STEEL-IT for Motorsports: Protect Your Investment

STEEL-IT’s Over 40-Year Track Record Protecting Metal Across Diverse Industries, Now Proves Its Value In Off-Road

STEEL-IT’s Over 40 Year’s Track Record Protecting Metal Across Diverse Industries, Now Proves Its Value in Off-RoadWhere To Buy CanadaWhere To Buy U.S.For over 4 years, STEEL-IT Polyurethane coating has become the choice of leading off-road builders and race teams who value the coating’s superior performance, protecting suspensions, chassis, and other metal parts that require a proven, durable shield against corrosion, high speed impact from rocks, and other objects that batter their vehicles while competing on some of the world’s most punishing race courses. Moreover, STEEL-IT’s weldability is a signature benefit that saves racing teams hours of repair time.

STEEL-IT: What It is and How It Works

STEEL-IT achieves its superior level of performance by embedding custom-engineered 316L stainless steel micro flakes in various resins including polyurethane, epoxy, and silicon depending on the formulation and combining these with additional anti-corrosive elements. Although the individual flakes are indiscernible to the naked eye, under a microscope, STEEL-IT coatings show a neat horizontal layered alignment of tightly overlapping, pure 316L flakes that form a metallic barrier film near the coating’s surface. This stainless steel shield makes materials coated with STEEL-IT nearly impervious to corrosion and corrosive elements while providing a durable finish that resists scratching and flaking even under the most challenging conditions.

When you want to WIN, you have to have the best truck, mechanic and parts. That’s why we use STEEL-IT coatings.
Geiser Bros
Design and Development
We did the whole Honda with STEEL-IT. I had heard about STEEL-IT used in marine applications and wanted to try it. It has performed beyond our expectations; we really like the stuff. Because the stainless flakes are conductive, you can weld directly over it. Unlike powder coating, it is easy to see hairline fractures when they are small and repair them quickly. It’s easy to touch up areas after making repairs; it sprays on nicely with a medium thick coat that does not run like spray paint. After racing the Baja 500 and the Baja 1000, the parts we coated with STEEL-IT still looked like new. The Ridgeline was a ground up build, but we do all types of fabrication at LaFortune Race Cars. Many times, our customers have us build their vehicles in stages. STEEL-IT allows you to pick up right where you left off without having to grind paint or remove rust. We tig weld most of our work so it’s critical to have good surfaces to work with. When we weld over STEEL-IT, the welds are clean and strong.
Jason LaFortune, Race Car Builder
Racing the Baja 1000 can take its toll on our race equipment. That’s why Team Honda chooses to coat and protect all bare steel parts with STEEL-IT: The chassis, front arms, rear arms, tie rods, four links, etc. Any part of the truck that may rust is coated with STEEL-IT. Put simply, STEEL-IT saves us money in labor to clean and scrub off the chassis after every race as well as saving us time to clean up and begin preparing for our next race. We wouldn’t race in Mexico without all bare steel parts coated with STEEL-IT. It is common for teams to powder coat their chassis, however powder coating can hide micro cracks at key points in the chassis, stress fractures may go undiscovered an cause a failure or serious injury.

Additionally, if we have to make a field repair, our team would have to remove the powder coating first. With STEEL-IT our team can make field repairs easily since we can see the cracks through the STEEL-IT coating and then weld directly over the coating. STEEL-IT also makes it easy to touch up and front arms and areas of the chassis that might get sandblasted or rock-chipped during a race. STEEL-IT ensures that we fulfill our responsibility to properly represent American Honda.
Jeff Proctor, Principal, Team Honda Ridgeline
In off-road races, prep time is of the essence. After each race, our trophy trucks are brought back to the shop, and completely stripped, inspected, rebuilt, and turned back into the showpieces the fans like to see at the start of every race. We need something to protect all of the parts that we disassemble and reassemble after each race to keep them looking great, and it’s critical that we achieve this quickly. Not only does STEEL-IT allow us to take a clean, inspected chromoly component and give it a stainless steel coating to prevent rust and corrosion, but we’re able to weld through STEEL-IT in the field during an emergency repair. Depending upon the terrain and the amount of abuse the parts see during each race, we can easily repaint or touch up as necessary during prep. By coating parts with STEEL-IT, we save countless hours of having to scrub off rust and dirt. Also between races, STEEL-IT makes cleanup very easy since it withstands pressure washing and degreasing without chipping or flaking.

We used to powder coat parts and chassis. Without a doubt they look great initially, but once out in the desert, they soon look abused and are very hard to maintain when repairs are needed. Coating parts with STEEL-IT, however, makes it easy to see cracks so we can quickly identify where repairs are needed and then use STEEL-IT’s handy aerosol for fast touchup. On top of that, STEEL-IT is less expensive than powder coating.

We therefore strongly recommend using STEEL-IT instead of powder coating parts. STEEL-IT easily handles the abuse we put these trucks through each time we’re out on the race course.
