Abstract : The following conclusions were drawn from the experiments: anodic oxidation compacted with organic dyes, applied on polished aluminum exhibited the best behavior; unpolished aluminum requires a 20 mu m thick layer to ensure a service life of more than 5 years; in order to retain the decorative appearance, a sunlight-resistant dye must be used; painting of the aluminum is very efficient, assuming that the paints are resistant against the environment to which they are exposed.
