You may have noticed how common it is to see dirty, rusted out trailers on the road, but why do these newer trailers develop rust so quickly to begin with?
The answer is a poor paint job. Manufacturers don’t put the time into sandblasting their surfaces for paint when preparing metal for utility trailers such as this one due to the extra time and cost involved. This means that, while a brand-new trailer may look slick when it rolls out of the factory, it won’t take long for it to have rust begin creeping under the paint, causing visible spotting and deterioration that weakens the integrity of the frame.
Trailer Sandblasting and Coating Prevents Damage
A complete sandblast and repaint on a chipped up and rusting trailer will stop the damage in its tracks. Sandblasting the metal cleans it and creates a rough texture profile that will anchor the paint.
Once the sandblasting stage is finished, an industrial quality coating over the newly cleaned and profiled metal surface will leave you with an extremely durable finish that will keep the frame protected from any rain, snow, or salt that the roads throw at it for years to come.
