Alcoa Dura-Flange® Wheels
Additional protection for an even longer service life
Alcoa Dura-Flange® wheels have a proprietary treatment that provides a protective shield to prevent rim flange wear.
Alcoa Dura-Flange® wheels are the only wheels on the market that are protected from this type of wear, giving them at least double the life time of other aluminium wheels under the same conditions.
Road test results: we put Dura-Flange® wheels to the test and found that after 240.000 km, there were no signs of rim flange wear.
This treatment makes Dura-Flange® wheels most appropriate for transport where loads are heavy and prone to shifting, causing the tire bead to rub against the wheel flange.
• transport under extreme conditions, e.g. mining
• heavy hauling, e.g. logging
• tankers operating off road (e.g. local milk collection, fuel distribution)
• transit bus

By improving wheel durability and wear resistance, Alcoa Dura-Flange® wheels offer enhanced performance and productivity and delay replacement costs for many more miles.
Dura-Flange® wheels are available in the most common sizes. For part numbers, consult the Alcoa Specification Sheet on http://www.alcoa.com/alcoawheels/europe/en/info_page/wheel_specs_technical.asp.
Due to the Dura-Flange® treatment process, the wheels may experience some slight discoloration on the tyre side of the rim. No special maintenance is required for Dura-Flange® wheels.
