Best coating for the long haul!
Date galvanized: 2010
The manufacturer noted “corrosion is one of the largest problems facing our industry today.”
AZZ supplied information on hot-dip galvanizing’s long, maintenance-free performance and showed them many examples of hot-dip galvanized steel protecting truck and trailer bodies successfully. Knowing their trailers are subjected to a multitude of corrosive elements, including road salts, AZZ had captured the manufacturer’s attention. They conducted independent research and discovered the initial cost of hot-dip galvanizing was extremely competitive with the paint system they were utilizing, and the life-cycle cost was far superior.
In addition to the cost savings, they were also impressed with the lasting aesthetic of the coating. Hot-dip galvanizing could remain corrosion-free throughout the trailer’s service life, thus eliminating unsightly corrosion staining. Thanks to the consistent performance and appearance of hot-dip galvanized steel, the manufacturer’s trucks and trailers will give a better image to any product they are transporting well into the future.
