What is powder coating?
Powder coating is a dry finishing process where fine particles of pigment and resin are electrostatically charged and sprayed onto a surface. The charged particles adhere to the surface and are then cured under heat to form a hard, durable finish.
What are the advantages of powder coating over traditional liquid coatings?
Powder coating offers several advantages, including durability, resistance to chipping, fading, and scratching, environmental friendliness (low VOC emissions), uniform coverage, and a wide range of color and texture options.
How long does powder coating last?
The lifespan of powder coating can vary depending on factors such as the application, environment, and maintenance. However, properly applied powder coating can last for many years without significant degradation.
Why choose powder coating for rims/wheels?
Powder coating enhances the aesthetic appeal of rims/wheels with customizable colors and finishes while significantly improving durability and longevity. It provides a tough, chip-resistant surface that withstands road debris, chemicals, and harsh weather, ensuring vibrant rims for years to come.
How does powder coating compare to other coating methods for rims/wheels?
Powder coating offers superior durability and resistance to chipping, fading, and scratching compared to traditional liquid coatings. It provides a uniform and long-lasting finish that maintains its vibrant appearance over time.
What is sandblasting?
Sandblasting, also known as abrasive blasting, is a process used to clean, smooth, or shape surfaces using a stream of abrasive material propelled at high speed. This abrasive material, which can include sand, steel grit, glass beads, or walnut shells, is directed under high pressure to remove surface contaminants, paint, rust, or other coatings from various surfaces.
How does sandblasting prepare surfaces for treatments like painting or powder coating?
Sandblasting effectively removes surface contaminants, rust, old paint, or coatings from surfaces, creating a clean and roughened surface ideal for paint adhesion or powder coating application. It ensures better adhesion and longevity of the coating.
What are the advantages of sandblasting?
Sandblasting is efficient and effective in removing tough surface contaminants, rust, or coatings from surfaces. It provides thorough surface preparation for various treatments, enhances adhesion, and can create desired textures or finishes. Sandblasting is widely used across industries for its versatility and reliability.
