Corrosion protection

Across the broad spectrum of maintenance issues facing fleets, vehicle corrosion is one of the more bothersome, requiring persistent effort and a considerable amount of money to control and correct.

Corrosion is a catchall term that covers a range of problems, including rust, tarnish, pitting, chalking and scaling. Technically, corrosion is decay resulting from a chemical or electromagnetic reaction between a metal and its environment. The process cannot be eliminated, but it can be minimized with proper equipment spec’ing and preventative maintenance practices.

The biggest contributors to corrosion are the three varieties of chloride commonly used to deice roads. Sodium chloride (salt), the original melting agent, was first tried during the 1930s, and it became the treatment of choice for highway crews within a decade. In the mid ‘90s, however, snow-belt states were looking for environmentally friendlier—and cheaper —alternatives, and they started switching to calcium chloride and magnesium chloride after early studies indicated that the pair was less harmful to roadside vegetation, offered better low-temperature performance and extended longevity on road surfaces. The popularity of these newcomers grew quickly, and they’re now the standard deicing agents where such products are needed. Unfortunately, as truckers learned soon after the products’ introduction, they are as brutal on trucks and trailers as they are on ice and snow.

Complaints about the corrosive effects of the newer chloride treatments have flooded state and local departments of transportation almost from the start. Stories of widespread and unprecedented trouble abound: Chrome and painted surfaces are stained; aluminum is pitted, electrical wiring and fixtures dissolve; and large structural bolts and braces crumble.

Various agencies and organizations have worked hard during the past decade to combat the issue. In 1999, the Colorado Department of Transportation commissioned one of the first in-depth studies, which was conducted by the University of Colorado at Boulder and the American Trucking Associations (ATA) Foundation. Since then, the ATA’s Technology and Maintenance Council has focused a great deal of attention on the matter, setting up a study group, aptly titled the Corrosion Abatement Task Force, to come up with solutions.

Manufacturers are also active on this front, working individually and in concert with industry associations to develop new corrosion-resistant products and testing procedures. Results of these efforts include (in alphabetical order):

Alcoa Wheel Products —The company’s Dura-Bright wheels, introduced in 1999, were updated with “XBR technology” in 2006. According to company information, these wheels are more corrosion resistant than their standard-issue counterparts because the surface is sealed, preventing the introduction of outside contaminants. Better yet,...
