Advantica for refrigerated trailers
Overview

Our innovative range of steel products for use in refrigerated commercial vehicles have been developed to ensure the world’s leading trailer manufacturers get the best from our pre-finished steel solutions.

We have taken our knowledge and expertise from both the construction and manufactured goods sectors and re-engineered our Advantica? pre-finished steel to provide a ready to use, optimised solution for the inner and outer layers of composite panels used in the construction of refrigerated trailers.

Specifically developed to offer improved adhesion and create a superior bond, this ensures that the insulated panels are capable of coping with the most demanding environmental forces.
Our pre-finished steel provides the material of choice to help trailer manufacturers meet the challenges they face to provide clients with superior vehicles that offer benefits including:

?

  • Light weighting
  • Durability
  • Thermal efficiency
  • Accredited food safe compliance
  • Ease of cleaning
  • Aesthetic finish
  • Sustainability
  • Flexible and economical processing

Certification and performance?

Advantica?pre-finished steel for refrigerated trailers has been subjected to extensive testing and is well-proven in a wide variety of applications.?

Our products which are fully REACH compliant and chrome free, have been designed to provide exceptional performance, meeting the highest industry standards as required by end-users.

Highly resistance to the daily pressures that will be placed upon the internal and external faces of the main trailer (transporting, loading and unloading), Advantica?offers excellent levels of resistance to corrosion, damage, scratching, abrasion and wear and tear.


Robust in use

Internally, steel’s robustness makes it the ideal choice for providing a long-lasting composite panel solution that will cope excellently with the extensive day-to-day loading operations it will endure.

Externally, steel offers excellent abrasion and corrosion resistance and is capable of withstanding the wear and tear it can be subjected to including demanding weather conditions and road debris.

Moisture resistant

Advantica?pre-finished steel composite panels have superior moisture ingress resistance, and even if damaged the integrity of the pane is uncompromised as the robust steel layer won’t allow moisture to enter the insulation and surrounding surface area.

Easy to clean

The risk of contamination from one cargo to another is always a concern but can be dealt with easily through a routine cleaning procedure that is simple and effective:

  • High pressure water and mild detergent
  • Thorough rinse with clean water.

Please contact Tata Steel for advice on chemical resistance.

Easy to repair

Advantica?offers benefits for trailer maintenance and repair. A pre-finished steel composite panel system gives trained professionals the option to repair damage with cost-effective sectional repair, or full panel replacement.
Externally pre-finished steel composite panels can be overpainted and decals applied to give a new lease of life.

Food safe certification

Independently tested and certified for volatile organic compounds (VOC) and fully complaint with EN 16000-9. Advantica?L Control achieved an A+ rating.

Subjected to rigorous industrial testing Advantica?L Control meets stringent requirements for continuous food contact. Tested by an independent accredited laboratory to EN 1186, EN 13130 and CEN/TS 14234 standards.
