Plombco Awarded Patent for Plasteel™ Product Line (Patent Number: US 8,628,149 B2)
Plombco Inc, one of the world’s largest wheel weight manufacturers, has been awarded a patent by the United States Patent Office for their Plasteel™ product line.
Plasteel™ is the first steel core clip-on wheel weight encased in a plastic overmold. The wheel weight market continues to shift toward non-lead wheel weights. Plasteel™ is the best non-lead wheel weight solution in the market. It is easy to install, has exceptional corrosion resistance, it looks great, and it doesn’t scratch the wheel.
“We knew there had to be a better solution than the steel and zinc weights that were out there”, said Claude Lussier, Plombco’s President. “While developing Plasteel™, we took into account all of the things people liked about lead weights, and eliminated the things people didn’t like about non-lead weights”.
