Welcome back to the Trailer Blocks Blog.
We here at Trailer Blocks have an exciting announcement we’d like to share with you today. As part of our on-going efforts to better serve the trailer performance community, we have added Type II anodized Trailer Blocks as an optional feature for our lift/lowering kits. Adding this surface technology to your blocks will help you get the most out of your installation in all sorts of environments, such as harsh winter roads and boating/marine applications.
"This option is selected using the second drop-down on the product pages."
“Anodizing” refers to a basic electrochemical process performed on the metal which induces a protective layer of aluminum oxide on the lift/lowering blocks. The aluminum oxide coating is not painted on, but fully integrated into the metal and as such; it will not chip or peel off over time. This oxidized layer greatly increases the block surface’s resistance to corrosion, as well as offering a more durable finish to withstand harsh environmental conditions on the road. It is worth pointing out that while anodizing does provide additional exterior protection for our lift blocks, it does not increase their strength or weight rating. This option is designed to provide better resistance to dissimilar metal corrosion electrically isolating the Trailer Block from the steel it is in contact with on the axle and leaf spring.
We're excited to offer you another high-quality solution to lift or lower your trailers. If you have any questions about our anodized blocks, please contact us via email, social media or leave a comment below and we’ll be happy to help you out.
