Putting Hinge on Compartment Door

I want to put hinges on my compartment doors. A trip to the local building supply store had piano hinges with a nickel coating. Can I use that on aluminum, or should I get aluminum piano hinges? Any suggestions of suppliers?

Do not use steel piano hinge. Use aluminum piano hinge. The best is the extruded MS20001 but a rolled hinge will work. Both are available here
McMaster-Carr listed under "aluminum continuous hinge" pages 2933 & 2934
