Accuride Corporation announces the introduction of Accu-Armor, the newest aluminum wheel product offering from its Accuride Wheels business unit.
According to the company, Accu-Armor aluminum wheels undergo a proprietary, multi-step, post-production treatment process that texturizes, anodizes and seals the surface without changing or compromising the wheels’ original form, fit or function. As a result of this process, Accuride says premium Accu-Armor aluminum wheels are highly resistant to scratching and scuffing, filiform corrosion, high- and low-pH chemicals commonly used in truck washes, and common chemicals used in de-icing road surfaces. Accu-Armor aluminum wheels also are said to be proven to be durable under extended exposure to heat and UV light, and will not chalk or fade. Accuride says they are easy to clean and require very little maintenance, while featuring an attractive, distinctive appearance.
“With our introduction of Accu-Armor aluminum wheels, Accuride has once again taken a pioneering step to serve several important segments of the commercial vehicle industry,” says Chuck Byrnes, senior vice president, sales and marketing. “By staying in tune with the needs of our customers and the ever-changing demands of our industry, we have engineered a surface treatment that not only protects Accuride aluminum wheels from most common environmental and vocational hazards, but also, just as importantly, protects our customers’ aluminum wheel investment.”
