At Ion Coatings, our primary goal is to help our customers make the best decision possible when it comes to their powder coating options. To help with that, we’ve put together a list of our most frequently asked questions with answers below.

What colors are available?

Our powder coating colors page lists several websites for vendor’s whose powders we typically use. By viewing their selections you can get a good idea of color selections available. If you’d like to purchase your own powder from one of them, please give us a call so that we can help you estimate how much you will need.

Which is more durable, paint or powder coating?

Powder coating wins every time, being as much as ten-times more durable than ordinary paint. Powder coating provides a very durable baked-on finish that remains smooth, easy to clean, and it contains none of the solvents or toxic byproducts of traditional liquid paints. The final product is highly resistant to most chemicals, brake fluid, acids, and salt.

How much does it cost to powder coat a set of rims?

Like any restoration service, pricing will vary based upon the current condition and complexity of the rims we are refinishing. Cost is also affected by the use of custom colors, multiple coats and special top-coats if you choose to have these special features. However, in general, you can expect to pay around $100 per rim and upwards based upon the above factors.

Is the work performed right on my vehicle with the parts/rims intact?

No. Any part that is to be powder coated has to be fully removed from your vehicle for proper cleaning and surface preparation to be completed so that a durable final result can be achieved. Powder coating also requires that these parts be placed inside our room-sized curing oven to cure the powder coating at high heat. Only the vehicle’s metal parts will withstand this important part of the process.
