Powder Coating

Smooth as Glass in North Shields offers powder coating as part of our alloy wheel refurbishment services.

Powder coating an alloy wheel is like giving it a respray and even a complete colour change is possible. It gives a durable and protective finish to any alloy wheel, helping to resist common damage such as kerb scuffs or scratches, and corrosion.

The process involves applying a dry powder, usually made of finely ground pigment and resin particles, to the wheel’s surface and then baking it in a specialist oven to create a smooth, hard-wearing finish.

Here is the powder coating process at a glance:

  • Preparation – Thoroughly cleaning to remove all dirt and grease. The powder coating will not adhere properly to wheels that haven’t been cleaned properly
  • Stripping (if necessary) – Any existing paint or coating will need to be removed
  • Masking – Any areas that don’t need coating must be masked off
  • Application – The powder coating is electrostatically applied
  • Curing – The wheel(s) are put into a specialist oven. The powder melts and then cures at a specific temperature
  • Cooling – The wheels are allowed to cool properly and are then ready to go back on the vehicle.

Powder-coating alloy wheels is a skill that takes a long time to hone. Our powder coating technicians are experienced with all the expertise and equipment required to return your alloy wheels to a showroom finish.

Smooth as Glass in North Shields only uses the highest quality products, tools, and equipment, from PPG Paints to our Dalby downdraft booth. We never compromise or cut corners at any stage of the repair process so you’re guaranteed stunning results, every time.
