I'd also think it was done chemicaly.  I tried cleaning an aluminum pan, 
that I thought was steel with lye.  It bubbled a lot, and came out with 
a sandblasted texture.

Normally, I wouldn't mistake aluminum for steel, but this was a well 
used restaurant pizza pan that had a thick build up of carbonized 
oil/grease on it, so it felt heavy enough to be steel!
