Mercedes S Class Full Alloy Wheel Refurbishment
We are one of the only companies around London offering a Full Powder Coating service for your Alloy wheels, meaning your Alloys are returned to you looking brand new – back to a Factory Finish! This means 100% of the wheel is Repaired and then Powder Coated, whereas other companies only repair the face of the wheel. To Powder Coat Alloys, they have to be bare aluminium, before we can apply the powder to them. We start the refurbishment process by taking off all the tyre’s, balancing weights and the old valves. We then Acid Dip and Sandblast the Alloys to completely remove all the old paint. The Alloy wheels are now back to bare metal (Aluminium). We then carry out any repairs which are required to damage areas such as Deep Kerbing, Crack’s, Corrosion, Alloy Wheel Straightening & other types of Alloy Wheel Welding. Next the Alloys must be prepared for Powder Coating by making any damaged areas smooth. We do not use any filler material’s on deep kerbing damage. All filler work is done via aluminium welding as you cannot Powder Coat onto filler, only metals. The reason for this is that the Powder Coat which is applied will only attract, bond and stick to pure metal.
Next we Powder Coat the entire Alloy Wheel– Inside and Out. The Powder Coating is applied to the Alloy Wheel whilst it is hung off a metal electrode, which negatively charges the whole structure of the Alloy Wheel. We then use a specialist Powder Coating Gun that releases the positively charged Powder on to the Alloy’s surface giving a true uniform layer of paint that provides a thicker and more durable finish than alternative wet spray finishes.
