Do you know enough about your ChassiS?

Corrosion - – Trailer chassis and truck chassis (frame) are not immune to the devastating effects of this industry wide problem.

In fact, its not just a problem anymore, but an epidemic. Corrosion is beginning to show its ugly face in as little as 1 year, and fleets and OEMs say that they are tired of the appearance (Image) problems that corrosion creates, not to mention the impact on longevity, durability and cost.

The corrosion problems have been exasperated, not only just by the type of de-icing chemicals in use today, but also by the amounts being applied. Not only are these chemicals being used when there is poor weather conditions, but road crews are applying de-icing chemicals to prevent ice build-up, resulting in more chemicals being used overall. As a result, we're seeing increased corrosion due to increased exposure.

Exposure to de-icing chemicals; stone and gravel impingement; wide temperature variations, rain and snow all contribute to a destructive environment that requires innovative and advanced-technology coatings for proper rust and corrosion control.

Constant bombardment by moisture and debris, as well as exposure to road salts and de-icing materials, makes specifying trailer chassis, and truck chassis (frame), for corrosion protection critical to increasing longevity, durability, and reducing costs.

Chassis - We successfully fight corrosionThe TMC has developed a standard which they believe should be the target for longevity and perfromance.

TMC's corrosion protection matrix calls for eight years for heavy-duty tractors and trucks, and 16 years for trailers. “Build/engineer components and the vehicle as a whole for the worst-case corrosion scenario, we must assume the worst-case scenario.

We need OEMs to be more responsive in having protective coatings on vehicles so we don't have to do what we feel as users is unnecessary maintenance. We're replacing structural and non-structural components we never had to in the past because of extreme corrosion.”

No doubt, if you are an OEM or a Fleet company, or an owner operator – this strikes a chord with you. In fact, you are probably sick of hearing and talking about it. Well, you don’t have to any more.
