Repainting our cast aluminum patio furniture


I have been trying to research this for a while and can't seem to come up with consistent answers. We have black cast aluminum patio furniture that originally was done in a powder coated paint and it needs a new paint job.
Want to use a HLVP sprayer to do this but have questions on what type of paint and primer would be the best after the furniture is sanded and prepped. I hate to use a subpar paint that wont hold up to sun fading and weather very well. If anyone has done this please share your advice. I've heard everything from use oil based, to acrylic enamel. If you have a specific product in mind, please share a link to it. Thanks

is the aluminum oxidized? white powder coming off on your hand? if so you need to treat for that first..
