Out now: the Sidem 2024 catalogue for steering and suspension parts.
Some of you may recognize this feeling. Let’s say you have created something but think “I can improve this”. Well, we’ve had such a feeling with our metal sheet track control arms. That’s why we have coated them with cataphoresis. Read all about why here.
The advantages of a cataphoresis coating
We thought a cataphoresis coating would bring quite some added value to our metal sheet track control arms. It has plenty of advantages that we would like to share with you.
Primarily, cataphoresis provides a better coating adhesion, which protects the parts even better against rust. Besides that, a cataphoresis coating provides the same layer thickness over the complete part. Even on the hidden surfaces of a complex track control arm. As a result, the arm is equally protected over the surface and has a uniform surface appearance. The coating also prevents corrosion from starting from the inside of the track control arm.
But there’s more! Cataphoresis offers a good protection against mechanical damage, which prevents the paint from peeling off after an impact on the surface.
And finally: cataphoresis is an environmental-friendly method of coating because of its low emission of volatile harmful particles. This way, we contribute to a greener planet.
After reading the above, it’s needless to say that our metal sheet track control arms are excellently protected against rust. Providing more security on the road.
Ball joint lubrication is important to prevent the part from drying out, corroding and wearing. The grease used in Sidem parts is co-engineered with Klüber Lubrication and assures a much longer life time due to a smoother movement and protection against water infiltration. Sidem always engineers its parts with in mind the longest possible lifespan, maximum safety, comfort and an easy installation.
