Hidden corrosion is a huge problem in the bus & RV industries. Most of these vehicles look absolutely gorgeous with their composite outer skins. What about the metal corroding underneath those outer skins? What about those fasteners holding those compartment doors? What about the bumpers and frame rails all made of metal? What about safety?
Some of these vehicles include a mixture of dissimilar metals. Steel frame rails assembled to aluminum cross members and aluminum floors assembled to steel frames. Anytime you mix dissimilar metals such as steel and aluminum, sooner or later corrosion will always occur. What you can't see, can hurt you!
Many states and municipalities have repair centers that constantly provide corrosion repair for buses and other vehicles. Some of these use Eck® for the repair process. Sometime hundreds of buses await corrosion repair at these centers. Corrosion of buses and RV's is a big issue.
If you are responsible for ordering or doing a specification for a bus purchase make sure you ask if the manufacturer uses Eck®. Some of the manufacturers of buses and RV's use Eck®, does yours?
