When looking for the best alloy wheel refurbishment process for your wheels you need consider that alloy wheel refurbishment is used to cover a varied number of processes. These include:
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. It involves a refurbishment of the whole wheel and can only be achieved with specialist ovens and equipment to remove old coatings, repair damage and corrosion and re apply a completely new finish. It gives an exceptional finish and is extremely durable.
Then there is refurbishment of a diamond cut wheel which is the same as the powder coated wheel refurbishment described above but with the addition of the diamond cut lathe which removes a micro section of the metal to give the classic diamond cut wheel finish.
The last alloy wheel refurbishment process is the cosmetic or SMART repair which is a localised repair to a small area of damage to the wheel finish. The repair is colour matched into the existing finish.
