    One of my favorite ways of deburring aluminum is to use a stainless steel scraper. Just a hand sized piece of stainless steel sheet that has been sheared but not deburred. The razor sharp edge left when stainless is sheared will deburr aluminum with very little effort.

    I don't know how it would work for scuba applications, but in aerospace applications that require corrosion resistance they use a product called AlClad. AlClad is aircraft grade aluminum the is plated with pure aluminum. You get the strength benefits of alloyed aluminum with the superior corrosion resistance of a pure aluminum coating.
