Re: Cleaning Aluminum Parts

I recently blasted a used intake clean to powder coat, and after the powder coater baked it you could see the oils leeching out onto the surface. Interesting how things soak into the aluminum like that.

Yes, the recommendation I got was to bake the part before powder coating so the contaminants leech out, clean it with MEK, then powder coat. It worked pretty well for me.
