It's no secret that it's hard to get paint to stick to aluminum. Success usually involves sanding, etching, and applying a toxic chromate primer.
With TotalBoat Aluminum Boat Paint, etching is optional and may improve adhesion, but what's most important is that this unique paint is designed to be applied directly to shiny, bare aluminum. It has an advanced, polyurethane formula that makes it bond strongly and durably without etching and priming first. It's also more environmentally friendly because it's chromate-free, with an extremely low VOC content and almost no odor.
The surface prep is actually fast and easy for bare aluminum in good condition—just clean thoroughly to remove any dirt, oil, grease or contaminants, then dry completely. If the bare aluminum has a dull, oxidized look, use 220-grit to sand until shiny, remove sanding residue, wipe with denatured alcohol or use TotalBoat Aluminum Boat Etch Wash as directed, and allow to dry completely before immediately applying TotalBoat Aluminum Boat Paint.

Two coats covered my 14' Valco hull after sealing seams and rivets with Gluvit. Looking terrific. Leans up easily

Two coats on an old aluminum fishing boat and it looks brand new

Not sure how the chemistry works but this stuff is amazing. It handles and works like a high quality latex house paint and cleans up with simple soap and water. After it dries really good for a few days its like powder coating. The finished product on aluminum is very durable and self leveling upon application. I rolled it on an aluminum boat with great results then decided to re-paint my aluminum clad pop up camper. Wow, it looks so professional. The sheen is a satin smooth wonder and the water resistance is so capable that I painted the previously waterproofed roof of the camper as well for a seamless monochromatic finish and appearance. EVERYONE askes at the camp sites what kind of pop up it is and who does the awesome subdued gray finish. So, in summation, this product is the real deal. Don't let the $100 bones a gallon deter you, its worth it.

Easy to use

I used Aluminum Boat Topside Paint on aluminum pool coping that was 35 years old. The white finished has worn away in parts and was down to bare aluminum metal. I researched into how to paint this type of finish and found this product. I called technical support and they were very helpful. After a light sanding, I applied multiple coats of the product with a brush. It adhered very well. The product does not cover with one application. It took 4 full coats and some area 5 coats to finish the job. It came out beautiful like new.

Used it to paint an aluminum flat bed trailer.

Bought this paint for a 16' deep V boat. Prepped the hull and rolled it while it was on the trailer. Touched up with a quality brush and you can not tell where the brush was used. Good paint, not the best but the price and the ease of rolling and brushing makes up for a few future touchups. Does not use hardener. So a nice solid clear coat should mitigate a lot of scuffing. Over all good paint, easy to apply and not too bad on the price.

Followed the instructions and rolled and tip the hull of a 1971 Starcraft and the job came out great. Not quite like new, but certainly not a brush job. Paint levels out nicely and I ended up with a spray like finish. The paint is thin and required 3 coast to get the build I desired.
