More Details About Each Aluminum Pipe

  • 6061

    6061 aluminum is the most versatile 6000 series alloy. It is heat treatable, easily formed, corrosion resistant, and strong. After anodizing it has an excellent finish. Pipes can be cold drawn or made through hot extrusion and whole punching seamless processing. It is found in micro-motors, irrigation, construction, and furniture.

  • 6063

    This is a prime choice for anodizing, giving it excellent corrosion resistant properties. Though it exhibits much lower strength than 6061 aluminum, its other mechanical properties remain advantageous and many applications are similar, as long as strength is not the critical factor.
