Addressing the demand for more versatile corrosion control options on hydraulic sliding axle and other heavy equipment trailers that operate in extreme weather conditions, Kalyn Siebert will now offer corrosion protection as an option available for its entire product line. PRP Industries’ Corsol MP system has been proven to provide high protection against corrosion undercutting and blistering and is an effective alternative to hot-dip galvanizing, according to the manufacturer.
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,” said 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 its 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 more than one million commercial vehicles in service today.
