Electrolysis Knowledge

Car Mate Trailers, Inc. has taken expensive and extreme measures to protect your trailer unit from electrolysis.  A full, two coat paint and primer on all steel parts along with self sealing, elastic, weather protective tapes (tar tape) have nearly eliminated all chemical reactions between the dissimilar metals of steel and aluminum.  It is virtually impossible to prevent all corrosion between these two metals.  Some of the highly corrosive, electrolytic properties within road maintenance products saturate nearly everything.  If driving in these conditions, great care should be taken on the operator's part to wash these chemicals away.
