Ultimate Corrosion Protection®

The first line of defense is our Anti-Corrosion Package which is standard on all Hyundai Translead dry van trailers.  This package includes the rear frame, rear impact guard, wing plate and "K" bracing, mid-turn signal brackets and mud flap bracket.  Additional components that are offered hot-dip galvanized include the full upper coupler, all crossmembers, threshold plate, slider rails, external upper landing leg tubes and suspension slider box.

For those components that cannot be hot-dip galvanized Hyundai Translead is proud to now offer HT TuffCoat; developed with Bradley Coatings Group.  This two component 100% solids zero VOC coating is sprayed onto the components, fully protecting them from the rigors of over-the-road use.  The coating also acts as a barrier to damage from rocks and other debris which may impact them as well as chemicals currently used to de-ice roadways.  The components available for HT TuffCoat application are: the axles, brake chamber and slack adjusters, air tank, external landing leg tubes, suspension beams and suspension slider box.

HOT-DIP GALVANIZED OFFERS THE FOLLOWING BENEFITS

  • Service Life
    HDG has approximately 5 times the service life of zinc-rich paint.
  • Coverage
    Coats all surfaces, both exterior and interior. Also bonds and seals overlapped areas together.
  • Even Coating Thickness
    HDG covers all surfaces with a uniform thickness of zinc. This includes edges and corners which are typically very thin in painted applications.
  • Greater Adhesion
    HDG bonds or adheres to the applied surface 6 times greater than zinc-rich paint. The greater bond strength makes HDG difficult to scrape or abrade.
  • Discoloration
    HDG is not affected by the sun's UV rays and thus does not fade in sunlight.

HOT-DIP GALVANIZED IS ALSO BETTER FOR THE ENVIRONMENT THAT ZINC-RICH PAINTS

  • Global Warming Potential
    HDG has up to 50% less impact than zinc-rich paints
  • Acidification Potential
    HDG has up to 50% less impact than zinc-rich paints
  • Photo-Chemical Ozone Creation Potential
    Up to 55% less impact than zinc-rich paints
  • Energy
    Up to 66% less impact than zinc-rich paints
  • Recyclability
    100% recyclable. Zinc can be recycles indefinitely without loss of physical or chemical properties. Zinc and be readily collected during normal steel scrap recycling Acidification Potential
