Utah Experts’ Powder Coating for Aluminum Rims Process
See below for 5 steps to Powder Coating you should know before refinishing your wheels.
Step 1 Drop off your car. Our experienced team will get started right away. Quality Powder Coating has teamed up with an established automotive shop to handle all Wheel Dismount, Remount and Balance. You won’t have to worry about amateurs working on your car.
Step 2 The original wheels are dismounted, valve stem and weights are removed to prepare for sandblasting. The following stages must be followed to ensure lasting results. Reported problems with powder coating aluminum rims are a direct result of improper blasting or short-cutting the process. Be sure to confirm your Wheels are sandblasted to a Specification SSPC 5/NACE clean “white Metal” finish.
Step 3 The original wheels are sandblasted to a clean “White Metal” finish. This ensures a maximum powder bond. All impurities are removed before the powder is applied. This process also profiles the surface to provide for better adhesion. If your wheels aren’t sandblasted thoroughly the finish will be prone to flake or peel.
Step 4 The sandblasted wheels are statically charged and a small molecule epoxy primer is applied. After the primer is applied the wheels are heated to 400 degrees. The Primer offers a tighter mechanical bond between the top coat and the metal.
Step 5 Powdered wheels are heated to 400 degrees. After critical temperature is maintained the wheels are removed and returned to room temperature. The cooling process will harden the coating to a durable glossy finish. The powder coated wheels are returned to the body shop and mounted. Lugs are hand torqued for a final touch. Every wheel is finally inspected to confirm a perfect finish. 24hrs Later your vehicle is ready for pickup. Quality Powder Coating will warranty your new wheels against rust or corrosion for 1 year.
