Also, how it can slowly devastate our beds. As a business that wants to help protect your assets, we recognize how harsh winter weather is and its damages. We can think of a few ways we have seen the impacts leave marks.

 

 

Abrasion

Having a safe driving environment for all who are on the road is essential. That goal gets accomplished with salt spreading. Salt, as well as rocks and other road debris mixed in with snow, are abrasives that will quickly leave the metal in your truck bed scratched beyond belief. Though these surface scratches might seem minor, they can rapidly decrease the value of your vehicle.

 

Corrosion

In addition to being abrasive, salt can also cause corrosion. When mixed in with snow and ice, it is nearly impossible to separate the elements. Since salt water is an excellent conductor for corrosion, you can bet that when warmer weather nears, you will see the difference in your exterior. These acidic properties will eat away at your clear coat and paint. Thenm cause rust in the bed of your truck far quicker than you can imagine.
