Aluminium C Channels

Aluminium C Channels

Information

Aluminium C Channels, also known as Aluminium Channels or Aluminium U Channels, are general purpose profiles that are widely used in both commercial and in-house applications. Aluminium C channels have moderate strength and exceptional corrosion resistance making it suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. The aluminium C channel has high durability and is lightweight, making it the ideal choice for many applications, including manufacture, furniture, fitting, automobile, construction, structural framing and other general fabrication uses.

Applications

Uses of aluminium C channel include construction, architectural trim, marine, ornamental, framing, structural displays, store fixtures, railings, elevators, glass, mirror and woodworking projects.

Grades

Two of the most commonly used grades of aluminium C channel alloys are 6061 and 6063. AA6061 has the most versatility of all heat-treatable aluminium C channel alloys, while maintaining most of the good qualities of aluminium. It is corrosion resistant and offers a range of good mechanical properties. It can be welded and fabricated by many commonly used techniques and has good workability in the annealed condition. As a result, AA6061 is used in many products and applications, which require strength and corrosion resistance.

AA6063 has a fairly low strength, but excellent corrosion resistance and a smoother surface, as compared to other aluminium alloys. 6063 aluminium has good weldability and more formability than multipurpose 6061 aluminium. For aluminium C channels that require greater strength, AA6063 can be heat treated for added strength.

Grades Width Length Thickness
AA6061 Up to 300mm Up to 6000mm From 1.1mm
AA6063 Up to 300mm Up to 6000mm From 1.1mm
AA6082 Up to 300mm Up to 6000mm From 1.1mm

Other aluminium C channel sizes and grades are available upon request. You can request to cut your aluminium C channels down to size.

Finishes

Finish Description
Mill Finish Original nature of aluminium, where no chemical or mechanical finish is applied on the surface.
Powder Coating Durable film coating that can meet stringent performance criteria, offering a wide variety of colours.
Anodising Resistant to corrosion and wear due to protective aluminium oxide outer layer.
Bright Dipping Electro-brightening treatment to produce smooth surface with high lustre and “mirror” finish.
Brushed Finish Distinctive appearance with uniform fine lines parallel to the brushing direction.
Pretreatment Etched or cleaned with an acidic or alkaline material before a pretreatment coating is applied. Applied coating enhances paint or powder adhesion and is corrosion resistant.
