Precision Powder Coating Services

At KLS Motors, our alloy powder coating in Lancaster involves preparing your wheels by stripping old finishes and thoroughly cleaning the surfaces. We then apply a finely ground resin powder, which is electrostatically charged to adhere to the metal.

The wheels are cured in a high-temperature oven, creating a hard, durable coating that is resistant to weather, chemicals, and physical abrasions. This process not only revitalises the look of your wheels but also provides a long-lasting barrier against environmental elements.

2: Cleaning

Wheels are thoroughly cleaned to remove all dirt, grease, and existing finishes, ensuring a pristine surface for coating.

Stubborn old paint and finishes are stripped using chemical agents, preparing the wheels for a flawless new coating.

5: Outgassing

Wheels are heated to release trapped gases from the metal, which prevents bubbles and imperfections in the final finish.

Common Questions We Get Asked

Dive into our FAQs to learn more about the benefits and specifics of alloy powder coating. Get all your questions answered and discover why this service is right for you.

What is powder coating for alloy wheels?

Powder coating is a dry finishing process where a powder material is electrostatically applied to the surface of alloy wheels and then cured under heat to form a hard, protective layer. This layer is durable, and resistant to corrosion, chemicals and impact.

How long does powder coating last on alloy wheels?

When properly maintained, powder coating on alloy wheels can last anywhere from several years to the lifetime of the wheels. Its longevity depends on factors like the quality of the application, the type of powder used, and exposure to harsh conditions.

Is powder coating better than painting for alloy wheels?

Yes, powder coating is generally considered superior to painting for alloy wheels because it provides a more durable and longer-lasting finish. It is more resistant to chips, scratches, and fading compared to standard paint.

Can powder coating be repaired if it gets damaged?

Yes, powder coating can be touched up or repaired if it is chipped or scratched. The repair process may involve sanding the affected area and reapplying powder, which should ideally be done by professionals like those at KLS Motors to ensure a seamless finish.

Are there different finishes available with powder coating?

Powder coating comes in a variety of finishes including matte, satin, gloss, and textured effects. At KLS Motors, you can choose from a wide range of colours and finishes to customise the look of your alloy wheels according to your preferences.
