Heavy-duty construction equipment is made from some of the most durable materials on Earth, but that doesn’t mean it’s invulnerable. Exposure to the rough conditions of a job site introduces sand, dirt and water to its surfaces. This leads to abrasion and rust, causing even the strongest metals to break down over time. This can have a significant impact on the performance and lifespan of loaders, cranes, bulldozers and other types of heavy machinery. Protecting them from wear is a top priority because they represent a substantial investment and contractors depend on their equipment to do the job. One sure way to prolong the life of essential components is with heavy equipment finishing services. Rhinehart Finishing knows more about these processes and techniques than anyone else, making us the ideal choice for construction coating services.
We are known throughout the industry as a leader in comprehensive construction equipment coatings. Our advanced technology, complete capabilities and knowledgeable staff enable us to deliver construction coatings that can ensure parts are able to withstand the harshest conditions.
