ALLOYTECHREFURBEDRIMS REFURBISHMENT PROCEDURE
PLEASE DO NOT CONFUSE US WITH A WET SPRAY MOST DO THIS JUST ON THE FACE OF THE WHEEL AND DO NOT EVEN TAKE THE TYRE OFF BUT JUST MASK THE TYRE THEN SPRAY THE FACE OF THE WHEEL PEOPLE ARE CALLING THIS A REFURBISHMENT AND IT IS A REFURBISHMENT OF SORTS BUT NOT A FULL PROFESSIONAL REFURBISHMENT AND IT WILL NOT LAST.
MOST MANUFACTURERS OF NEW WHEELS USE SOME FORM OF POWDER COATING ON THERE WHEELS THIS IS WHY THEY LAST SO LONG BEFORE HAVING TO BE RE DONE THIS IS A FACT,, THERE ARE A FEW HIGH END MANUFACTURERS THAT WET SPRAY THERE WHEELS AND WE USUALLY SEE THESE WHEELS A LOT SOONER AND USUALLY ROTTING .
HERE AT ALLOYTECHREFURBEDRIMS WE STAND BY THE QUALITY OF OUR REFURBISHMENT AND OUR PROCEDURE INVOLVES,, TYRES/WEIGHTS/VALVES/CENTRE CAPS TAKEN OFF WHEELS THEN WHEELS GO THROUGH A FULL STRIP DOWN TO BARE METAL AND THIS IS ALL OF THE WHEEL/S OR COMPONENTS THEN THEY GO THROUGH A FULL PREPERATION AND ANY KERBING TAKEN OUT WE DO NOT USE FILLERS AS WE WORK WITH VERY HIGH HEAT BUT INSTEAD WHEN NEEDED WE TIG WELD ALLUMINIUM BACK INTO THE WHEEL AND RE SHAPE IT AS IT SHOULD BE, THEN THE WHEELS/COMPONENTS ARE DETAIL BLASTED TO GET ANY ROT OR IMPERFECTIONS OUT OF THE WHEELS THEY ARE CHECKED AGAIN CLEANED DOWN AGAIN AND ONLY WHEN HAPPY WITH THE WHEELS ,,,THEY ARE THEN READY TO RE POWDER COATED WHICH DEPENDING ON COLOURS ARE A,, 1, 2, OR 3 STAGE POWDER COATING PROCESS IN OVENS JUST LIKE THE WHEEL MANUFACTURERS DO.
AFTER THE WHEELS ARE REFURBISHED AS A FREE SERVICE WE OFFER RE FITTING OF TYRES AND VALVES THEN RE BALANCING OF WHEELS THIS IS A FREE SERVICE AND DOES NOT CHANGE THE PRICES IF NO TYRES ARE TO BE RE FITTED. SO AS YOU CAN SEE BY THE AMOUNT OF PREPERATION WE PUT THE WHEELS THROUGH YOU DO GET A QUALITY SERVICE PLUS NOT TO MENTION A POWDER COATING FINISH THAT IS A LOT MORE DURABLE THAN ANY WET SPRAY AND THE SAME COATING AS YOUR WHEELS WOULD HAVE HAD ON FROM THE MANUFACTURERS.
please note our refurbishment only covers the wheel cosmetically! ,,so centre caps are a seperate job at extra cost most are plastic so need to be wet sprayed or now most can be replaced cheaply. also wheel straightening is a extra job at extra cost as is a structual matter all this we can carry out and can be seen on price page.
TURN AROUND TIME ON YOUR WHEELS
AS THIS IS A PROFESSIONAL SERVICE AND THE AMOUNT OF WORK THAT IS INVOLVED IN REFURBISHING YOUR WHEELS TURN AROUND TIME IS 2 WORKING DAYS AND IN SOME CASES WHEN WHEELS ARE VERY BAD OR WHEN WE ARE REFURBISHING SPLIT RIMS THE WHEELS MAY TAKE 3 WORKING DAYS
we do NOT shot blast your alloy wheels with very course aggregate like some companies this can ruin the wheels beyond repair and we advise against it we do see this a lot with customers who have had there wheels shot blasted with heavy media and have ruined there wheels they are then scrap this is usually done by shot blast company that shot blasts steel and brick so use same aggregate for wheels which you cannot do,,, a professional wheel refurbishing company will not do this there is all sorts of aggregate for all different types of metals alluminium is a soft metal so a fine aggregate should be used to take coating off and not to heavily pit the alloy , steel wheels are fine to fully shot blast with heavy aggregate but not alluminum wheels.
