Why IMI 20/20 Wheel and Rim Refinishing System?
When OSHA called for mandatory wheel and rim refinishing 23 years ago, IMI immediately answered. In addition to a time-tested refinishing system, IMI and Dorsey Tire Company Inc. 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.
What does all of this mean to you?

- Open ovens = a consistent cure.
The 20/20 refinishing system is the best on the market:
- 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.
- The appearance is unsatisfactory for the fleets appearance guidelines.
A RIM NEEDS REFINISHING WHEN THERE IS:
With this system, we can offer: IMI Zinc Rich Primer - Premium Super Gloss Powder (IR Ovens) IMI Zinc Rich Primer With the use of the IMI Zinc Rich Primers, we can offer premium corrosion protection for wheels exposed to harsh environments. Zinc Rich wheel powder coatings are thermoset epoxy powders, available in a dark grey color. They are designed for use as a primer or topcoat. The sacrificial action of the zinc provides substrate protection unmatched by any other technology. In addition to corrosion protection, zinc rich basecoats have superior physical properties: good edge coverage, substrate encapsulation, and flexibility. When used as a primer, the coated part should only remain in the oven long enough for the coating to flow into a continuous film. The part is ready for the application of a topcoat when the primer "melts". Once a topcoat is applied, a secondary cure for both coatings is required. To obtain the best corrosion protection, the part must have sufficient cure whether used as a primer or topcoat.
Testing has shown that combining the IMI Zinc Rich Primer with our Super Gloss top coat provides 3 times the Salt Spray Resistance of common industry top coats alone! This means 2,400+ hours of corrosion resistance for your wheels!
