Aculon treatment has been approved as a balance weight adhesion promoter for use on aluminum wheels similar to Alcoa wheels with Dura-Bright® surface treatment. Independent testing shows Aculon Primer significantly enhances adhesion of wheel weight tape to Alcoa wheels with Dura-Bright® surface treatment in real world conditions. Proper and prolonged wheel balancing helps to extend the life of the tires.
Even though new tire manufacturing is more precise there are still many advantages to balancing wheels:
What is Dura-Bright?
Dura-Bright® is not a coating, but a surface treatment that penetrates the aluminum and becomes an integral part of the wheel. It will not chip, crack, peel or corrode, like conventional coatings do. Easier maintenance as very little sticks to it……including wheel weights.
What is new about Dura-bright EVO?
Evo is the next generation Dura-Bright® treatment with even better surface protection. "Great Looks – Easy Maintenance"
15 weights were provided (with tape attached) for testing. Wheel weights that were attached with Aculon's primer first had much higher peak loads.
