HOW Alcoa® Wheels IS MADE?

ALCOA FORGED ALUMINIUM RIMS

ENDURING WHEELS

Alcoa® Wheels successfully pass the LBF test, which means they meet the requirements that truck manufacturers insist on.

The LBF test is a biaxial fatigue test for truck wheels. When verifying the durability of the rim, the actual driving conditions (turning conditions, deformation and operational load) are taken into consideration.

Your benefit, our commitment

Alcoa® Wheels are forged with a single solid aluminum block. The shape of the rim is then forged with an 8000 ton press. Then the tires are subjected to a heat treatment to maximize the overall mechanical resistance. The forging process of Alcoa® Wheels aligns the aluminum granulate with the shape of the rim even in the area of conjunction between the disc and the flange. This process makes the forged tires an unmatched strenght, which withstands the most severe tests.

Alcoa® Wheels FINISHINGS

Dura-bright® EVO

GOOD LOOKING, EASY MAINTENANCE

Alcoa® Wheels are available with the patented Dura-Bright® EVO surface treatment, which keeps them shiny for years without polishing. Its maintenance is extremely simple thanks to the improved protection of the specialized aluminum surface. Dura-Bright® EVO tires can withstand cleaning chemicals between pH2 and pH12.


Dura-Bright® is not a coating, is a surface treatment that penetrates the aluminum and becomes an integral part of the wheel. It does not splinter, crack, peel or corrode like conventional coatings.

Dura-Bright® treatment is available for virtually all sizes of Alcoa® Wheels.

LvL ONE®

Other striking solutions for clients

The advanced Arconic LvL ONE® technology provides a brilliant finish. The LvL ONE® surface is softer and brighter than a semi-polished surface, but requires the usual work for maintenance. If you want a shiny surface, it will be necessary to polish it. However, the rim looks great and offers the same advantages as the other Alcoa® Wheels finishes.

HALF POLISHED

Semipulido is a finish that requires basic maintenance. Semi-polished tires are very common in large fleets where trailers are frequently changed. Alcoa® Wheels semi-polished wheels do not rust and do not need to be repainted.

SPECIAL APPLICATIONS

DURA-FLANGE®

Additional protection for a longer service life.

Alcoa® Wheels Dura-Flange® wheels have been subjected to an exclusive treatment that provides a protective shield that reduces the wear of the flange.

The Dura-Flange® wheels are the most suitable for the transport of heavy loads that tend to move and cause rubbing of the walls of the tires with the edge of the eyelashes.

The rims come in a semi-polished finish and are available in the most common rim sizes. For more information, see the specification sheet.

WORKHORSE®

Protection of the disc brakes and increase of the load of the rim.

Alcoa® Wheels WorkHorse® wheels were designed without ventilation holes to protect the brake discs from the front and drive axle of sand and gravel.

The WorkHorse® wheels are especially suitable for vehicles for the construction sector with disc brakes. The rims come in a semi-polished finish and are available in certain rim sizes: and 22.5 "x 11.75", or 120 mm set.
