Alloy Wheel Acid Stripping Refurbishment Service

When we work on alloy wheels that are heavilly corroded or have flaky paint, powder coatings, or a previous diamond cut finish, we always acid strip them.

We place them into an alloy wheel acid bath to strip and remove all of these contaminants that would ruin the finish, without damaging or scouring the alloy rim itself.

This is the specialised chemical process we call alloy wheel acid stripping.

Time To Rinse Off Excess Acid

Now the acid stripping process has worked it's magic and all contaminants have been removed from your alloy wheel, it's time to rinse the acid off completely, making certain there is no trace left to potentially ruin your planned finish. Just beautiful bare allumnium!

The Acid Works Into The Paint work

As you can see the acid actually works into the paint and lifts it from the alloy wheel, leaving no scratches from sanding or brushing. This is perfect if you are planning on having a delicate finish, for example a wax polished or diamond cut.

If you are planning on painting or powder coating, it's also an easy way to give you a perfect finish with less sanding and manual Preparation.
