LEOMINSTER POWDERCOAT

Alloy Wheel Refurbishment

At Leominster Powdercoat, we specialise in alloy wheel refurbishment, bringing old and tired wheels back to a show grade finish. Powdercoating comes into it's own league here, providing an immaculate finish equal to that of wet spray but also maintaing hardness and durability over years to come, something which wet sprayed wheels lack. The secret to the awesome finish and durability is thanks to the powdercoating process. Firstly, the wheel is stripped back to the metal using acid, removing all layers of previous paint jobs without damaging the wheel. The wheel is then steam cleaned and dried. Next, the wheel is sand blasted and sanded by hand afterwards to provide a key for the powder to "sit in". The Wheel is then pre-heated in an oven to high temperature and  sprayed with a primer coat of powder. The wheel goes back into the oven and is brought out after a period of time to be sprayed with the desired colour and then its back into the oven to be cured. Lastly the wheel must be sprayed one more time with a powdercoated lacquer. This is the icing on the cake, it gives the wheel a brilliant shine and also hardens the finish.
