Triangle Suspension Systems, which provides undercarriage products from heavy- and medium-duty trucks and trailers, recently improved the corrosion protection of its multi leaf and parabolic springs by adding a new high-performance, corrosion-resistant water-based coating.
Damage caused by corrosion is an on-going and costly issue affecting many North American truck fleets. Triangle evaluated several coatings for salt spray corrosion results, dry time improvements and process capabilities in order to offer the industry leaf springs that will not show signs of corrosion in a short period of time.
The test results for the new coating show it offers three times the corrosion resistance, Triangle said, distinguishing its suspension leaf spring products as an “excellent” choice for vehicle operators.
Since the new coating still is a water-based product and low in VOCs, it is compliant to today’s environmental rules and guidelines and does not require a Proposition 65 warning label, the company said.
The new corrosion resistant Triangle leaf spring products are available throughout North America from their network of 1,400 distribution locations. Visit triangleusa.com to find out more about their products and availability.
