What do I need to do if I am embedding an aluminium post in concrete?

In many situations it is possible to embed aluminium in concrete without any protection. However, if corrosive components have been added to the concrete or if the assembly is in a particularly corrosive environment then some protection is necessary. This protection can be by way of a suitable paint finish such as zinc molybdate primer, an alkali resistant bituminous paint or suitable plastic wrapping.
