Jockey Wheels Used On Boat Trailers


Jockey Wheels For Boat Trailers

We knows that boat trailers are used to transport boats. Most of the boats are used in the sea.  Sea water contents salt, which is very corrosive. This is why 90% of boats trailers are made of aluminum or galvanized steel material.

The use of the boats trailer determines that the accessories used on it must have strong corrosion resistance. Not only the accessories on the boats trailer need to be hot-dip galvanized, but the jockey wheels used on the boats trailers should also be hot-dip galvanized instead of zinc plating.

Most of the jockey wheels on the market are zinc plating surface finish. However, zinc plating jockey wheels will get rusty very soon.

Below is the advantages of hot-dip galvanized jockey wheels.

1. Coating of hot-dip galvanized is thicker and more resistant to corrosion than zinc plating.  Our hot-dip galvanized jockey wheel coating is more than 60μ. Hot-dip galvanized jockey wheels will not rust for a few years. But zinc plating jockey wheels will rust very soon if used in a humid environment.

2. The surface of the electroplated zinc has only a thin layer. It is very bright at the beginning but it will change color after a period. If the seller does not sell them in time, it will affect the sales because the changed surface. As the hot-dip galvanized coating is thick and stable, even if it is left for a long time, the surface color will not change. Seller do not need to worry about surface changing affecting sales.

3. The surface of the zinc plating jockey wheel is easy to be scratch. If it is scratched the scratched area is easily rusted. The surface of the hot-dip galvanized is hard and is not easily scratched.


Hot-dip galvanized jockey wheels have many advantages over zinc plating jockey wheels. Because of the different surface treatments, hot-dip galvanized jockey wheels need more procedures.


If it is zinc plating surface treatment, it can be assembled directly after surface treatment. After hot dip galvanizing there are excrescent zinc on edges, which need to be removed manually. The grinding process is labor intensive and time consuming. The cost of hot-dip galvanized is also higher than that of zinc plating. So hot-dip galvanized jockey wheels are expensive than zinc plating jockey wheels.


In short, the hot-dip galvanized jockey wheel is more resistant to corrosion and durability, and is very suitable for use on boat trailers
