Ok. In process of stripping 36 year old paint
job on a Famet aluminum mast
and boom. Once done what next? I read all the prior mast
anodize or paint
threads but still a bit confused on the chemical timeline and necessity in prep not being a alchemist. Chime in all you chemistry wizards!
Is it Alumiprep 33 followed by zinc chromate or alondine. Do alodine and zinc chromate do the same thing?
One or the other better? Both?
After these steps would Nyalic be a better top coat option than a 2 part epoxy
? Imron or Awlgrip? Paint then Nyalic on top? Or is that overkill? Just Nyalic alone on bare metal? What say you?
Anyone have actual marine environment
experience with Nyalic?
In end a pretty white mast and boom is nice and returns spars to OEM specs, but I'm fine with whatever will not break piggy bank, elbow
or lungs in process and will last long enough that I do not have to do again prior to 36 years. By then it will be somebody else's headache.
