If you use 6063 Aluminum you don't have to powder coat or buff. It's anodized

Anodizing is a separate operation and not a property of 6063 alloy.

Anodizing is an electrochemical process that converts the metal surface into a decorative, durable, corrosion-resistant, anodic oxide finish. Aluminum is ideally suited to anodizing, although other nonferrous metals, such as magnesium and titanium, also can be anodized

True! Mine was already anodized and clearcoated when I selected the material
