High gloss compaction is one way to make a surface hard and scratch resistant. At the same time, the surface is protected against corrosion. High gloss compaction, for example, is used to refine rims and, in the tuning sector, is a way of preserving noble and high-quality rims. In the following, we will go into the procedure and give you useful information, which should be taken into account when using glossy compacting. A successful high-gloss sealing of rims requires time and good equipment.
Rims can be refined in different ways. One of the most complex and at the same time high-quality finishing methods is clearly high-gloss compression. With this method, a rim is clamped in a trough. In addition to the rim, there are also polishing and grinding tools in the trough area. The rim is made to vibrate for refinement. During the refinement process, the degree of inclination, oscillation amplitude and direction of rotation should be optimally adjusted. Furthermore, an optimally adjusted amount of polishing compound and fresh water is required. In order for the result of the finishing process to be ideal, the factors mentioned should be exactly right. It takes about 30 hours to high-gloss a rim.
Preparation of the rims
Before the refinement, the rim must be freed of any paint residue. No aggressive substances should be used to remove paint from the rim. The rim surface must not be damaged or have porous areas. If you want to refine the rim yourself and remove the paint gently, then you have to plan around two to three hours for the paint stripping of a rim. If the rims are roughly blasted, it may be that they can no longer be refined (high-gloss compacted).
High-gloss compaction - what are the advantages?
A high-gloss compacted surface is harder than an untreated surface. Furthermore, appropriately refined rims are scratch-resistant and protected against corrosion. The compounds used give you a smooth, bright and high-gloss surface. The advantage of the refining process is that the rim is evenly compressed and polished. And that the result is beyond doubt, as shown by the breathtaking photos and the video (further down) from mr-felgen-teileveredelung.de. Thank you again at this point!
High gloss compression - are there disadvantages?
In this finishing process, no disadvantages are known
Rims in chrome look received: Glossy compaction is a popular refinement method in the tuning sector. The refined by the process rim gets an appearance similar to the chrome look. Alloy wheels become more scratch-resistant, corrosion-resistant and harder. A Chromefelge has the disadvantage that the repair is expensive compared to an aluminum rim, which is highly glossy compacted. A high-gloss aluminum rim, however, can be easily reworked. Provided the rim is well glossy compacted. The rim should be of high quality so that the mirror-finished rim is really optimally hard. The rim quality and the aluminum quality play a major role in the result of the high-gloss compaction.
High gloss compaction - steps:
- The rim must be stripped of paint
- Damage to the rim must be removed manually
- Machine pre-grinding of the rim is necessary
- Machine fine grinding should be done
- Rim must be polished by machine
- Machine glossy compaction should be done
- Sealing or manual cleaning as last steps
