SMART ALLOY MOBILE ALLOY WHEEL REFURBISHMENT SERVICE

The technician breaks the beading and peels back the tyre from the face of the alloy in order to get behind the rim. The technician then strips, grinds and sands the face of the alloy, the alloy is cleaned and prepped before it is etch primed (this prevents the paint peeling off).

The alloy is then primed to help prevent corrosion occurring. After primimg the alloy is colour matched and then wet sprayed in the van and then the paint is baked under IR lamps. The technician then applies a two pack lacquer with a hardener which he sprays and then bakes the lacquer under lamps in the van. It usually takes a technician 5 to 6 hours to refurbish 4 alloys.
