To maintain a consistent quality product and service at all times we have implemented a quality management system which performs as multiple levels:

This data is recorded in our computerized quality management software to ensure conformity to the product specification and complete traceability of each lot.
  • The powder coating process is also closely monitored. Features such as coating thickness, adherence and appearance are recorded for each manufacturing lot.
  • Packaging is checked in-line for accurate quantity, label conformity
    and appearance.
  • A final inspection prior to shipping is performed for each order as to ensure that the quantity on the order and on the delivery slip is the same.

Marketing support material

To help our clients market and sell our products we offer several tools such a product catalogs, application charts, flyers, rim gauges and product samples. These tools have been designed to contribute to the success of our distributors.

Plasteel ®

A WORLD PREMIERE

The market is shifting towards lead-free alternatives, and we have listened to the feedback from our customers in the field. Important issues, such as the increased popularity of clad wheels on new vehicles, demonstrated that there is a need for a better alternative than steel or zinc. Plombco has developed the first ever steel core wheel weight encased in a plastic shell.

Color Coding

Four differents materials

The universal color code is used on all labels, kits, application charts and gauges. You may refer to our application chart or rim gauge to select the right style of passenger car wheel weight that fits your application. Plombco is the only manufacturer in the world to propose four different materials.

Unique packaging

Our unique and practical packaging is made of high-quality corrugated cardboard and can help you save space in your warehouse. Each case is designed to ship two, four or eight boxes of wheel weights.

2 boxes per case

4 boxes per case

8 boxes per case

In addition, our adhesive roll boxes have a plastic brake newly designed. This feature prevents the wheel weight segments from retracting back into the box, when only a few segments are out of the opening.

Coating

We have spent years developing a coating that is compliant with the most stringent automobile manufacturer’s requirements. It protects against corrosion, resists discoloration from the sun and car-wash plus much more. In order to keep your car looking good, the color matches most wheels commonly used.

Uncoated wheel weights are a major cause of unsightly discoloration and degradation of the wheels. Plombco’s coated wheel weights feature a highly resistant and durable polyester coating which completely encapsulates the weight, thus assuring the protection of the wheel surface. We strongly recommend that these weights be used as they offer continued protection. Plombco offers the same top quality finish on all of the coated products.
