Wheel Powder Coating Services
Alloy wheel powder coating requires a different process than traditional rim painting or spraying. The end result is often visually appealing, but it requires an experienced technician to avoid many potential mistakes. The best process relies heavily on preparation and attention to detail.
Initially, the tires and TPMS sensors are removed. The wheels can then be thoroughly cleaned, and all outer coatings stripped away using a chemical process. Before the next stage can begin, your wheels are inspected for any cracks, marks or other issues that would interfere with the end product.
The wheel custom coloring stage requires electrostatically charged pigments to be sprayed onto the wheels. The powder coat particles form an even layer that bonds to the entire wheel. The wheels are then cured in an oven to create a smooth, tough finish. Additionally, a clear coat lacquer is added to protect the powder coat and provide long-lasting protection.
After the wheels have cooled, they can be inspected for any imperfections. When they have passed inspection, the wheels and tires are refitted to your vehicle.
