Can I paint over Alumetron


Matt Klein asked:

I have a problem with painted aluminum window frames that have delamination of the paint from the surface of the aluminum caused by oxidation. After application of Alumetron to a clean bonding surface is it possible then to coat over the Alumetron with paint-i.e. will paint bond to Alumetron? If so, what types of paint, spray paint?

Yes you can paint over Alumetron with a water based latex paint. For added protection, you can then overcoat the paint with a couple of coats of Alumetron. Because of its chemical bonding properties, Alumetron makes an excellent aluminum primer for water based paint.

Thanks for your question,
