Rectangular Tube Aluminum
Aluminum tubes are commonly used material for many applications and uses. We offer Aluminum tubing sizes for residential and commercial construction, manufacturing, and industrial applications. As a widely used aluminum profile shape, aluminum tubes are available in square, rectangular and round shapes in a range of sizes based on the outside dimensions. The tube’s strength is a factor of the aluminum alloy used, the thickness of the walls, and the size of the tube.
Rectangular aluminum tubes are usually available in fewer size variations than round tubes. With square defined corners on both the inside radius and outside radius, rectangular and square tubes typically range in size from 1/2 inch to 8 inches per side, with wall thicknesses of 1/8 inch for smaller tubes to ½ inch for larger tubes.
Produced from both 6061 and 6063 alloy, 6063 alloy rectangular and square tubes are great exposed components for architectural cause of their great finishing qualities. Tubes from 6061 alloy are ideally suited for structural components because the alloy offers a high resistance to corrosion from environmental conditions. It is the most versatile and least expensive of the heat-treatable aluminum alloys and is used where appearance and moderate strength are needed.
