Chrysalis Fabrication

We offer corrosion repairs on any vehicle. This includes investigation, reporting and procedure writing, material manufacture and installation. We also offer corrosion protection to inhibit and prevent future corrosion. Our work is carried out by coded welders who can conduct steel or aluminium welding and repairs. Corrosion repairs regularly forms part of a lot of the projects we work on.

Here is an example of some of the corrosion work we have conducted:

Class 150’s Corrosion & Exterior Paint/ Re-livery

We investigated the extent of the corrosion and agreed the scope of work with the client. We removed the skin and pillars and used a needle gun on any areas of corrosion. We replaced the existing pillars with new pillars and skins. Finally, we sealed with industry recognised inhibitors and sealants.
