave signal is harmless to you and your car, SUV, truck or minivan
  • An environmentally friendly alternative to chemical sprays
  • One-time installation - no inspections or reapplications required (See Warranty Registration For Details)
  • Includes the best corrosion warranty in the industry

How It Works

Fighting rust is a must. Despite advances in auto manufacturing, you need corrosion protection that goes beyond the manufacturer's limited rust warranty. Tricare offers the most advanced corrosion protection available, the TC-3000 electromagnetic rust inhibitor.

What is electromagnetic corrosion protection?

Tricare's electromagnetic corrosion protection is a R.F (radio frequency) electromagnetic pulse wave (non-cathodic) signal which enhances the galvanizing properties of your vehicles sheet metal.

How does the technology work?

The electromagnetic corrosion module works by emitting a carefully-designed, high frequency, battery-driven pulse wave that travels on both the inside and outside surface of the vehicle sheet metal. The pulse wave helps inhibit the corrosion process, which occurs naturally on any metal. Sprays cannot protect your vehicle from all forms of rust.

Will the Tricare electromagnetic corrosion module drain my car battery?

The module does not drain your vehicle battery. It only draws 1/3 of 1 milliamp to power the technology which is 40 times less power than any other module on the market.

Can I take the Tricare electromagnetic corrosion module with me to my next vehicle?

Your module can be used to protect your next vehicle however the warranty will not be valid. In order to register a warranty to the new vehicle you would need to purchase it through a participating dealership. If you have further questions on how to go about protecting a new vehicle with an existing module please contact our warranty administrator at 1-800-952-9058 or email them at

Has The Tricare electromagnetic corrosion protection technology been tested by independent, non-biased agencies or organizations?

YES, the Tricare electronic corrosion protection module underwent extensive additional testing between 2002 and 2004 at the government's request. It is proven that it does indeed help to inhibit corrosion. Tests show a 98% to 99.7% reduction in corrosion on automotive sheet metal panels.For a complete list of testing organizations, see our Lab Tested page.

What do I do if the module light does not come on when I press the test button?

Check the connections in your vehicle then the module inline fuse, if light still does not come on bring your vehicle back to your selling dealer.

My car already has some rust; will the Tricare electromagnetic corrosion module help?

Yes, the module will slow down the process of rust even if there is rust present before installation.


Will my pacemaker be affected by the Tricare electromagnetic corrosion module?

No, the module delivers a totally safe (RF) radio frequency no different than your car's radio. It will not affect a pacemaker.




The inventor of EICCT and the leader of Final Coat’s R&D Department, with a PhD in Physics from Kent State University in 1987. Dr. Lewis has twenty-two patents and invented a new electronic corrosion reduction method in 1997. He has designed various environmental chambers and a Raman spectrometer for surface chemical analysis. While with Cisco Systems, he led a communications systems engineering group where he directed the architectural design of digital signal processing integrated circuits for digital communications and was responsible for the design and direction of several large scale communications computer simulations. As a faculty member and consultant, Dr. Lewis has directed a multidisciplinary materials science research effort to study the relationship between the molecular structure and the third-order optical nonlinearity of metal organic polymers and monomers and has worked extensively in the fields of laser physics, optoelectronics, optical modulation and liquid crystal physics.



has a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry from Penn State Erie, the Behrend College. He then worked at Alcoa’s Research Laboratories and became interested in electrochemistry. Based on this interest, he decided to do his doctoral dissertation research with Dr. Digby Macdonald in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Pennsylvania State University. He co-wrote two invention disclosures on Regeneration of Sodium Borohydride. Jason graduated with his PhD in Materials Science and Engineering from Pennsylvania State University with dissertation research in electrochemistry. In 2009, he joined Dr. Michael Lewis at our research facility to explore the electrochemical side of our patented technology.
