Maxi-Seal Defender battles corrosion

Maxi-Seal Harness Systems, a subsidiary of Peterson Manufacturing, has introduced a new weapon against trailer wiring corrosion. It's called the Defender, a modular harness/lighting system with integrated moisture/corrosion protection.

The Defender system combines harness components with Peterson's Piranha LED lights — all totally sealed against moisture and corrosion through Maxi-Seal's Power-Seal technology. An extended warranty backs the system against defects and corrosion for 10 years.

Peterson and Maxi-Seal launched field tests in 2008, partnering a large carrier to see how the Defender performed on a fleet of 20 semi-trailers. At the one-year mark, random inspections showed all connections were still in pristine condition. Today, after 1.6 million miles over all types of roads in all kinds of weather, no problem has occurred.
