With CSA coming down on fleets for poor vehicle maintenance, it’s important that your truck’s wheels are in a well maintained condition. That’s why Shrader developed the Thermobrite-3 Rim-Restoration process. Our six step, fast turn around process returns rims back to their original luster. The average life on the Thermorbrite-3 process is 24-months. To achieve this we make your wheels look newer, longer by:
Baking off the old paint
Rims are placed into the Thermal Burn-Off Oven for removal of all organic materials.
Shot blasting to remove all rust
Rims are put through the brief shot blaster for a final touch up and removal of stubborn rust.
Inspect for cracks and worn out bolt holes
The rims are inspected insuring only safe rims are returned to service.
Apply a heavy primer coat
A powder-rust preventative primer is applied and cured, followed by a final powder coat.
Apply the powder coat in the color of your choice
Multiple colors available. Coated rims are then sent through the curing oven a second time by a powered monorail.
Final inspection for quality
Finished Thermobrite Rims are inspected and safetly wrapped to ensure your satisfaction.
New Thermobrite-3 wheels are available for purchase or we can restore your current wheels. Need more info or want to order? Contact a sales representative or call 800-589-6589 to speak with our rim reconditioning experts! Check out the process video below.
