This is the same process used in the space industry to "prime" aluminum
before bonding with epoxy. Several epoxy suppliers will provide a kit to
prepare an aluminum substrate prior to bonding. Check with WEST SYSTEMS EPOXY
also known as The Gougeon Brothers, PO Box X908, Bay City, Michigan 48707.
Their products are available in the avarage Boat store.
By the way, don't confuse this process with the alodine process which
provides less protection.
