Powder coating is an advanced method of applying a decorative finish to metal surfaces by spraying finely ground particles of paint and resin that are electrostatically charged and get attracted to the negatively charged metal part to be covered. When the part is heated at the powder’s melting point, it begins to flow and bond with the metal. After curing in the oven, the part is taken out and left to air dry. This leaves a uniform, durable and attractive finish.
None of our processes are automated, meaning every wheel is touched, inspected and treated like a project on its own.
We don’t do mass production. We are closer to artisans than technicians. There is a lot of labour involved in the services we offer, and the end results speak for themselves.
It is impossible for any mass production shop to equal the quality of the products that go out our doors.
Body filler is the quick way to fix dents, scratches and gauges, that’s what the body shops use. YES even on wheels. Body filler is a polymer based paste, and doesn’t completely bond with the substrate, making it prone to cracking and shrinking.
Whether the wheels need cosmetic repairs or not, they all go on our lathe where they get turned by hand and inspected with a high precision dial gage for straightness and planage.
If there are bends we can fix them.
Our shop is state of the art! Of course we have a huge CNC to refinish modern diamond-cut wheels. Most high end cars today come standard with these types of wheels that have their faces machined to show bare metal in certain areas, and paint in others. If your car has these kind of wheels and you want to refinish or repair them, we have the solution.
Whenever possible, we source our tools and supplies locally to contribute to our economy. We use recycled glass that’s made in Quebec in our media blaster; we buy most of our powders from Ontario, and use equipment and chemicals from local Montreal company Greensolv in our wheel stripping tank.
From the environmentally-friendly chemicals that get heated in our stripping tank to remove paint from wheels, to us refusing to follow the crowd in using highly toxic solvent based paints, we are your solution for responsible refinishing of wheels. You can be proud to advertise using our services, knowing we are just as concerned about the planet as you are.
