Painting aluminium

Since aluminium is a highly reactive metal, it always has an oxide coat in a free atmosphere. For this reason, a plasma treatment, in particular plasma cleaning in the hydrogen plasma which reduces the oxide coat, improves the paint adhesion. A cross-cut test is used to check the aluminium substrate for sufficient paint adhesion.
