Aluminium can be painted with different lacquers based on the final use and the application market. Many types of lacquers can be used, but the treatment to which the surface must be subjected remains unchanged. In fact, aluminium must first be degreased and chemically pre-treated. Only subsequently can it be covered with the appropriate coating. The reasons why you choose to cover aluminum with a particular lacquer can be many:
- Improve its aesthetics
- Increase its properties
- Delay its deterioration
- Protect it from atmospheric events
- Increase the shelf-life of the finished product
