Wheel Creations PVD is the leading provider of PVD chrome and powder coating services in and around Los Angeles.
What is Powder Coating?
Powder coating is a type of painting that involves the application of a protective and very durable cosmetic finish to automotive wheels. The process itself doesn’t produce any harmful products or emissions like those produced in wet paint coating processes. A thinker coating can be applied on wheels, unlike when using liquid paints. Once cured, powder coating will last longer and is harder than any other conventional wheel painting process in Los Angeles.
Over the last few years, there has been an increase in the use of this process to finish automotive wheels and other metal parts. When combined with other finishing processes like PVD chroming, the thick and hard coating provides for a durable finish that will last for years to come while offering maximum protection for your wheels. The end result is attractive wheels that resist heat, rust, corrosion, scratches, and chips.
The dry paint and heat technique used in this process ensures that the coating is of the highest standard possible. If you’re looking for trusted custom wheel experts offering quality powder coating for wheels in Los Angeles, Wheel Creations PVD does it best. In addition to setting the highest standards in the industry, they also provide reasonable turnaround times.
Why Choose Powder Coating?
With so many wheel finishes to choose from, it’s easy to get confused when you want to customize your wheels. From powder coating to PVD chrome finishing and sandblasting to chrome plating, you need to choose a wheel finish process that you can trust to provide quality and lasting results. There’s a reason why so many vehicle owners choose powder coating as their wheel finish of choice. Here are some of the benefits:
When it comes to customizing automotive wheels, you want to be sure that the look you’re going for is exactly what you want. The best thing about powder coating is that every step of the process is fully customizable, giving you the freedom to express your vehicle’s unique sense of style. You can choose a coating color or finish that matches your car’s body color, ride style, or go for an entirely new finish. The possibilities for customizing your wheels are endless.
Many automotive enthusiasts choose powder coating over traditional painting, especially for their wheels because it outperforms any traditional liquid paint job. Powder coating can maintain its custom finish for up to 15-20 years, depending on the type of pre-treatment done on the wheels and the type of powder used. It’s also corrosion, weather, and chemical resistant than liquid paint coatings.
Unique Wheel Finishes
There is a variety of colors to choose from, and experts at your custom wheel service can also help with color matching for the perfect finish. Some of the color options available with powder coating include matte black, gloss gunmetal, brushed electron blue, full brushed, matte gunmetal, antique bronze, and other specialized colors like gold, velvet red, and Tiffany blue. Styles include metallic, textured, smooth, hammer-tone, illusion, and translucent.
Caring for Powder Coated Wheels
Just like how a car’s paint needs proper cleaning and care, powder coated wheels also need to be properly cleaned and protected from wear and tear. Powder coating your wheels in Los Angeles will make your wheels look great but dirt and grime will be more apparent. To extend the life of your wheels and powder coating, it's recommended that you regularly clean and wash your wheels with the least aggressive method you can use.
For general cleaning of wheels, use mild soap and water that is phosphate-free. For a deeper wheel clean to get rid of dirt and grime, use a simple orange or green based cleaner that has been diluted according to the instructions provided. To ensure your wheels are well protected every day, use WD-40 or other emollient to prevent dirt or grime buildup in between cleanings. For a lasting finish, apply a sealant, detailing spray, or wheel wax for wheel waterproofing.
