Alclad has three shades of aluminum to show different amounts of weathering.  Polished aluminum is better than the mill finish aluminum the planes were built with, and only found in museum restorations, Squadron Commander's aircraft, and really avid civil aircraft owners.  Their just plain Aluminum is sort of your somewhat new or very well maintained aircraft, and their White Aluminum is a more weathered finish.
