Aluminium is usually painted to improve the aesthetic appearance of a final product or to carry out an anticorrosive treatment that has the purpose of giving new properties to the initial product. The types of paint that can be used on aluminium surfaces to obtain a better aesthetic appearance of the product or to carry out an anticorrosive treatment are powder or liquid. The difference between powder and liquid coating is given by the durability and hardness of the paint, its adhesion and the effect that the final product must have.
Focus on liquid coating
Aluminum can be coated with different types of liquid paint. But before applying particular coating, it has to be chemically degreased. This process assures the removal of possible residues from previous production steps, provides extreme cleaning and removes bed smell. After this, you can apply the most suitable lacquer.
