POWDER COATING WHEELS

Do you want to refresh the look of your vehicle’s wheels? Finding the right look for your alloy wheels can be challenging. If you own a set of aluminium or alloy metal wheels (the most popular and common wheel type) and thinking of painting them, then you should check out our alloy wheel powder coating service.

WHAT IS POWDER COATING?

Powder coating takes its name from a dry-base chemical combination that is applied to the surface of the alloy wheel. After each rim is covered with a powder coat layer, the rims are heat-treated to produce a smooth, even and durable finish. The electrostatic bond created during the powder coating process along with the baking to cure the coat ensures that it produces a coating that is naturally thicker and more durable than liquid paint jobs. This result in a tough “skin” layer for your alloy wheels that will stand in any road conditions.

POWDER COATING WHEELS PROCESS

Step One

Preparation Work

Tyres are removed using professional equipment. Wheels are then hot pressure washed to remove excess dirt & grime. Then, each alloy wheel is placed into a chemical stripping tank to remove old paint & clear coat.

Step Two

Blast & Inspection

Wheels are lightly material blasted to remove blemishes and corrosion. Each alloy wheel is inspected for damage especially the face and lip of the rim for any deep scratches or cracks. Any damage will be repaired before the next step.

Step Three

Powder Coat Application

CNC’s in-house powder coating facility has been developed specifically for handling wheels. The wheels are pre-heated in an industrial oven to de-gas the alloy, then a powder coat primer is applied. The rims are then cooled down. The final clear coat is applied and the wheels are then put back into the oven for a further 30 minutes.

Step Four

Final Visual Inspection

Once cooled and inspected for quality, the wheels ready to be refitted with tyres and are electronically balanced. Your newly powder coated wheels are fitted onto your vehicle. The result is vibrant, even and uniform look along with an exceptionally durable and long-lasting finish for your rims.

POWDER COATING FINISHES

Powder coating offers a wide selection of colours and finishes to choose from. It can be a standard finish such as black, silver, and white or a custom finish such as red, bronze, and shadow chrome.  Similar to traditional alloy wheel spray paint, you can select your preferable powder coat colour and then select the finish. There are three available powder coat finishes to choose from in order to achieve your desired results.

HIGH GLOSS FINISH

If you like your wheels to pop up with a high shine finish, then gloss finish powder coat is your choice. It provides a smooth, glossy and luxurious factory-like finish. This powder coat finish will turn heads every time a strong reflection sparkle your ride as the rims roll.

SATIN FINISH (SEMI-GLOSS)

If gloss is too sparkling and matte is too flat for you, then the perfect middle option is a satin finish. Semi-gloss finish is less reflective and at the same time not too flat – just in between. Satin powder coat allows just the right amount of reflection to shows the natural appearance of the wheel.

MATTE FINISH

Matte powder coat finish is a common choice among car enthusiasts that want to showcase a more sporty look to their ride. Matte finish creates an aggressive, tough and race-inspired appearance, making it extremely popular with aftermarket tunes, sedan cars, SUV’s and 4×4 trucks.

    6 BENEFITS OF POWDER COATING

    From the cost of coating to the durability and environmental impact, powder is a very effective way to provide a high quality finish to your alloy wheels.

    1. Powder coating is more durable

    Powder Coating provides the most economical, longest-lasting, and most colour-durable quality finishes available on virtually any type of metal. Powder coated rims are more resistant to chipping, scratching, fading, and wearing than traditional spray paint. The finish stays bright and vibrant longer.

    2. More Environmental Friendly

    Powder Coating is highly protective to our environment. While liquid finishes contain solvents that have pollutants known as volatile organic compounds (VOC’s), powder coating contains no solvents and release minor amounts, if any, of VOC’s into the atmosphere.

    3. Processing time reduced

    Powder coat processing times are generally shorter than those used for traditional spray paint because there is no solvent, meaning no flash off period is required. Instead, powder coated wheels can pass directly into the oven.  This results in significant time savings.

    4. Overall finish quality

    Since the powder melts and reforms as solid, it creates an even surface across the entire rim. This results in a quality finish that is unlike any other paint on the market. In addition, powder coating is not subject to unevenness, running or dripping, which are common among wet paints.

    5. Variety of finishes

    While there are some common colours and finishes used in powder coating, one of the best features of this method is the ability to entirely customize your colour and finish. Also, a huge range of finishes from high gloss all the way down to matte options available, making it leading with this variety and versatility.

    6. Maintainance

    Powder coating is easy to maintain; no special cleaners are required. There’s no need to worry about rust or other cleaning-related damage because these coatings are so resistant to corrosion and damage. In most cases, an occasional wipe with soapy water is enough to keep your rims clean and useful for years to come.
