THE ULTIMATE EXPERIENCE IN ALLOY WHEEL REFURBISHMENT

THE PROCESS

WHEEL REFURBISHMENT

Step 1

The first stage of the alloy wheel refurbishment process is to check the wheels for flat spots, buckles or cracks. The wheels are put onto our digital wheel balancer to check for buckles and/or flat spots. On inspection, if there is a buckle, flat spot or crack present in the wheel you will receive a video detailing the imperfection. If the buckle can be safely removed and/or the crack can be welded, this is something we also do on-site at an additional cost. Both before and after videos can be provided on request.

 

When tyres are present, we will safely remove the tyres from the wheels. Tyres are individually labelled with the customer information. Tyres are inspected and if there are any issues, you will be informed at the earliest opportunity. If requested by the customer, we can label the tyre with the tyre positioning of where it was situated on the vehicle. We remove old balancing weights along with any left over adhesive residue. Valves, centre caps and any decals are also removed.

Step 2

The wheels are completely submerged in a chemical stripping tank which removes all the paint from the wheel. After the wheels are stripped of the paint they are washed to decontaminate the wheel. They are then visually inspected again to check for any cracks that may have been hard to see whilst there was paint on the wheel. Again, on inspection if there is a crack present in the wheel you will receive a video detailing the imperfection.

Step 3

All kerbing is addressed. Any kerb damage that is too deep to be machined out will require welding to rebulld the surface of the alloy; this is charged at an additional amount. We will provide a quotation at the earliest opportunity.

The wheels are then gently shot blasted in our automatic shot blaster. This removes any remaining paint/debris on the surface of the wheel whilst also cleaning the surface. Please note that we shot blast the whole wheel; not just the face. Shot blasting also keys the surface of the wheel which creates the best possible surface for the painting process. The wheels are then thoroughly washed.

Step 4

The wheels are placed on our track system ready for painting. Alike OEM manufacturers, the back pad of the wheel and the wheel lugware seatings are masked off. Failure to mask of these areas will results in torque relaxation of these fixings.

The majority of the colours we use (not all) require us to follow a ‘three coat system’ (but this is dependant on the colour you choose). Some of the colours, mainly candy metallic colours require a four coat system. Firstly the wheel (in its entirety) will be powder coated with a primer. Once primered, the wheel is placed in our oven to cure.

Step 5

Once cured, we allow the wheel to cool down to the correct temperature and then the face of the wheel is then wet sprayed the colour of your choice. Once wet sprayed, the wheel is placed back into our oven to cure the paint.

Step 6

Once the wet paint has cured, the face is then powder coat acrylic lacquered; acrylic lacquer is the best lacquer on the market and also the most durable.  Once the wheel has cured, we visually inspect the wheel to ensure it meets our high standards. We then carefully refit your tyres (dependant on which service you have chosen) and balance all four wheels. The wheels that have been painted in dark colours will be balanced with black balancing weights; the wheels which have been painted with lighter colours will be balanced with grey balancing weights.

Paint & Primer Product Used for refurbishment

Our main supplier for our wet paint and powder coat products is a German brand called Freilacke. Freilacke’s products are designed specifically for application on alloy wheels.

 

FreiLacke develop and produce all conventional coating systems under one roof. They are thus able to offer our customers not only all the important coating technologies but can also match these to the respective coating structure and finish to optimum effect. The advantages: best material properties, consistent colour results (even with varying products and coating types) and the needs-based configuration of individual coatings – and all from one source.

 

The product range covers the entire spectrum of industrial coatings, powder coatings and electrodeposition coatings all the way through to Durelastic surface solutions for composites.

alloy wheel straightening

During the process of straightening an alloy wheel, it involves heating the damaged area of the alloy – this will allow the repair to be undertaken. When the heat is applied to the wheel, it will affect the paint finish to the wheel. If you are having a wheel straightened during the refurbishment process, we always do the straightening prior to painting the wheel, but, if you are specifically having just the straightening service and NOT having the wheel refurbished, it will affect the paint finish on the wheel. Furthermore, when straightening a wheel there is a possibility that the wheel can crack; if the wheel cracks and requires a weld, this will be charged at an additional amount and will also add on an additional working day for completion.

wheel welding

In the event that you have a crack located in the rear lip of the wheel, our professional recommendation is for you to obtain a replacement wheel. The crack can however be professionally welded; we believe this is the only type of crack that is safe to weld. We will not weld a crack anywhere on the face of a wheel, as this will compromise on the structural safety and integrity of the wheel. If necessary, The process is as follows. We would weld a small hole of approximately 4mm where the crack ends. The surrounding area is then thoroughly linished to remove existing paint and corrosion to create a clean surface for the weld to adhere to. A channel is created down middle of crack allowing the weld to flow into; this results in maximum strength, adhesion and stability. The weld is ground down on the outer lip to ensure the tyre seals onto the wheel and finally, a coat of primer is applied.
