A car’s appearance can be greatly influenced by the appearance of its wheels. You can refinish your rims at a much lower price than replacing your wheels by using our powder coating services in Tulsa, OK.
Powder coating involves ground particles made up of pigment and resin is electrostatically charged and sprayed onto metal surfaces, such as your rims. These particles are attracted to the metal through the electrostatic charge. Lastly, these particles are baked together and cured, which allows them to blend together. End result is a durable, high-quality surface finish that looks fantastic. Here are five reasons why we think powder coating rims is the best way to protect them:
Wheels experience a lot of wear and tear. As a result of exposure to the elements, corrosion, chipping, and flaking can occur, not to mention the damage caused by curb rash and road debris such as stones and gravel. This ensures that your powder-coated rims will be able to withstand even the most challenging road conditions because powder coating creates a non-porous surface shield that is more resistant than traditional liquid paints.
After the powder coating particles are sprayed onto your wheels or rims, they are baked at extremely high temperatures in an oven. Powder coatings are cured during this baking process, which not only causes the particles to fuse together but actually causes them to fuse. This results in a thicker, more durable coating. Powder coating lasts three times longer than traditional painting under the same conditions.
It’s Environmentally Friendly
It is more environmentally friendly to use powder coatings over liquid paints. Volatile organic compounds found in liquid paint pose a threat to the ozone as well as to anyone who breathes them in. Additionally, excess liquid paint is nearly impossible to capture and repurpose. Powder coating, on the other hand, doesn’t emit dangerous VOCs and you can recycle any excess powder. So, if you’re getting your wheels redone, why not do something that’s better for the environment while you’re at it?
Better Wheel Coverage
Depending on the wheel rim design, certain parts of the rim may be difficult to reach with liquid paint on some rims. As opposed to liquid paint, powder coatings offer better coverage. In contrast, powder coatings, when combined with the electrostatic method and the curing process, provide adequate coverage even at the most difficult-to-reach parts of the rim.
Easier On Your Wallet
Powder coating will end up saving you a considerable amount of money in the long run. It may seem that more traditional painting methods are slightly less expensive upfront, but when you consider how durable and long-lasting powder coating is, powder coating is going to be a better investment.
