About Mud Guard
A mud flap, also known as mud guard, is used well along with car fenders in the wheel to protect the vehicle, passengers and other pedestrians against debris and mud flying off the wheel into the air when the tyre rotates. Most of the mud guards are made of flexible material such as rubber, which is not damaged when it comes to mud, debris, rocks and road surfaces.
What is the purpose?
The primary purpose of mud guards or splash guards is to reduce the splatter of mud, snow, water and rocks, thus protecting vehicle’s undercarriage and paint job. Mud guards are especially important for SUVs and heavy-duty trucks that run on highways. Thus, good quality mud flaps are to be used.
How It Works?
Following are the primary functions of mud guards or mud flaps: Because of the rotational force of the wheel, a lot of mud and debris gets collected in the wheel under extreme weather conditions or if the road is bad. The mud guards prevent this mud from flying off with force and also deny any kind of mud, rocks, debris and even snow from entering any important component of the engine bay or any other part of the car. Mud guard prevents debris from denting the fenders and chipping off the car paint. Mud flaps deflect loss of gravel and small rocks as well as excess rainwater which can cause corrosion. The car's undercarriage covers and keeps it free from mud splatters. Given that mud guards restrict the possibility of debris flying off forcefully while driving, they can help prevent a lot of road accidents. They also deflect various harmful objects from entering the engine bay or damaging the tyres on the roads. Mud Guards can also protect the vehicle against tiny nicks and scratches caused by debris.
