Painted Aluminium

Painted aluminium products perform differently than uncoated aluminiumĀ as the paint coating affects reactions with the atmosphere, and reduces the aluminium surface area that can be sacrificed to defend against localised corrosion.

Pit corrosion can result from damage to the paint coating and exposure to corrosive substances. It is necessary to protect against wet contact with concrete, treated timber, steel, stainless steel, and butyl rubber.
