Brushed Aluminum by CalChrome
Brushed aluminum on alloy wheels is one of the best looking finish alternatives for those who want something different than chrome or paint. This beautiful finish exudes luxury and sophistication where other finishes may not.
The wheels are first fully hand polished, to bring out the natural lustre of the aluminum alloy. A second stage polish is then performed to the wheel radially to add the brushed lines. This step requires specialized mounting and polishing equipment to perform properly. Finally, a clear fusion coat is applied to the wheel to prevent oxidization of the aluminum.
Brushed aluminum starts at $195 per wheel. Please be aware that not every wheel design lends itself to the Brushed Aluminum finish. Please contact us here and have a photo of your wheel available, so your sales person is better able to aid you in quotation.
High Lustre Polish by CalChrome
Like the Brushed Aluminum finish, the High Lustre Polish is unique among the CalChrome finishes, in that the finish that you see is the base material of the wheel itself. The appearance of the finish is not created by adding new materials on top of the wheel, but by bringing out the natural shine in the metals of the wheel.
High Lustre Polished wheels start out like any other wheel, usually painted at the time of manufacturing in the factory. The paint is chemically stripped from the wheel, then initially rough polished to remove any defects left over from the manufacturing process, or to remedy light curb scrapes and scratches. The front of the wheel then goes through progressively finer and finer polishing stages with full de-ionized washes between each step.
As an additional option the rear portion of the wheel can be processed just like the front to give a full custom high luster polish. Additionally, an optional clear fusion coat can be applied to the wheel to help prevent oxidation.
Keep in mind that when removing material from the wheel, small air bubbles that were trapped in the aluminum from the casting process may be revealed. This can result in very small "pits" in the suface of the wheel. When chrome plating, some of these pits may be filled during the copper stage, but with a full High Lustre Polish there is no way to do this.
High Lustre Polish (front of wheel) starts at only $75.00 per wheel.
Exact pricing depends on the size, and configuration of the wheel.
Optional rear wheel polishing starts at $37.50 per wheel.
Optional clear fusion coat starts at $75.00 per wheel.
