Powder coating as a technique is a high-quality finish found on thousands of everyday products and found to be exceptionally suitable for finishing alloy wheels. It protects the roughest, toughest machinery and items and gives a more durable finish than liquid paints can offer, while still providing a decorative, attractive finish.
And when we use this technique at Transalloy Wheels you get the peace of mind of excellent quality work delivered by trained specialists with latest equipment in-house in our workshops.
Powder coating is not only decorative as a finish but it’s proven to last longer and is more durable against the rigours of our roads. Your alloys become more resistant to diminished coating quality as a result of impact, moisture, chemicals, ultraviolet light plus extreme weather conditions. The risk of scratches, chipping, abrasions, corrosion, fading, plus other wear issues is greatly reduced.
How do we carry it out?
How do we do it? We carry a vast choice of colours in stock and can order in if there is something special that we do not stock. The powder is sprayed on like traditional paint but as it lands on the alloy it settles on the surface dry rather than liquid. Then the coating is heat treated in a large oven so that the paint runs out of the coating to forma a gel over the surface of the wheel.
Benefits of Powder Coating Alloy Wheels
- Better and more durable finish
- Lasts longer that painting
- Even finish due to the spraying process so avoids drips forming
- Can be turned around quickly
- Environmentally friendly as contains few VOCs – volatile organic compounds
Add to this a couple more advantages such as the option of a matt or gloss finish on your wheels plus the fact that powder coated alloys can also be diamond cut to complete the refurbishment process. You can specify a paint/powder colour to emphasise the effect of the diamond cutting.
Powder cutting when done correctly protects the wheel and adds to its life. Don’t buy twice – trust the experts at Transalloy Wheels.
