That happens to be the brand of powder my guy uses.

They offer a great selection of colors -- far more than I was led to believe was possible through powdercoat.

Yes, my job is exciting and glamours...I get to look up powdercoating on occasion.

http://www.tigerdrylac.com/

I'll be disappointed if Tigre gets his powdercoating done anywhere else. And yes, you have to look at the Flash intro to get the full effect. [laugh]
so, if i need to get powder coating OFF of wheels, do you have any recommendations for folks that do this sort of thing?

long story short - i took the wheels to a stripping service that dipped them into vats of some sort of alkali mixture (both cold, and hot), and it only took some of the powder coating off, so the wheels now look like they have terminal acne. i just want to have all the powder coating removed, so they can either be polished, or re powder coated. HELP.

grazie,
johnc

Depending on the alloy, beadblasting may be too harsh...

Sorry tat the chemical stripping didn't work, John.

hrmmmm....never thought of that. Sandblasting? Or is that even worse? I know when we have something that needs to be cleaned, we just say "beadblast" and it gets taken care of. We generally do that with wrought iron and steel--aluminum maybe? What other alloys are you referring to?

I don't believe magnesium can take blasting.

John,

Try contacting Terrapete on the DML (2nd place finisher at the DMC National Finals). He's a powdercoater and may have some ideas, too.

A guy I used to work with used a product called Aircraft Paint Stripper, and it would take powdercoat off.
It wouldn't just slide off like paint, but it did a pretty good job.

ciao -

tried aircraft stripper ... no effect at all ... did not even blister the paint.

whatever was used for powder coating on these wheels is stout stuff.
