CorroGuard is the number one defensive player in your anti-corrosion playbook

Summary


The undersides of trailers are constantly hammered at high rates of speed by road debris such as pebbles and stones. But not all coatings can stand up to such abusive and high-impact environments.

The undersides of trailers are constantly hammered at high rates of speed by road debris such as pebbles and stones. But not all coatings can stand up to such abusive and high-impact environments. As a result, trailers that look shiny and new can quickly degrade visually, and more importantly be subjected to the damaging effects of rust and corrosion.

That's why adding corrosion resistance and road debris damage protection is often a priority for many fleet operations. In response, trailer manufacturers typically offer a choice of solutions to new trailer buyers. The first line of defense is often standard wax-based self-healing top coat products. But when a customer feels they need to beef up their line of defense even further they often look at galvanizing major trailer components.

However, the most galvanizing force available to help combat corrosion on your trailers isn't galvanizing at all. Available exclusively from Great Dane, CorroGuard benefits are unmatched by any other alternative. Applied as a tough resilient thermoplastic coating to sub-frames, landing gear and other components, CorroGuard is an extremely powerful defense against the profit-eating effects of corrosion.

A galvanized coating can crack and flake due to impact from rocks and other road debris, exposing the base metal to corrosion. A spray-on thermoplastic coating, like CorroGuard, resists impact damage and is not easily abraded or compromised. CorroGuarded trailer components are also impervious to the nasty road chemicals in use today. In short, CorroGuard is your right hand man when it comes to impact and corrosion protection.

CorroGuard is typically applied to components under the trailer that are hard or impossible to galvanize, such as axles, brake chambers, air tanks and support gear legs; thus offering the most comprehensive corrosion protection system available. Other trailer manufacturers are unable to hot-dip galvanize these individual components; however Great Dane's spray-on process happens in the production line which allows for complete coverage of the undercarriage.

In addition to superior appearance, CorroGuard is the best, most cost-effective solution that adds life to the trailer.

CorroGuard is a premium feature available on the Champion Dry Vans, Everest Reefers, and the Freedom LT flatbed, and is backed by a five-year limited warranty.
