KBS Maxx on Aluminum Wheels

Recommended Posts

I'm restoring an older vehicle that has anodized aluminum wheels.  The original coating is mostly gone, I'll be removing what's left with your KBS Strip.  I'd like to keep the look as close to the original anodized finish, protected,, but not much of a shine.  I thought maybe that I'd try your KBS Maxx clear flat.  Any idea of how this might look?  Any pictures you could share? 

Can KBS Maxx be used with a spray gun?  If so, any specific instructions for use this way?

The KBS MAXX Clear satin or flat would look great. For aluminum, scuff the wheels slightly to maximize adhesion.

KBS MAXX Clear is designed to be sprayed and is incredibly durable.

The KBS MAXX Clear Directions give you details on how to spray KBS MAXX Clear.

For optimum results KBS MAXX Clear should be applied using spray equipment such as Conventional Electrostatic, Conventional suction spray gun, HVLP, Air Assisted Airless, or Airless. Brush or roller application should be used for touch up only.

Conventional Electrostatic: Air Pressure:
40 - 60 psi
Fluid Pressure:
15 -20 psi
Cap: Medium Visc.
Tip: 1.2 - 1.5 mm
Conventional Spray: Air Pressure:
40 - 60 psi
Fluid Pressure:
15 - 20 psi
Cap: Medium Visc.
Tip: 1.2 - 1.5 mm
HVLP Spray: Air Pressure:
15 - 20 psi
Fluid Pressure:
15 - 20 psi
Cap: Medium Visc.
