US company Talbert Manufacturing has manufactured its first trailer with Corsol WB Corrosion Protection, a metal treatment system that protects steel from the corrosive effects of magnesium chloride, calcium chloride, sodium chloride, rock chipping, acid rain and extreme temperatures.
The Corsol WB system is made by corrosion solutions manufacturer PRP Industries. The process is used as an alternative to hot dipped galvanizing due to exceptional performance, lower weight and cost, according to Talbert. “The result is a … finish that prevents corrosion from degrading the metal components.”
The company said Corsol WB was ideal for haulers who transport through snow melting agents in the Midwest or salty conditions along the coastal regions, where the chemicals have become increasingly corrosive and damaging to trailers.
