Trucks and trailers have high requirements regarding durability and abrasion resistance in actual use. Helios offers advanced coating solutions for the manufacturing and maintenance of medium and heavy-duty trucks, including tank trucks, dump trucks, cranes, and concrete mixer trucks, as well as truck bodies, truck chassis, truck cabins, truck upgrades, and truck trailers. For the outer components of vehicles, different coatings are required, because the surfaces can be made of various materials, e.g. ABS, PP, PE laminate, steel or galvanized steel sheet metal. Following installation, the cab of a truck has to look even and consistent, regardless of the base materials and varnishing technology.
