Proprietary process produces exceptional corrosion protection for an entire trailer, including steel components such as air tanks, hydraulic cylinders, and suspensions.
(Gatesville, TX) – Addressing the demand for more versatile corrosion control options on Hydraulic Sliding Axle and other heavy equipment trailers that operate in extreme weather conditions, premium trailer manufacturer Kalyn Siebert proudly announces that it will now offer this superior corrosion protection as an option available for its entire product line. PRP Industries’ Corsol MP system has been proven to provide exceptionally high protection against corrosion undercutting and blistering and is an effective alternative to hot-dip galvanizing. Kalyn Siebert anticipates that the corrosion protection provided by the Corsol MP system will be particularly well suited for Hydraulic Sliding Axle trailer operators in the towing, recovery and transportation markets.
“Kalyn Siebert already has a state-of-the art blasting and painting facility. However, many of our clients operate their trailers in some of the most unforgiving environments in the world,” stated Kalyn Siebert Managing Director Ryan Rockafellow. “We wanted more corrosion protection than what paint provides in order to meet our clients’ long-term equipment needs. This is truly an alternative to hot-dip galvanizing providing the exceptional corrosion protection that our Hydraulic Sliding Axle clients are looking for.”
Whereas the hot dip galvanizing process provides corrosion protection to steel components, there are limitations to which components can be dipped in molten zinc. Corsol MP system involves a chemical process that molecularly bonds a co-polymer to steel that prevents the steel from corrosion. The system protects against the harsh conditions commonly experienced in cold weather climates primarily due to the extensive use of corrosive road chemicals such as magnesium chloride, calcium chloride and sodium chloride. By utilizing the Corsol MP system within their facility, Kalyn Siebert is able to provide corrosion protection for much more of the trailer, including main frames, deck, air tanks, suspensions, axle components and hydraulic cylinders. This results in a much larger percentage of the total trailer being protected against corrosion.
Over the last 14 years the PRP Industries’ Corsol MP system has been extensively used in the North American market and currently protects the components of over one million commercial vehicles in service today.
For trailer owners interested in learning more, Kalyn Siebert will feature a Hydraulic Sliding Axle trailer protected with Corsol MP system at the American Towman Exhibition at the Baltimore Convention Center, running November 15 through 17.
