Maxion Wheels, a division of Iochpe-Maxion S.A, announced it introduced the industry's first five-year standard warranty with its MaxCoat Extra multi-layer finish on the company's hub-piloted single and wide-base tubeless disc steel wheels sold in North America.
Maxion Wheels' MaxCoat Extra multi-layer finish includes E-coat and powder coating that provides edge protection and creates a baked-on finish that protects truck and trailer wheels from road and environmental conditions.
"Maxion Wheels is so confident in the performance and quality of its multi-layer finish on hub-piloted wheels that it now offers a five-year warranty as standard," said Don Polk, president of Maxion Wheels, Americas. "Our North American fleet customers are excited about the finish technology and the added protection it offers against normal road conditions and corrosion. A fleet owner can spend up to $1,260 to refinish all of its wheels on an 18-wheeler; with MaxCoat Extra finish you can avoid the expense and reduce your total cost of ownership."
