Talbert Manufacturing has manufactured its first trailer with Corsol WB Corrosion Protection, a complete metal treatment system that protects the steel from the corrosive effects of magnesium chloride, calcium chloride, sodium chloride, rock chipping, acid rain and extreme temperatures.

The Corsol WB system from PRP Industries is used as an alternative to hot-dipped galvanizing due to exceptional performance, lower weight and cost, according to the company. The result is a satin black finish that prevents corrosion from degrading the metal components.

Corsol WB is ideal for haulers who transport through snow melting agents in the Midwest or salty conditions along the coastal regions, where the chemicals have become increasingly corrosive and damaging to trailers. It has been shown that components coated with Corsol and used in those regions have reached 15 years of age with little or no deterioration, according to the company.

In addition to the available corrosion protection, Talbert’s 3553TA features a six-degree load angle for the towing and recovery industry, as well as rental equipment and construction equipment with low ground clearances. It has a 38-inch loaded deck height and is equipped with a 20,000-pound planetary winch. The winch is operated with a six-function wireless remote, which allows one person to load a piece of equipment without leaving the tractor.
