The Boss Product Evolution team have designed and built world class parts right here in Australia to suit Australian conditions for a while and we have achieved outstanding success in an environmentally friendly way. Adding to goal of delivering the top quality products in an environmentally way BOSS is changing the way we make the plates that form part of our Load Assist kits.
We are transitioning from standard zinc coated products to a more robust and corrosion resistant coating that sets them apart from all other load assist kits components.
Most manufacturers of similar products use the old technology of zinc coating that is prone to rust and the manufacturing process releases chemicals that can damage the environment and are a heath risk to humans such as Chromium, Lead, Cyanide and Cadmium (a great toxic brew). So if a better product can be produced that is rust resistant and environmentally friendly why not use it ! Well we now do.
BOSS is now using a process called EDP otherwise known as E-coat or Electrophoretically Deposited Paint and Powder coating.
What does that mean ? Unlike other electroplated or powder coatings, the EDP process is capable of coating deep recesses in complex shapes while maintaining a uniform thickness. It provides corrosion resistance under neutral salt spray test conditions. This environmentally friendly coating has enabled the automobile and outboard motor manufacturers of the world to give extensive corrosion warranties in worldwide markets under severe salted roads and saltwater environments.
EDP is the first part of the finishing process, the second part is Powder Coating.
The benefits of powder coating for consumers are simple: Powder coating will make your purchase look better and last longer – not to mention its reduced environmental footprint! Powder coating is already found on thousands of products that you come in contact with everyday. From bulldozers and chainsaws to your coffee machine and household furniture, powder coating protects the roughest, toughest machinery as well as the household parts that you depend on daily.
The result of choosing a powder coated product is that it will have the most attractive, durable, high-quality finish available today. So when you are comparing BOSS products with other brands such as the BOSS copy product -Thor, make sure you do your research well, ask all the right questions so you can make a informed decision.
