Vlukon powder coat and surface treatment technology

How come Vlukon Rims have such a long lifetime?
Together with our powder coat supplier AKZO NOBEL, we tested numerous paint methods. Over 30 years Vlukon has developed unique processes of pre-treatment and coating, which guaranteed the highest quality paint on our rims.

Our powder coating line technology, capacity and performance have been updated in 2023.

Why is powder coating preferred over wet paint or zinc electroplating (electro galvanization)?
Powder coating gives superior hardness, durability and long protection against corrosion and creates an esthetic and decorative high finish look of the product.

After the process of degreasing, phosphating, washing and drying the rims, the coating is applied as a dry powder. Because of an electrostatic current in the line, it sticks to the metal rims and is transported to the oven. The curing process heats the dry powder allowing it to flow and form a tough, solid film.

Applying coating powder

Result: long-lasting corrosion protection even in the hardest acid and ammonia environments, like farms.

Our ambition is to have the longest lifetime powder coating.

To ensure optimal lifetime of our rims Vlukon B.V. has for many years used a very modern method of corrosion protection finish painting and application utilizing a powder coating process.

Powder Coating Process:

Degreasing -> Phosphating -> Washing ->Drying -> Powdering -> Harden in oven.

We stick it to our rims:

Our Powder Coating Process Description

Chemicals Used in the Pre-treatment Tunnel

Our powder coating process begins with a three-step pre-treatment to thoroughly clean and prepare the surfaces:

  1. Cleaning, degreasing, and phosphating with Mavomphos 500 LT in water at 50-55°C.
  2. Rinsing with low-calcium municipal water at room temperature.
  3. Passivation with Mavomcoat 1300 in demineralised water at room temperature, with the addition of small quantities of Chemetall additives H7247, H7143, and H7401.

The chemical baths are refreshed monthly with regular monitoring and adjustment of concentrations.

Drying Process

Following pre-treatment, the drying process begins with dripping, potentially assisted by fans, followed by an oven phase.

Capacity and Dimensions

The maximum product dimensions for powder coating orders are:

2000 x 180 x 1650 mm
2000 x 480 x 1100 mm

Minimum order value: £350.

Our line has a standard throughput time of 140 minutes. We can vary the chain speed from 0.75-1.5m/minute.

Oven Specifications

The oven is gas-heated, spans 32 metres in length, with a temperature profile rising to 195°C, and a standard dwell time of 32 minutes.

Paint Thickness and Corrosion Resistance

The standard paint thickness ranges from 100-140 microns. For optimal corrosion resistance, tested according to ISO 9227 and ASTM B117.
