Painting on different automotive substrates (Stainless Steel & Aluminium)




Greetings

I would like to know which of the following is a bigger challenge as a process and why

- Painting on Stainless Steel sheets
- Painting on Aluminium sheets

I ask this question for my academic interest.

Thanking you with regards

Hi, Sony.

In view of the fact that there are thousands upon thousands of acres of painted aluminum roofing and siding exposed to the elements, I'd have to say that stainless steel presents a bigger challenge :-)
