Let’s talk proper paint protection.

To start with, corrosion protection is one of the most important jobs of a truck’s paint and finish. The kind of protection you need depends on application. If your trucks run routes through areas with harsh winters, you’ll want to protect those trucks from salt and other de-icing mixtures. On the other hand, if you’re in an area with high heat and desert conditions, you’ll want to opt for UV protection.

Keeping on top of paints and finishes from a maintenance perspective can help your fleet continue rolling along productively. Make sure to keep paints and finishes on your PM schedule, to avoid downtime due to corrosion. Corrosion protection in the paints themselves will help but will not replace a regular PM schedule.

Additionally, it should be noted that since every fleet application has its own specific operational nuances, nailing down your paint and coating ROI can be difficult, but it shouldn’t be discounted.
