Fiat 500 Powder Coated & Diamond Cut Alloy Wheel Refurbishment
The Wheel Medics specialise in Alloy Wheel Refurbishment and Repairs offering Powder Coating and Diamond Cutting In London and the surrounding areas. The Wheel Medics are able to refurbish Alloy Wheels back to original condition no matter their finish. Most Alloy Wheel Refurbishment companies can only offer smart repairs, which means they do not even remove the tyre’s when refurbishing the Alloys- Which means they defiantly don’t offer Powder Coating or Diamond Cutting Services. Watch the Video of the CNC Lathe- Diamond Cutting. More on Alloy Wheel Repairs.

A CNC Lathe is used to Diamond Cut the face of the Alloy Wheels. The Polished finish is created with a fine edged diamond point, which runs across the face surface of the alloy, while it is spinning round at high speed completely symmetrically. The diamond etches a completely flat design onto the surface of the alloy, which is all computerised to give a precision cut and also avoids mistakes, caused by human error. Diamond Cutting leaves a completely immaculate polished finish on the wheel’s face surface. The main reason why it takes longer to refurbish Diamond Cut wheels is because after Refurbishing the Wheel in 1 full colour, the Alloy then has to be Diamond Cut on the CNC lathe, so the face can be Polished. Then the alloy wheel needs a layer of clear coat lacquer applied to protect the polished finish, from weathering effects, which cause corrosion.
Most of our Customers choose to go with a Powder Coated Finish instead of Re-Diamond Cutting (BMW M3 Wheels) their Alloys as the Powder Coated Finish, is a lot more durable and is not prone to Corrosion problems like Diamond Cut Polished Alloy Wheels are.
