How Powder Coating Makes the Refurbishment Easy

Posted by George Warren on July 13th, 2018

Alloy wheels are used very commonly used by everyone, as they help you to make your vehicle more attractive.It’s so easy to maintain and repair alloy wheels, that’s also considered to be important reason of their popularity. You can repair the alloy wheels even by yourself but if you are not experienced enough then you should prefer to hire a specialist.

Powder Coating:

While refurbishing the wheels the professionals will take off the tire from the vehicle. After that, he will strip the entire finishing of the wheel and then do the repairing on it. Most common form of repairing the powder coating prices in Manchester, in this process rim is dry paint powder is charged electro statically and then this mixture is pitched to an electrically stuck piece of metal. After that powder is strained on the metal thru spraying process and them it is baked in a curing oven.

Powder Coating Process

Actually it depend upon the condition of alloy wheels that you could do powder coating or not. Some people prefer to paint the tires simply but if wheels are damaged so much then it will be better to do powder coating of your alloy wheels. Here we are discussing about the process of alloy wheel powder coating;

  1. first of all wheel specialist will prefer to deflate the tires and then he will remove it from the vehicle.
  2. After that they will treat the wheels with hot pressure for removing the excess dirt & grime.
  3. After that these tires will be kept into a chemical stripping tank for removing old paint and lacquer coatings.
  4. After that wheels are casually grit blasted for removing blemishes or corrosion.
  5. Then specialist will treat the damages or scratches present on the surface of the rim and do powder coating. After that wheels will be kept in hot oven for 20 minutes so that the alloy gets de-gassed before applying the primer of powder coat.
  6. After that paint will be applied to the wheels for this you can apply bespoke finish which are basically spray painted and then these tires will be put back into the oven for more 40 minutes.
  7. After that final lacquer will be applied to wheels and then it will be ready.

 

Any Drawbacks?

  • If by mistake alloy gets damaged or you have applied scrub on the finished rim, then for correcting it you have to repeat all the repairing process all over again.  Basically powder coating is more vulnerable to stone chips just because its finishing is more firm.
  • The main issue with powder coating process is that most of the people don’t prefer to phosphate the rims before starting the repair that may lead to rough finishing, so you should clean the tires before starting a repair.
  • Basically Alloy Wheel Powder Coating are made up with alloy blend of aluminium. And it’s a fact that aluminium oxidises rapidly. Just like Iron's rust, the colour of aluminium's oxidation is also the same just like its base metal.
