I had my 6" re-coated some years ago by P.A. Clausing with BERAL overcoating instead of aluminum. I'll never use anything else again. The aluminum barely lasted 10 years, while the BERAL is now 15+ years old and it still looks just like the day I pulled it out of the crate. Also, you can clean it in your sink! Very tough material. I think P.A. Clausing has a website, but I don't know the URL.
