4.Finishing/Painting

Although the 6082-T6 aluminium we use has good corrosion resistance it will tarnish over time especially in marine enviroments.

Anodising is by far the best process of coating aluminium and we can provide the foilnose in an anodised state.

If you want a cheaper method the aluminium can be painted. Painting should be performed after the part is finished as glue will not bond well to a painted surface.

There are many paints suitable for aluminium. I have had success using Plasti-kote aluminium primer followed by a topcoat such as Plasti-kote super enamel. Use multiple thin coats for best results.
