Powder Coating Technology
Rim powder coating is a process where a uniform and extremely durable paint-like coating is applied to an aluminum or steel rim. The process involves spraying finely ground, electrostatically charged powder particles of pigment and resin mixture onto a rim surface to be coated. The positively charged powder particles adhere to the electrically negative surface of the rim. The coated rim is then placed into a curing oven at a specific temperature and for a specific length of time. Powder coating technology is a great alternative to liquid finishing technologies. Powder coated finish is durable, uniform and cost effective.
