Surface Preparation and Coatings

Aluminium sheets will have a flat smooth mill finish with no protective coatings. There are many options for further treatment of aluminium and this adds to its appeal and versatility. There are many benefits to aluminium's light weight and softness for working, but a being a softer metal it is more subject to scratching and gouges.
