Metallic Powder Coating for Aluminum Wheels
Published May 19, 2004 by Society of Automotive Engineers of Japan in Japan

Aluminum wheel coating has three key issues. Those are progress of product value like appearance and anticorrosion, environmental issue like reduction of the amount of solvent and cost reduction. We have considered metallic powder coating for aluminum wheel is the best technology to satisfy these issues. Therefore we have developed metallic powder coating by optimizing the surface treatment of aluminum pigment and the melting viscosity of resin on order to orient aluminum pigment regularly.
