Couldn't tell you. I'd talk to a good industrial paint store or call the manufacturer. Personally I'd be surprised if it didn't - Zinc Chromate sticks to aluminium and that's about the fussiest substrate there is as far as bonding goes.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
