Aluminum Tubing – Round
6061 T6 Aluminum is a heat treatable 6000 series aluminum alloy with magnesium and silicon as its main alloying elements. It is one of the most versatile alloys and offers a wide range of mechanical properties. With medium to high strength, good toughness and a good surface finish, it maintains most of the good qualities of aluminum. Welded by all methods and can be furnace brazed. T6 has an ultimate tensile strength of at least 42,000 psi, yield strength of at least 35,000 psi and ultimate shear strength of 27,000 psi. In thickness it has an 8% elongation and 10% in thicker sections. You can buy aluminum products come in many different sizes and shapes including bars, angles, rounds, plates, channels and beams. 6061 T6 aluminum is commonly used for a wide range of products and applications including fishing reels, truck frames, structural components, machine parts, aircraft and aerospace components, marine fittings, camera lenses, transport, valves, couplings, etc. As one of the steel suppliers of Los Angeles, Tell Steel is ready to fill your order of Aluminum 6061 T6. 6063 Aluminum is an aluminum alloy that uses magnesium and silicon as its alloy components. Referred to as the architectural alloy, it has good general mechanical properties and relatively high tensile properties. It is heat treatable for strengthening and weldable with excellent finishing characteristics. 6063 is weldable by all conventional methods and its machinability is average. It is highly resistant to corrosion. Some common applications for 6063 include door frames, store fronts, window frames, trim items, roofs, sign frames, furniture, pipe railing, etc.
