Acid strip and Powder coating
Powder coating is a type of coating that is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder. The coating is typically applied electrostatically and is then cured under heat to allow it to flow and form a "skin". It is usually used to create a hard finish that is tougher than conventional paint. We use powder coating most commonly for wheels that have needed acid stripping. These are wheels that contain corrosion or wheels repaired using DIY or improper techniques. It takes a few days to complete the repair, but we can come and remove your wheels at your address and convenience to take the hassle away.
Every wheel that is powder coated gets the full works treatment which consists of the tyre being completely removed and the wheel being stripped back to bare metal in our acid bath.
After the wheel is stripped back we then repair any damage including cracks, bends and kerb damage using different techniques and prepare the wheel for re-coating. The primer is applied in a powder form, we then spray a liquid paint on to give any required colour. Diamond cut wheels are then put into the lathe for diamond cutting before finishing off with a powder coated lacquer. Once complete the tyre is refitted and balanced before getting a final once over in quality control where any imperfections are polished out. We then fit you wheels back to your car ready to go.
