Painting aluminum mast

Doing my annual mast maintenance. I have an aluminum mast, i have noticed it looks like it used to be painted black. I guess after years of use, it has started to fade off and now just looks bad. Question is, why would anyone paint an aluminum mast in the first place? Maybe it is some type of protective paint, i really dont know. To get to the point, i am considering just repainting it. So is there any special marine paint for aluminum anyone here can recommend?
