JOLIET, Ill. — Hendrickson Bumper and Trim has announced its lightweight AERO CLAD bumper is now available as a production option on the International ProStar tractor.
Composed of stainless clad aluminum, AERO CLAD is a fixed mount bumper maximizing style, durability, ground clearance and weight savings for this vehicle, according to Jeff Zawacki, general manager of Hendrickson’s bumper and trim division..
“Made by bonding high strength, corrosion resistant stainless steel to lightweight aluminum then polishing to a bright mirror finish, AERO CLAD bumpers offer a durable, lightweight and environmentally friendly alternative to chrome plating,” Zawacki said. “Utilizing state of the art metal forming and advanced materials, AERO CLAD for ProStar provides up to 2.75 inches of improved ground clearances, making it ideal for vocational applications. Backed by a 5-year limited corrosion warranty, the bright mirror finish is 10 times thicker than chrome and resists corrosion, peeling, cracking, pitting and fading.”
Zawacki said the bumper had been proven on International 9200, 9400, 9900i and WorkStar models.
“AERO CLAD for ProStar is the perfect choice for truckers trying to improve durability in on/off highway applications while giving their fleet a distinctive look that will set them apart from the pack,” Zawacki said.
