More Details About Each Aluminum Tube

  • 6061

    6061 aluminum tube has good formability, corrosion resistance, and weldability. The tube is measured by its outside diameter and wall thickness. Some typical applications include aerospace, electronics, ornamental, marine, machinery, and structural application.

  • 6063

    6063 aluminum tube is a medium strength alloy. It has high corrosion resistance and excellent finishing characteristics. This tube also has good weldability and can be both hot and cold-formed. Typical applications are architecture, electrical, pipe railings, windows, doorframes, railroad transportation, irrigation tubing, and more.

General Info About Aluminum Tube

Aluminum tube comes in different shapes like square tube, rectangle tube, and round tube. Aluminum tube is lightweight and has good heat conductivity. Therefore, it is often used in applications where durability is essential. Aluminum tube has excellent weldability and has medium to high strength properties. Typically, aluminum tubes are used in industrial applications, including frames marine lifting, aerospace, and structural components.
