New York, NY - Alcoa has rolled out its most durable, easy-to-maintain commercial truck wheel. The Dura-Bright® EVO wheel, the wheel stands up stronger against the weather, road salts, grime and cleaning agents that can corrode and dull standard commercial truck wheels, says the company. Alcoa’s new surface-treated Dura-Bright ® EVO wheel maintains all the benefits of its predecessor, the Dura-Bright ® wheel with XBR ® technology, while taking the wheel’s performance to a new level. The Dura-Bright EVO wheel is 10 times more resistant to corrosion primarily caused by road salts and weather elements. In addition, the wheel is up to three times more resistant to chemicals, including hydrofluoric acid, found in the toughest truck wash cleaning agents. This enables the use of a wider variety of cleaning solutions to simplify maintenance, while preserving the integrity and brightness of the wheel. The Dura-Bright EVO wheel is now commercially available in Europe, where the Company has already seen significant adoption of its Dura-Bright wheels. Alcoa has begun producing the wheel at its manufacturing plant in Székesfehérvár, Hungary. The wheel is expected to be available in all other markets in 2015.
