the 20/20 Wheel and Rim Refinishing System

by International Marketing, Inc

When OSHA called for mandatory rim and wheel refurbishing 23 years ago, IMI immediately answered. In addition to a time-tested refinishing system, IMI and McCarthy offer superior customer service. The IMI wheel and rim refinishing system is the only system on the market that has a true centrifugal wheel blaster, complete monorail system, and infrared ovens in gas or electric.

  • The 20/20 refinishing system is the best on the market. Here’s why:

    • A lab-tested shot blend for efficient paint removal and minimal surface damage
    • Superior powder coverage
    • Open ovens = a consistent cure
  • Benefits of refinishing:
    • Decreased chance of air loss due to broken bead
    • Decreased chance of full blowout on the road
    • Longer rim life
    • OSHA Compliance
    • Professional appearance
  • You need wheel refurbishing when there is:
    • Any rust, rubber or debris at or in the bead seat
    • More than 3 mils of powder, paint, or debris around the bolt area
    • More than 20% rust present on the rim
  • 20/20 Wheel & Rim Refinishing System Components
    • Electric and gas ovens
    • Vertical wheel lift
    • Power coating and blast media
    • Shot blaster & dust collector
    • Monorail
    • Powder booth and gun applicator

A Difference you can see

The difference in surface damage done by standard 460 shot versus our 20/20 blend is visible. As you can see the 20/20 blend creates a smoother finish. This finish allows for smooth powder application at the mandated 2.5 – 3 mil coating thickness and creates a better bond between wheel surface and coating.

Adhering to the coating thickness guidelines ensure even curing, safer mounting, better rust resistance, and efficient future refinishing. The 20/20 blend will remove coatings in minutes, increasing productivity up to 15 units an hour.

By efficiently removing old coating and creating less etching the 20/20 blend can reduce usage of shot and powder while increasing output. This means less inventory, less labor and less maintenance needed. It also means rims can be in-service longer which further enhances your ability to provide superior service.
