Aluminium Square Tube 6082T6 is a square tubular shaped 6082 Aluminium Alloy. This alloy is in the wrought aluminium-magnesium-silicon family (6000 or 6xxx series). It is one of the more popular alloys in its series.
6082 Aluminium Alloy is typically formed by extrusion and rolling, but as a wrought alloy it is not used in casting. It can also be forged and clad, but that is not common practice with this alloy. It cannot be work hardened, but is commonly heat treated to produce tempers with a higher strength but lower ductility.
Common uses of Aluminium Square Tube 6082T6 include:
Highly stressed applications / Trusses / Bridges / Cranes / Transport applications / Ore skips / Beer barrels
Aluminium Square Tube 6063T6 is a square tubular shaped 6063 Aluminium Alloy. This alloy is commonly referred to as the architectural alloy.
Developed as an extrusion alloy, 6063 Aluminium Alloy has relatively high tensile properties, excellent finish characteristics and high corrosion resistance.
It is one of the best suited alloys for anodizing applications including hard coat anodizing for air cylinder tubes.
Common uses of Aluminium Square Tube 6063T6 include:
Architectural Applications / Extrusions / Window Frames / Doors / Shop Fittings / Irrigation Tubing
