A small part of the wheel is machined off to create this finish. It is then lacquered over to prevent corrosion. You will be able to see if your wheel is diamond cut if on close inspection you see very fine lines created by the cutting machine and the appearance is very shiny.
Not all wheels can be diamond cut as this depends on the profile of the face of the wheel If the diamond cut finish is not suitable, other wheel finishes are available.
When looking for the best alloy wheel refurbishment process for your wheels Powder Coating and wet spray combination is the refurbishment of the whole wheel – this process is used for total colour changes or to return the wheel to its original finish when the damage is too severe or the damage covers many areas of the wheel for a cosmetic repair to be sufficient. Powder coating is a type of coating that is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder.
Our sand-blasting facilities include a 20 ft designated shot blast room which we can blast car shells, chassis, auto grass frames, gates railings and large items. We blast with fine glass which gives a nice etch for powder coating. We also have a Vixen Sand Blasting cabinet which is for smaller parts up to 1m, in this we use aluminium oxide media.
Acid stripping is a big part of our preparation to remove old coatings paint, powder coating etc. The reason why this is so important is once the old coatings are removed and steam cleaned we only have to sandblast gently to remove corrosion in alloy wheels or the rust in metal thus meaning a smooth profile with a good etch, which is perfect for paint or powder coating.
Vapour blasting is a process using glass bead media suspended in water, and is propelled at high velocity through a gun towards the part, it is more of a cleaning process to aluminium, stainless steel, brass, copper, bronze. The end results are amazing it is a very gentle process it brings the mentioned metals up like new!
