We firstly take the wheels of the car and securely place the car on axel stands in our work shop. The tire is then professionally removed from the wheel with our top of the range lever less machine. No pry bars needed here!
The wheel will be placed in the chemical bath, this will strip the wheel of all previous paint and lacquer. This will take the alloy down to bare metal. It will Then be neutralised and cleaned.
Wheel repair and shot blasting
Now we have the wheel down to bear metal we can asses and repair any damage to the surface. The wheel will then be shot blasted to remove any remnants of paint and lacquer. Shot blasting also gives the surface of the wheel the best possible condition prior to the powder coating and painting process.
Primer and colour coat
Now the wheel will undergo the powder coating process where the wheel will be 100% covered in powder paint and lacquer(front and back). Before any powder is applied the wheel will firstly be pre heated in the oven to release any trapped gases. Then the wheel will be placed in our top of the range water backed spray booth. The water backed booth supplies a steady running supply of water behind the wheel to eliminate any potential contamination to give you the real just out the factory look.
Now the wheels will be baked in the oven at 180 degrees to ensure a full cure, and crystal clear finish.
Once the wheels have cooled down the tires will be re fitted to the wheels, new valves will be fitted and then the wheel will be balanced.
Finally, the wheels will be refitted to the car and wheel nuts will be torqued to the manufactures specification.
If your tires are near the end of there life, let us know! We can order new tires at our trade price and fit them to your newly powder coated wheels.
The performance characteristics of OE powder coating exceed the characteristics achieved from conventional solvent based coatings. A powder coated surface is a long-lasting, high quality finish resistant to cracking, peeling, fading and scratching, leaving the surface abrasion, corrosion and chemically resistant. Powder coating is available in a wide range of finishes.
