We offer a full powder coating service for your alloy wheels, meaning your alloys are returned looking brand new – back to a factory finish! 100% of the wheel is repaired and then powder coated, whereas other companies only repair the face of the wheel.
We start the refurbishment process by taking off all the tyre’s, balancing weights, centre caps 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 welding deep kerbing, crack’s, corrosion repairs & alloy wheel straightening. 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 poating 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.
There are many different types of powders and wet sprayed paint colours we use when refurbishing alloy wheels. These range from Primers, base coats & specialist colour finishes such as smoked-chrome & hyper-silvers. After which a thick layer of clear powder coat lacquer is applied to provide protection and extra gloss . The alloys are heated up in a specialist alloy wheel powder coating oven which takes the wheels up to temperature’s of around 180-200oC, whilst curing the powder coated paint to the alloys.
All Alloy Wheels Repaired and Fully Refurbished by The Wheel Medics are Acid dipped, Sandblasted, and then Powder Coated, Diamond Cut or Polished if necessary. New valves are supplied free of charge and a free tyre change is also available if necessary. All Alloy Wheels are also FULLY examined to check if Alloy Wheel Straightening or Alloy Wheel Welding is required in any way.
