Most trailer owners consider factors such as payload capacity, durability, and manoeuvrability before purchasing a trailer. Trailers manufacturers typically use different build materials including steel and aluminium. There are also galvanised trailers, and hot dip galvanised trailers, among others.
More recently, trailers made out of polyethylene are becoming more common, and the TuffMate 2000 trailer is a leader in this field. You might be wondering: what is a TuffMate 2000 trailer, and why is it made of polyethylene? Read on to find out more about the Tuffmate 2000 trailer.
What is the TuffMate2000 Trailer?
The TuffMate2000 is an innovative polyethylene trailer designed and manufactured in-house by a team of experts at Trailers 2000. The TuffMate 2000 is a product of deep research and collaboration with some of the finest leaders in engineering, industrial design and plastics engineering.
Wholly designed and developed in Australia, the TuffMate2000 is made of high-impact resistant Linear Low Density Polyethylene (LLDPE) and other quality trailer parts. With this, you have an ultra tough trailer that is lightweight, anti-rust, and does not fade.
The TuffMate 2000 is available in two options; 6′ x 4′ box trailer (1800 mm x 1200 mm) with 300 mm deep sides, and 7′ x 4′ box trailer (nominal size 2100 mm x 1200 mm) with 400 mm deep sides.
When you get a TuffMate 2000 trailer, you’re buying a lifetime companion as it is a multi-purpose trailer tried and trusted for its incredible durability.
What material is the TuffMate2000 made of?
The TuffMate 2000 Trailer is made of polyethylene, which makes it one step ahead of traditional trailers. Polyethylene is arguably the most durable variant of plastic due to chemical makeup. Also known as PE, this material comes from petroleum polymers and has the attributes to withstand environmental hazards.
Polyethylene is not only anti-corrosion, it is also weatherproof. Other trailers pale in comparison to the TuffMate 2000 because of its outstanding features.
Since trailers can be used to carry almost anything, the trailer design has to be sturdy, corrosion resistant, and durable. Polyethylene trailers like the TuffMate 2000 deliver all of this with better durability and resistance to the elements.
Benefits of Polyethylene as a trailer material
Trailers2000 decided to use polyethylene as the build material for the TuffMate 2000 due to its excellent properties. Besides its anti-rust features, polyethylene is also impact resistant, provides enhanced protection, and is extremely lightweight. Here are some other exceptional qualities of polyethylene.
- Great tensile strength
One common misconception among people is that since polyethylene is flexible and light, it lacks strength. Nothing could be further from the truth. Even low-density polyethylene is incredibly solid, and with a high-density material like that used for the TuffMate 2000, you get a very sturdy trailer.
Polyethylene is incredibly robust, and trailers made from its compounds have the ability to withstand stress, impacts, and damage. Additionally, the TuffMate 2000 doesn’t suffer as much fatigue or abrasion wear as other trailer build materials. This is mainly due to the high levels of ductility in polyethylene. Ductile materials generally have the capacity to flex or stretch under pressure. Instead of breaking, a ductile material has the capacity to take lots of strain.
The TuffMate 2000 also has great resistance against corrosion and like every other plastic, it won’t rust. Moreover, bacteria, mould, and other growth do not cause it to rot.
TuffMate2000 is a trailer for life, it is a heavy duty trailer that is long lasting and corrosion resistant. This trailer can be used for any type of work and is the only trailer that you can leave corrosive material in and it won’t be harmed.
If you’re concerned about the environment like Trailers 2000, then the TuffMate2000 is for you. This trailer can be recycled after years of use. What’s more? It requires far less energy for the production process than other trailer build materials. It also leaves less waste than aluminium and steel.
