Proprietary process produces exceptional corrosion protection for an entire trailer, including steel components such as air tanks, hydraulic cylinders, and suspensions
(Gatesville, TX) – Addressing the demand for more versatile corrosion control options on Hydraulic Sliding Axle and other heavy equipment trailers that operate in extreme weather conditions, premium trailer manufacturer Kalyn Siebert proudly announces that it will now offer this superior corrosion protection as an option available for its entire product line. PRP Industries’ Corsol MP system has been proven to provide exceptionally high protection against corrosion undercutting and blistering and is an effective alternative to hot-dip galvanizing. Kalyn Siebert anticipates that the corrosion protection provided by the Corsol MP system will be particularly well suited for Hydraulic Sliding Axle trailer operators in the towing, recovery and transportation markets.
“Kalyn Siebert already has a state-of-the art blasting and painting facility. However, many of our clients operate their trailers in some of the most unforgiving environments in the world,” stated Kalyn Siebert Managing Director Ryan Rockafellow. “We wanted more corrosion protection than what paint provides in order to meet our clients’ long-term equipment needs. This is truly an alternative to hot-dip galvanizing providing the exceptional corrosion protection that our Hydraulic Sliding Axle clients are looking for.”

Engineers at Spartan Chassis worked with the Engineers at PRP Industries to identify a cost effective corrosion solution for fuel tanks on their emergency response chassis. The standard powder coated fuel tanks were not performing to the standards set by Spartan Chassis. After over a year of field testing and evaluation, PRP Industries implemented the Corsol Metal Treatment System into the fuel tank manufacturing process for Spartan Chassis. The superior corrosion resistance of the Corsol Treated Fuel Tanks has prompted many new vehicle purchasers to specify Corsol Treated Fuel Tanks on their next purchase.
