What is Fusion Powder Coating™
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 neither 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.

Pro: Availability to quickly change colors due to multiple fluidizing hoppers. Resulting in faster processing times. Also eliminates cross contamination as no two colors are ever mixed in the same container.
Con: Box feeder unit which as shown above does not fluidize the powder which can result in uneven levels of application. Difficult to change colors as it requires removal of suction tube to be thoroughly cleaned prior to installing into next color. DIRTY!
FUSION POWDER COATING OVEN
Pro: State of the art new for 2014 Government required low nox emitting numerically controlled 800,000 BTU oven. Insures consistent bake and cure parameters.
Con: Traditional blast oven, non-compliant.
ATTENTION TO DETAIL
Pro: Being a professional wheel finisher extra detail shown to mask off back pad to ensure exact fitment.
Con: No masking, will not fit back on to the vehicle without complications due to the build up of the coating.
PULSE POWER TECHNOLOGY
Pro: Pulse power technology insures even coverage in deep recessed areas. Wheel designs often require this extra detail. Eliminating Faraday cage effect.
Con: Excessive 'Orange Peel' resulting in an inconsistent textured finish. This is due to buildup on flat surfaces trying to get powder in to the deep recessed areas.
FIXTURES AND HANGING METHODS
Pro: Wheel specific mounting fixtures ensure complete coating encapsulation of the entire wheel.
Con: Generic wire hanging method which creates a seem around the barrel. Which can peel and corrode.
Pro: Environmentally friendly non-intrusive in-house wheel preparation which maintains all sharp edges and definition of the original design. We NEVER sand blast.
Con: Insufficient wheel preparation (sand blast) which did not remove damage on face, still noticeable through the finish and leaves rounded off edges and excessive orange peel.
