The painting process

The standard of Shakanda’s quality and value can be found in the preparation and painting process.

Abrasive blasting to class 2.5 minimum, as per Australian standards, is used for both the inside and outside of the chipper bin. Next, the interior is primed with Dulux zinc-rich sacrificial primer and the exterior is painted in Glasurit 68 Line. The reduced solvent content allows commercial vehicle finishing to be done in an environmentally compatible manner – complying with VOC regulations – and makes the product line future-proof.

All joins are primed first, then sealed, making sure there are no areas left for moisture to penetrate and attack the steel, ensuring the best protection and longevity. Shakanda also offers a glassflake paint-coating option for the inside of chipper bins. This application is more resistant to the corrosive acid produced by woodchips, and suits customers looking for an upgrade and harder-wearing protection.

Shakanda also handles full cab resprays and can install RustStop Electronic Rust Protection during the build as options. RustStop protects the entire vehicle, inside and out, 24 hours a day.
