Galvanizing is the process of adding zinc material to steel to create a barrier that not only protects the steel from rusting, but makes the surface of the steel harder than the base material for superior abrasion resistance. It offers many years of maintenance free service. Towmaster offers hot-dip galvanizing on select models. We are located near one of the largest galvanizers in the U.S. and that allows us to economically galvanize our trailers. Their process is certified to the ASTM A-123 specification and will protect the trailer for virtually a lifetime*. (*The lifetime of a trailer depends upon how well it is maintained, the conditions it is used in and other factors.)
Unlike paint, galvanizing creates a metallurgical bond with the steel that forms several layers. These layers protect the steel from rust corrosion and rust seepage in ways paint simply cannot. Some of these formed layers are harder than the steel itself creating an abrasion resistance to help prevent wear from gravel or sand. Galvanizing can also add to the resale value of the trailer and the initial investment is similar to what it would cost to repaint a trailer a few years down the road.
