Having Issues Removing Paint From Skin

I am using Rust-oleum Aircraft remover to strip the skin on my trailer. It takes the paint off but there is some other layer of "something" that won't come off with the remover. It is yellow. Any suggestions on what it is and how to remove it without damaging the aluminum?

Zinc Chromate primer? Maybe? IF so, not sure why it won't strip. It is great stuff but not used much any more and I'm not sure if it can even be bought via retail.

Don't believe everything you read on Wiki.
Still available from Rustoleum and many other sources.

That's good. Wonder if it is the same powerful primer from those years ago? It may be the same, I just wonder if it's watered down. Most EPA attacked products end up banned or weak substitutes.
