CASE STUDY: HYDRO-DIPPED AUDI 20 INCH ALLOY WHEELS

A local customer who has had some VW T5 parts Hydro-Dipped by us made an enquiry to have his 20 Inch Audi alloy wheels refurbished.

They were badly curbed and damaged and the decision was made to get the wheels shot blasted and powder coated locally as this was more cost effective than for us to hand refurbish them. The company the client used also tried to dip them in the black and silver carbon pattern he had selected but unfortunately they failed to get the job right.

The client then contacted us again and brought the wheels to us so we could look at finishing the job!

The wheels were in need of preparation ready for us to apply a suitable black base coat before dipping. The wheels were very heavy and awkward to dip by hand but we managed to get all 4 wheels dipped effectively and they were then coated with a chameleon purple/green gloss lacquer.

This lacquer makes the wheels sparkle and change colour - they look amazing in the sunlight. The client was suitably amazed when he came to see them, after all the issues he had experienced it was lovely for us to see his reaction.
