How it works

A car is predominantly made of plastic, metal, and glass, if you’re lucky, carbon fibre! These make ideal places for condensation to occur. Many cars rot from the inside out. This is because when the condensation occurs, it occurs on both sides of the surface it can be seen on, this can be detrimental to Carbon Fibre. One side is painted, polished, waxed, and is open to the air. The other is hidden and sheltered, inside of doors, under carpets, inside side sills and chassis rails, to name just a few traps. Therefore, we usually do not recognize the problem of rust and rot until it is too late, while the underside of your car may be wax-oiled and protected, the other side of those very panels will have minimal protection and over time, rust can set in and begin it’s process and spread, only alerting you when it is too late and an MOT tester is prodding their screwdriver through it.

Air flow

Cars have been designed to be driven and not parked in garages for prolonged periods of time. The door and other cavities receive an adequate flow of moving air when the car is driven but not when it is still. This is where the physics of the Car Bubble comes into its own. Instead of the car moving, the Car Bubble moves the air, about 30,000 liters per hour, flowing all around and through the car inside the smallest of spaces.

Condensation

So what about condensation? As the car is now in its own environment, we can control against rapid changes in climate, the cause of condensation! In the Car Bubble, the air is exchanged 3 times in an hour. If there is a rapid change in air temperature outside this environment, then it will take twenty minutes to change inside, this is not a rapid change and therefore condensation does not occur.
