Paintwork in one RAL colour according to the customer’s wishes (except metallic colours), load securing elements in RAL 1003 signal yellow as standard.
Before the paintwork, the trailer chassis are blasted in the automatic blasting machine specially designed for our trailer types, based on 12 consistently strong, automated and ring-shaped blast wheel turbines. Thanks to the special Hüffermann blasting abrasive, this results in a more homogeneous blasting pattern. Within the scope of the control process, additional blasting is performed manually, depending on the chassis design.
Priming: Application of an epoxy resin-based primer without electrostatics. Also for long-term and resilient corrosion protection.
Top coat: The 2-component top coat with a high solid content is individually applied in the desired colour (RAL) with the electrostatic method. As a result, even the smallest cracks are covered with paint and the protection and look is preserved over the years.
Sealing: After the assembly and the final approval of the vehicle from Quality Assurance, the vehicle is preserved at material contact points and transitions. Preservation is accomplished with Dinitrol cavity wax.
Standard version without paintwork on the side collision protection, silver rims. Axles with black CDP coating. Add-on parts are galvanised.
Optional: Arc galvanising
Zinc wire is melted by an arc, atomised with compressed air and applied onto the freshly blasted surface of the chassis (without add-on parts). Together with the subsequent paintwork, this achieves corrosion protection with similar properties as hot-dip galvanising. Another advantage is the low heat input. This ensures that the structure of high-strength steels is not modified and large areas do not tend to warp.
Electrical arc galvanising offers a clear advantage in terms of the duration of protection, hardness, bonding strength, abrasion resistance, stone chipping resistance and edge protection.
