Wheel Perfection polished alloy wheel repair service
Diamond cutting involves removing a thin layer of alloy from the alloy wheel using our specialist lathing equipment.
Diamond cut wheels can only be refurbished a few times as too much alloy would eventually be removed. You may wish to consider our powder coat refurbishment as a durable and long lasting refurbishment method to increase the life of your alloy.
To identify if your wheels are diamond cut, is if the faces of the wheels are very shiny effect.
They also have painted inserts; these can be any colour, silver, black, how we diamond cut your alloy wheels is as follows:
- The alloy wheels are placed in our acid bath until all the paint is removed.
- We then jet wash the wheels to remove all the loose paint and acid.
- Any damage is then removed using a number of methods.
- The wheels are then placed in our centre based oven and heated up.
- We then prime the wheels and bake them again.
- The primer is then ‘flatted off’ to ensure a smooth paint finish.
- The wheels are heated up again and painted in your chosen colour and baked off again.
- The colour you choose alloy will be visible on the insets of the wheels.
- The spokes and edges are then ‘scored’ before being turned on the lathe.
- Any sharp edges removed.
- They are then heated up and lacquered to protect the polished metal alloy.
- The wheels are left to cool before they have the tyres refitted.
- We also balance the wheels before fitting them back to your vehicle.
