What we do and how we do it

In 2014 RRT made a significant investment into new bespoke facilities which include an automated pre-treatment and paint plant, the likes of which is unparalleled in the UK, and state-of-the-art equipment to repair and finish alloy wheels.

Our control processes combined with our unique facilities enable us to offer a service that cannot be bettered.

For key account B2B, OEM and De-Fleet customers, we provide a free of cost collection and delivery service.

Our operation is split between to adjacent premises, which physically separates all “preparation processes” from “finishing / quality inspection”. This eliminates the risk of airborne particulate contamination, improving overall finished product quality.

The process - what we do

All the alloy wheels that we refurbish are subject to the same process; there are no half measures in our procedures.

  • Paint Removal – our purpose designed, stripping process' use a combination of heat and environmentally friendly solutions to remove all existing paint and lacquer from the wheel.

  • Shot Blasting – Our automated shot blasting machine removes all minor abrasions and any corrosion prior to hand finishing

  • Surface Preparation – Meticulous care is taken to repair / refinish all areas of the wheel using special powered hand tools. Buckled wheels can be straightened and deep gouges and cracks repaired by welding.

  • Pre-Treatment – Our automated, track based pre-treatment is unique in the UK ensuring we are able to achieve the highest quality finish on all wheels.

  • Surface Finishing – Our combination powder and wet colour coating process is available in all standard manufacturer colours and finishes, including Shadow Chrome. We also offer a colour matching service and can create bespoke colours for those customers wishing to create that special look.

  • Diamond Cutting – We can digitally profile any wheel face and using our state-of-the-art CNC Machine Centers, provide a precision Diamond Cut Finish to the face of a wheel.
