Top 3 Alloy Wheel Repairing and Refurbishment Processesby Herts Wheels Specialists in Alloy Wheel Refurbishment
Alloy wheel repairing or refurbishing processes to remove UV ray damages, moisture, corrosion, fading, abrasion from alloy wheels. They are easy to use.
Alloy wheel repairing or refurbishing is very essential to remove several wheel damages such as corrosion, cracks, chips, scuffs, scratches, scrapes, kerb damages, buckles, UV ray damages etc. Mostly, three major processes are used to repair car alloy wheels. They are wheel straightening, powder coating and diamond cutting process.
A bent alloy wheel can be easily repaired by the professionals. Alloy wheel straightening is a very simple process. Firstly, they drop off the wheel in a machine shop. After that, the wheel is heated at a very high temperature to make it softer. After that, they use an advanced hydraulic press to remove all bends on its rim.
After that, alloy wheel specialists join additional metals with the help of welding process. After welding, they can also use lathe machine to eliminate excess materials. Generally, it is a final straightening step. Once they have done, polish the wheel and apply a fine coat to get a smooth finish.
Powder Coating Process
Powder coating is one of the most popular alloy wheel repair processes. This process is generally used to change the colour of an alloy wheel. In this process, dry powder is applied directly to the wheel. It has several advantages. Powder coating always gives a protection against light damages, UV ray damages, pollution, moisture, chemicals, corrosion, fading, chipping, abrasion etc. Apart from that, it is highly cost effective and eco friendly as well.
The process of powder coating is very simple. At first, experts remove the wheel from the car and then clean it manually by using advanced wheel cleaner. After that, they eliminate tougher particles from it with the help of sandblasting. When the sandblasting is done, they heat the wheel rim at a very high temperature in a special oven and then spray the powder to the alloy wheel by using a spray gun.
Diamond Cutting Process
Diamond cutting is another popular all wheel refurbishment process. It can also give the most effective result. This process is generally used to remove the thin and fine layers from the alloy rim. Nowadays it has become very popular because it always gives long lasting finish.
The diamond cutting process is similar to the powder coating. Firstly, the wheel is removed from the car and the cleaned it manually. After that, it is placed into a spacial lathe machine and removed the thin alloy layers by using diamond tip tool. An excellent finish can be easily produced by using this process.
Wheel straightening, powder coating and diamond cutting are extremely beneficial. They can bring back the wheel’s life. These 3 processes are extremely cost effective, eco friendly and they protect protect the wheels from corrosion, fading, scratches etc.
