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 completely hand polished, to bring out the natural luster 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.

High Luster Polish
Like the Brushed Aluminum finish, the High Luster 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 Luster 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 surface of the wheel. When chrome plating, some of these pits may be filled during the copper stage, but with a full High Luster Polish there is no way to do this.
