Diamond Cutting – Refurbishment Tips

Alloy wheels are a popular choice for many car enthusiasts due to their aesthetic appeal and performance benefits. Over time, however, they can become scratched, scuffed, or worn out. Diamond cutting is a process that can restore the original shine and finish of your alloy wheels, making them look brand new again.

What is Diamond Cutting?

Diamond cutting is a refurbishment technique that involves precision machining of the wheel's surface using a diamond-tipped lathe. This process removes a thin layer of metal, eliminating imperfections and creating a smooth and polished surface. The result is a stunning, reflective finish that enhances the overall appearance of the alloy wheels.

The Diamond Cutting Process

The diamond cutting process typically involves three main steps: inspection and preparation, machining, and clear coating.

  1. Inspection and Preparation: Before starting the process, the wheels are thoroughly inspected for any structural damage or cracks. They are then cleaned and stripped of any existing coatings or paint.

  2. Machining: The wheels are mounted on a specialized lathe, and a diamond-tipped cutting tool is used to remove a thin layer of metal from the surface.. This step smoothens out any imperfections, such as scratches or scuffs, and creates a precise and even finish.

  3. Clear Coating: Once the machining is complete, a clear protective coating is applied to the wheels. This coating adds durability, protects the freshly cut surface, and provides a glossy appearance.
