Alloy Wheel Powder Coating in Chelsea, Knightsbridge, Battersea and Mayfair
Here is an insight into the powder coating process we carry out in our refurbishment centre. We use the latest state of the art machinery, all located on site, ensuring we can offer not only a quality service but an express turnaround too.
Preparation The alloys will be placed in a media blaster to remove the old powder coated surface until the alloy is exposed. This will ensure that no contamination will affect the new powder coating and also provides good adhesion. As you know, powder coating is an extremely durable surface.
Oven Baked The alloys will then be heated in a specialised powder coating oven for 20-30 minutes at a temperature in excess of 180oC.
Powder Coating While still hot, the alloys will be transported to our powder coating facility whereby the powder coating of your choice will be “dusted” on to the alloy. In most cases, the entire alloy will be “dusted” with a powder coat. The heat retained by the alloys will begin the curing process.
Oven Baked Again The alloys will then be heated in a specialised powder coating oven for a further 30-40 minutes at a temperature in excess of 180oC whereby the powder coat will melt and form a beautiful finish to the alloys.
Cooling Period The alloys will be taken out to cool down
DIAMOND CUT AND POWDER COATING COMBINATION
On some manufacturers' designs, we have come across a combination of diamond cut/polish with a background in powder coat.
The procedure is the same as above, except we will powder coat it first followed by diamond cutting before lacquering to finish off!
