"Can anodized wheels be chromed or powder coated?"





April 29, 2010

I was told that I can't powder coat anodized wheels, but can I chrome them? If so, black chrome?

Powder coating is applied over anodizing quite often. As long as your wheels are properly cleaned and prepped, there is no reason why they couldn't be powder coated.

Finally had to put him down 2 years ago, James. Was just about the hardest thing I've ever done. He was 16 years old, and it was his time to go.

Ray,

I think you've got these backwards.

Anodized aluminum has a porous surface of of Al2O3 and AlOOH, which does not conduct electricity. You won't be able to establish a current for which to chrome plate, but powder coating should be fine.
