Innovative surface coating technology protects all components from corrosion – especially in harsh winter logging.

The right surface treatment is the foundation for durable and long-lasting surface protection. Through this innovative technology for surface coating, PALFINGER creates a quality standard that is usually only found in the automobile industry.


1. The crane components are cleaned of all impurities by means of cut steel shot blasting.

2. The components are degreased, rinsed, activated and coated with zinc phosphating in the individual immersion tanks.

3. After two additional rinsing processes, the surfaces are passivated as well as rinsed with pure water.

4. The electrostatic cathodic dip painting follows by immersing the crane components completely in the paint.

5. Excess paint is washed off in two additional operations with an ultra-filtration rinse.

6. Afterwards, the paint is cured at a temperature of 115 degrees for 1.5 hours.

7. Crane components are then given a top coat in a further work step by means of a spray robot. The two component finish coat paint is water-soluble and environmentally friendly.
