MWS launches next generation Xbrite finish
Motor Wheel Service has launched its “next generation Xbrite” single part, transparent finish. The protective coating was specially developed for MWS, offering what the Wythenshawe-based distributor calls “the highest levels of corrosion resistance and unrivalled shine for xlite forged aluminium wheels”.
John Ellis, managing director of Motor Wheel Service, said: “The next generation Xbrite has been two years in development, and the end result is nothing short of brilliant. I state confidently that both the corrosion resistance and the extra bright appearance are the best on the market.”
The Xbrite coating is non-chromate and environmentally friendly, passing the most rigorous oxidation and salt spray tests. The company also states that it possesses excellent adhesion properties for a strong coat finish that allows for the easy removal of soil, grime and dust by applying high pressure water and a mild detergent. As the name suggests, the coating contributes to a lasting shiny finish on xlite wheels.
MWS claims that xlite wheels are five times stronger and 40 per cent lighter than the standard steel equivalent. They are forged from a single aluminium billet using a computerised numeric control machine to produce a higher degree of production accuracy. Other benefits include reduced vibration and longer wear on surrounding parts. Ultimately, the advantages of running the wheels to commercial vehicle operators include extra payloads, reduced diesel usage and decreased CO² emissions, MWS explains.
In addition to Xbrite, the wheels are available with machined and polished finishes in 17.5”, 19.5” and 22.5” sizes.
