A. Hi Prajwal. There are some "quasi heat treat" procedures for steel, like Nitriding, which can improve the corrosion resistance, but I am not personally aware of using heat treatment to improve the corrosion resistance of aluminum. Must the casting remain bare rather than being anodized, plated or powder coated?
