Rated 5 out of 5 by skobyjay Just a heads up This product works great to prime a metal surface. I would recommend to use a quality sprayer to apply if you are spraying(it may require thinning if it isn't a powerful sprayer). I ended up having to switch to a Graco sprayer so I didn't have to thin the primer. NOTE: This will cause old paint to peel if it is chipped and not applied to a smooth coat of old paint or bare surface. October 22, 2011

Details:I have a painted aluminum hull and I will attempt to remove most of the paint with a rotating wire brush. My question is 2 fold, first will this work with aluminum, secondly how much paint needs to go, can the etching over come most of the residual paint?
A:You have to use this on aluminum, normal primer won't hold, and yes it works great, I've done two boats with it. My 10'x48" Jon boat took about a can and a half, you gotta make sure you get good coverage.Take a sanding block to the hull, like 100 grit, get as much of the paint off as possible, and then power wash it and wipe it down with a solvent to get any grease off your boat.
