ColorWheelz — HiTech Wheel Coating
Dave Nickelson had an idea while sailing his boat in Minnesota. Most sailors
we know like to invent new and innovative ways to improve the workings of
their boats. Dave is no exception. He owned a plastics company at the time
and was always inventing new things for his customers. "Why not a coating
for a sailboat wheel," he thought? He did some tinkering and came up with a
method to apply the coating, and at the end of the season, Dave went back to
other pressing needs with the company. He still thought it was a good idea,
and as the next season neared, he set out to select the right product for
the job. He needed a polymer of industrial quality that could also withstand
constant exposure to sunlight, rain, and ice; the full gamut of what nature
could and would throw at his wheel.
|The Racing Finish A Racing finish is very smooth
while providing the same kind of grip and insulating properties.
After some experimenting, he developed several prototype finishes and
applied them to the wheels of several sailboats in his marina. It didn't
take long for others to want to be included in this experiment. Lake
Superior can be cold, and the thought of an attractive, insulated wheel was
something delightfully new! After several years of age testing, he decided
to go for it. ColorWheelz was born in the summer of 2006 with the first
product offered to the public after Thanksgiving.
What makes a ColorWheelz wheel unique is the coating. It is an all weather
vinyl product that has been tested in tough exterior use over the past 30
years. In fact, it is so tough, they have a 10 year guarantee on it.
Ship your wheel to them, prepaid round-trip, and usually within a week of
receiving it, they send it back with a spectacular new finish! Their store
page on the web site has packaging and shipping suggestions for you. If for
some reason you wish you would have ordered a different color or change the
color schemes on your canvas, whatever the reason, you can return your wheel
to be re-coated at only half of the original price. Anytime!
|The Elite Finish The Elite finish is for
cruising and general use.
ColorWheelz is available in thirteen colors and two finishes. The colors
were selected to match popular Sunbrella fabrics.
