ADVANCED SURFACE TREATMENT
Dura-Flange® Wear Protection
Increasing Durability and Wear Resistance
The surface treatment that reduces or eliminates rim flange wear. Alcoa Dura-Flange® wheels feature a specially treated rim flange that extends service life for shifting load applications like transit, bus, tanker and heavy hauling. Our surface treatment solution protects against flange wear, providing at least double the life of other aluminum wheels.
Alcoa Dura-Flange® Wear Protection Wheels exhibit no signs of rim flange wear up to 240,000 miles of testing under extreme conditions.
Our protection system offers enhanced performance and productivity – and delays replacement costs for applications like transit, bus, tanker and heavy hauling.
