With any painting system, special multi-step cleaning processes are required to assure maximum paint adhesion.
A pre-treated application prepares the aluminum surface for painting by providing stronger bonding.
The First-Coat of paint is a corrosion inhibiting primer and also provides stronger bonding of the final coloured coat to the aluminum metal. It typically is baked on before the Second Coloured coat of paint is applied.
The final colour coat is a high performance polyester paint that is baked on in a heated furnace at temperature of approximately 400°F.
