POWDER COATING PROCESS
There are a few different steps to the alloy powder coating process, all of them important to get you the best result. Here’s a quick summary of what we do to give your alloys that fresh out of the showroom look.
Before we can start to renew your alloy, we take the tyre from your wheel and give it a thorough pressure wash to make sure that all the dirt and street debris is removed and your alloy is clean.
Secondly, your alloy is put into a gentle chemical solution to strip the old paint layers away and give us a clear surface to work on.
Next, they are sanded to remove any kerb-damage or uneven areas – essential for the powder coating to look good.
The final part of the prep is to shot-blast the wheels to remove corrosion and aid the powder particles adhesion to the surface.
The powder coating is then applied using compressed air and an electrode to make sure that every single bit of the alloy is covered.
The last part of the powder coating process and the alloy is put into the curing oven – this gives it a smooth and durable finish. The curing creates a long-lasting surface which resists stone chips, wear and tear, and any other damage.
DIAMOND CUT PROCESS
To put an alloy through the diamond cut process, we have to prepare it with powder coating which is explained above. When we’ve done that, we are able to place it on the CNC machine and programme in the pattern for the diamond cut. When this has been done, we clean, cure and apply an anti-corrosive finish. To finish, we lacquer and cure it once more.
