Hey paint guys, how do I....

How do I clear polished Aluminum? Can I just lay clear down like I would over paint? Do I need a specific clear?

I have some polished alum goodies I am putting on my motor, and I know I will be too lazy to hand polish them all the time...

Re: Hey paint guys, how do I....

if u can get ahold of dau 75 from ppg.. its an old and outdated clear but sticks to polished aluminum very well..

the other way is to use a good adhesion promoter like ap01 from hok and clear it without scuffing the paint.. but adhesion isnt optimal but will work.

Alsa Corp makes a product called Clear 4 Chrome that they claim has excellent adhesion to both chrome and polished metals... ive never used it so i cant say how well it works
