In some extreme cases, wheels that are prone to rotting and corrosion need to undergo special treatment. In such cases some companies out there will ‘shot blast’ or ‘sand blast’ badly rotting or corroded wheels to remove all the paint and blemishes. We find this to be a harsh process that can leave pitting and other imperfections in the repaired wheel.

So instead we use the latest techniques, which involve us removing all the paint and corrosion in an acid bath and then powder coating the wheel to achieve a more satisfactory repair. Due to the strength of the acid used we cannot undertake it from one of our mobile units, so the work is carried out at our depot instead.

Actually, there are also some upsides to having wheels in such bad condition that they require acid stripping and powder coating – you can have them re-painted to the original colour or, if you fancy a change, we can mix up any colour you like. Here is the place to let you know that once the acid stripping is completed, your alloy wheel will look like they’ve just rolled out of the factory they were made in – you might want to make sure you wash the rest of your car so it doesn’t look out of place.

Out latest procedure and technique includes removing of all the paint and corrosion in an acid bath. Stripping paint from metal pieces and cleaning them inside and out is what we do.
