There is a special procedure which could be divided in several steps so that there is no confusion. If steps are followed precisely, the risk of a problem to occur is decreased down to zero but even a minute is enough to turn the process of painting aluminum into a nightmare.
So if you do not to experience the bad side of it, follow the steps given to you in this article. By doing this, you can be sure there will be no problems and you will be able to paint the aluminum object without any problems. In fact, when the steps are followed precisely you will find out that it is not difficult at all to paint aluminum and it could even be a pleasant activity, just like when painting the walls in your home.
But let’s get back to the steps you need to take. First of all, you need to remove the paint on the aluminum object. Never paint directly on the old paint since the results will make you cry out. Don’t doubt about that! If you are wondering how to get rid of the old paint, here is the question: by using a sander. In fact, it depends on the size of the aluminum object you are going to paint. If it is smaller you can use sandpaper also. It will certainly do a nice job!
Afterwards, you need to wet the aluminum surface. However, it would be great if you had a hose and could use the spout. This will help you get rid of the old paint on the surface more efficiently and will wet the surface at the same time. Please note that before starting to paint, the aluminum surface must not be wet. And just one more thing which just cannot remain unmentioned: if you are working with bare (non-painted aluminum), you won’t need a sander or sandpaper, all you have to do then is just wet the surface so as to make it clean. Don’t hesitate to use soap if the surface is too dirty to be cleaned just by the spout. It is very important that you do not start painting aluminum unless it is absolutely clean otherwise the results would not be good.
