POWDER COAT / REFINISHING WHEELS / RIMS IN TORONTO, VAUGHAN
What’s powder coating wheels?
Powder coating is a type of coating that is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder. The main difference between a conventional liquid paint and a powder coating is that the powder coating does not require a solvent to keep the binder and filler parts in a liquid suspension form. The coating is typically applied electrostatically and is then cured under heat to allow it to flow and form a “skin”. The powder may be a thermoplastic or a thermoset polymer. It is usually used to create a hard finish that is tougher than conventional paint.

Cars are valuable commodities that require regular maintenance. For some, this may be considered a hassle, while for others it may be a ritualistic process. One part of the car that sometimes tends to be neglected in maintenance is the wheels. Oddly enough, the wheels are what gets beat up the most in a car and should get the most protection. Fortunately, with the aid of technology, there’s a way to protect your wheels from the daily damage, and that can be achieved by powder coating.
Powder coating is simply a type of coating that utilizes the application of dry powder to create what is essentially a skin on the rims of a wheel. There are two main types of powder coatings: thermoplastics and thermosets. Thermosetting is considered to be the stronger formula out of the two, since it involves an extra step in the polymerization process to improve its qualities.
The process of powder coating is much more elaborate than just having a regular paint job. Before powder coating can begin, the polymer to be used has to be produced. The first step is to combine the polymer granules with other powdered ingredients such as pigments and hardeners. This is done with the use of an industrial mixture. The resulting mixture is then heated in an extruder, a machine that melts and forms raw materials into a continuous form. The resulting extruded material is then flattened, cooled down, broken into smaller pieces, milled, and sieved. The end product is a fine, pulverized form of the original polymer mixture.
The actual powder coating process begins with the preparation of the wheels. This includes removing any impurities such as dirt, oils, and minerals, and it can be done chemically with a solution. An optional process that might be preferred by some professionals is sandblasting. This can be done as a follow up to the pre-treatment process or as the primary treatment itself. The powder application is the next step, and this is typically done electrostatically using an electrostatic gun. The gun is used to spray the prepared polymer mixture onto the rims. The coated rims are then heated to melt the powder, which forms a film that homogeneously covers the entire material. As it cools down, the powder coating creates a hard shell that can never be achieved with a traditional paint job.
While protection may be the most obvious benefit of it, powder coating in Toronto has other advantages over the usual liquid coating. Regular paint contains solvents that help it bind to a product. These solvents are generally harmful for the environment and are more costly to utilize. Powder coating eliminates this issue since it uses virtually no solvents whatsoever. Also, liquid sagging or running issues will never occur with powder coating, which also produces a thicker coating to begin with. Stylistically, more specialty effects can be achieved with powder coating than with liquid or any other coating process. If ever your wheels get damaged, powder coating will be the best process to refinish the wheels in order to give them back their original finish, only with a more fortified composition. Damaged wheels can also be completely restored and refinished in a different style using powder coating. There’s truly no limit as to how much you can be creative with the use of powder coating.
Powder coating is the future of styling and protecting wheels, and this future is available now. It’ll save you tons of money in the future and even save the environment from harmful pollutants. It’s what your wheels deserve and what you deserve in any kind of car you might have.
