This process involves complete alloy wheel respraying, so it’s suitable when you have damage to the paintwork, or the overall condition of your alloys has deteriorated so that it is not suitable for a simple repair.
If there is significant alloy wheel corrosion or paint damage, acid dipping can be required to remove all the paint and corrosion before the powder coating process begins. Powdered paint is electrostatically charged to ensure durability, then is cured in an oven to solidify the coating and prevent corrosion in future. Lacquer is applied to provide a sleek finish and protect from general wear and tear such as UV rays and moisture.
You may opt for powder coating as a way to give your alloy wheels a completely new colour and restore their appearance, without replacing them altogether. If you are looking for alloy wheel restoration that provides a finish better than the factory, this is the treatment for you.
Diamond cut alloy wheel
refurbishment in Tunbridge Wells
Diamond cutting is a technique requiring specialist equipment and technology to give your wheel a shiny, eye-catching finish. It can provide effective alloy wheel scuff repairs, removing any marks from the face of the wheel by cutting away a thin layer from the surface.
Significant preparation is required before the diamond cutting process can begin. Firstly, a deep cleaning takes place, where dirt, grit, and layers of lacquer and paint are removed. The wheels are then placed on a lathe to be cut, so that a layer of the metal can be removed. This can rectify any light alloy wheel damage such as scuffs or corrosion as well as providing a shine that gives a premium finish to your vehicle.
Diamond cutting may be the right choice if you want to restore minor damage to your alloy wheels without replacing or repainting them. However, it is important to bear in mind that diamond cutting can only be carried out a limited number of times before the structure of your alloy may be at risk. At this point powder coating is the only option.
