DURABLE CONSERVATION

SHOTBLASTING
For the best results , Nooteboom uses pre-shotblasted material in the production process . After construction , the chassis and components are blasted with aluminium oxide ( corundum ). This material is iron-free , very pure , extremely hard and ensures there is no corrosion caused by residual abrasive .
THERMAL ZINC SPRAYING
The next phase in the conservation process is thermal spraying , where hot zinc is sprayed onto chassis and parts . In this process an alloy of zinc and aluminium is heated in a flame . The molten metal is propelled onto the surface to be treated , which is then sealed hermetically and therefore extremely corrosion-resistant .
2-LAYER PRIMER
After thermal spraying , a primer is sprayed in 2 separate layers onto the chassis and its components . Nooteboom uses a special flexible primer which guarantees a perfect protection against road chippings .
2-LAYER PAINT
Chassis and components are sprayed with an environment friendly 2K top coat that is extremely hard and scratch resistant . The result is a paint coating with a high degree of gloss that will keep the trailer looking good for 10 to 12 years or longer . With our latest Promix-III paint system all popular colours are available , including metallic paint .
