F350joe said:As you probably know, you need an aluminum primer, and need to scuff it up pretty good.
Rust-Oleum® Professional Aluminum Primer is a specially formulated base coat for aluminum and resists the problems of blistering, flaking, or peeling paint.

I've painted quite a bit of aluminum lately and the Rusto Pro Series Aluminum Primer that F350joe mentioned has worked out great for me too. I scuff everything first with 80 or 100 grit then blow it off with air. Wipe down thoroughly with acetone or something like Duplicolor degreaser/cleaner. Then hit it with a tack cloth right before hitting it with the primer. I followed the directions on the can closely and the adhesion has always been good and has always taken the topcoat nicely.
After you've primed you can really topcoat with whatever you want, but if you want a nice, durable, gloss or semi-gloss finish it's going to be hard to beat Rustoleum Oil Based that comes in quarts (gallons too if you need a lot). It's oil, but because it's oil it levels out really nicely (but be careful if painting vertically because it will sag if the coat is too thick) and leaves a smooth, really durable finish that's easily washed or wiped down. You can get it at any of the big box stores and it's cheap.
It's been my experience that the Rusto oil based resists scratches and chips really well provided you give it the full recommended cure time before beating it up. However, if you do get deep scratches or chips you will see any touch ups you try to do. If you plan on doing regular touch ups then I'd probably recommend using some sort of spray. Rusto also makes a "professional" grade spray in gloss black (comes in a silver can like the alu primer) which is also pretty good, but not as durable in my experience as what comes in the quarts.
If you end up using something else that works out well be sure to let us know. Good luck!

Will rustoleum work on aluminum?

Subsequently, one may also ask, what kind of paint do you use for aluminum?
Buy acrylic or latex paint.For best results, choose paint with a matte or satin finish. While glossy paint will work, it is not recommended because it will show off any imperfections in the metal. Because you already applied the primer, you can use any type of paint you want.
Likewise, what is a good primer for aluminum? Rust-Oleum Professional Aluminum Primer is a specially formulated base coat for aluminum surfaces. It provides a tight bond for the top coat, thus resisting the usual problems of blistering, flaking, or peeling paint.
Also know, does paint stick to aluminum?
Aluminum spray paint is made specifically to adhere to aluminum products. It can be used both indoors and outdoors. It is quick to apply in steady streams. Many aluminum spray brands come with the primer, which cuts down on prepping, painting and drying time.
What is the best way to paint aluminum?
- Thoroughly clean the aluminum and let dry.
- Sand the metal surface with coarse-, then fine-grit sandpaper.
- Apply self-etching primer, let dry, then sand again.
- Apply paint (multiple coats, and sanding between coats, may be necessary).
- Apply enamel sealer.
Basic rustoleum oil based paint for aluminum boat?
1] scuff sand entire boat with a sanding sponge to ensure it is smooth
2] scrub boat with soap and water and rinse well
3] wipe down THOROUGHLY with white vinegar and let dry
4] paint Rustoleum (thinned out some) with a good natural bristle brush - two coats. Let dry well and then wet sand LIGHTLY with 400 wet and dry paper. Tack off dust etc with a clean cotton rag and paint thinner, then brush on third and final coat with very clean brush. This should get you by cheaply, which sounds like your goal. The other primers mentioned may make a better job, but good prep and the vinegar will do the same trick.

I am not a chemist, so I hope no chemisty PHDs shoot me . However, the following is basically (acidically?!) correct to explain this. While some commercial products may offer other reasons they are used for certain applications, vinegar will get you by cheaply.
Vinegar works because it is acidic. Aluminum and galvanized steel does not "corrode" because their rust does not flake (chelate??) away but instead is a "stable" oxidized surface. That is why aluminum and galvanized metal peel when not treated with an etching product- the oxide (sometimes combined with an over-smooth surface) does not allow the paint to bond to the base metal.
The etching products (or vinegar) create a surface which will not peel because when it is used, the paint is then being applied to a clean "toothy" surface instead of the somewhat loose oxide surface.
There are always better ways, but if all you want to do is buy a $15 can of Rustoleum, you will be ok using vinegar instead of a commercial product to prep the surface.

From such an explosion of fantasy, I finished in just a couple of minutes, without even touching my penis. In this spirit, my life went on and on. This young man, whose name I did not know, became a frequent visitor to my imagination during masturbation. And here's what an amusing situation happened next.
