    I looked at the material down at Home Depot, it looks like clear anodizing on there.

    Home Depot and Lowes are my go tos for material since I only purchase a little here and there.
    I have had some mixed results with weldability.
    Someone indicated you can tell the aluminum composition from the label but I am not seeing anything obvious.
    Even going to the suppliers site does not give me much info.
    So it is hit and miss for now.
