Chrome powder coating wheels

Past Work on February 7th, 2012 17 Comments

We have have had a number of people asking what our chrome powder coat looks like, does it look like chrome plate, does it look like polished metal, is it just like a steel grey like other companies offer.   So we thought we would explain and display our chrome powder coat finish for every one to see, in an FAQ format.

Is the chrome powder coat the same finish as chrome plating?

The finish of the chrome powdercoat is not the same as chrome plating, it doesnt have the same shine once lacquered.

Is the chrome powder coat as shiney as mirror polished?

The finish is just slighlty off mirror polished, it is as bright as mirror polished, but just not as reflective.

How durable is the chrome powder coat?

It is as durable as any other colour powder coat, so can be cleaned in exactly the same way.

Can you chrome powder coat any wheel?

We can chrome powder coat any wheel, or any item of metal.

I have a show car and want a chrome plated finish, could you mimic this with chrome powder coat?

If you are after a full on chrome plate look, we can achieve this by chrome powder coating the wheel and leaving it un lacquered.

However, as it is not lacquered, its not been bonded, so there is no guarantee on how long it may last, it could be hours, weeks, or years.

If the wheels you have are just show wheels and its just the centres on split rims etc you wanted done in this finish, then they could last quite some time. We have done a few Bbs wheels in this way.

Please see pictures below of chrome powder coat examples.

All the pictures shows our chrome powder coat with lacquer, how ever the BBS centre rings show what the chrome powder coat finish is like, with out the lacquer. Vert similar to chrome plating.   Please double click on the images to enlarge them.
