Fusion Powder Coatings

What is Fusion Powder Coating™?

Our State of the art Fusion Powder Coatings booth

Fusion Powder Coating™ is an advancement in powder coating technology. This new proprietary process is a combination of Eco-friendly clean pretreatment, enhanced application methods, and Pulse Power technology.

Being in the chrome plating business has taught us that wheel finishing is more than just a process it is an art form. Various methods and special techniques are required to produce a finish that resembles jewelry. Traditional powder coating is more of an industrial protective coating than a decorative finish.

At CalChrome we recognize that chrome wheels are not appropriate for every application. Many customers have requested a deep and highly reflective luxury finish, which is not chrome, or black chrome. fusion powder coating is our answer to that request. It has more depth and gloss than a typical power coat while maintaining the durability, corrosion protection and ease of cleaning.

Whether you're going for a complete black out, or adding a sporty look to your vehicle, Fusion Powder Coating may be exactly what you're looking for. listed below are examples of various premium and custom multi-stage color selections.
