Trailer body paintwork in one RAL colour according to the customer’s wishes
Before the paintwork, self-manufactured subframes and other steel constructions are blasted in the specially designed automatic blasting machine, 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.
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.
