Aluminum tank for parkerizing


In prior posts I have seen professional finishers frown on home parkerizing. It is safe and easy however at home for a few parts, with waste easily and safely disposed of.

My question is that I have made some small machine parts I want to parkerize, and am wondering why aluminum is not suitable for the tank. I know you can't parkerize aluminum, but is the parkerizing solution contaminated by the aluminum?
