Aluminium oxidation is accelerated by moisture. Many reputable Roof Rack supplier coatings flake off over time and expose unsightly white aluminium corrosion. Aluminium oxidation happens faster than that of steel, because aluminium has a really strong affinity for oxygen. Rather than flaking though like rust on steel, aluminium oxide just forms a hard, unsightly whitish-coloured surface skin
Our Des Sol Aluminium Roof Rack is coated with a specialised high strength 5 stage coating process not used by any of our competitors preventing unsightly white deposits and ensuring that your Roof Racks will last you for as long as your passion for overlanding does.
Corrosion Protection – Aluminium Products (Roof Racks)
Stage 1 – Unique 5 stage Chromate Conversion – Hexavalent chromium compounds are used to block off Nano capillaries in the aluminium to improve the corrosion resistance,
Stage 2 – Epoxy coating.
Note: This corrosion protection process conforms to both military and aerospace specifications improving the adherence of the final epoxy coating to the aluminium.
