Aluminium pipes, also known as aluminium tubes, are long, cylindrical hollow tubes made from aluminium that are widely used in both commercial and household applications. Aluminium pipes have superior strength and excellent corrosion resistance making it suitable for internal and external use. The aluminium pipe is lightweight and durable, making it the perfect choice across an extensive range of aerospace and commercial industrial applications, including healthcare, general fabrication and manufacturing components.
Uses of aluminium pipe include construction, marine, transportation, framing, shipbuilding, displays, general fabrications, shop fittings, medical, automobile and aerospace industries.
Two of the most commonly used grades of aluminium pipe alloys are 6061 and 6063. AA6061 is the most versatile of all heat-treatable aluminium pipe alloys, while maintaining most of the good qualities of aluminium. Pipes made from 6061 aluminium alloy are ideally suited in structural industries as the aluminium alloy is highly resistant to corrosion when exposed to environmental conditions. AA6061 can be welded and fabricated by many commonly used techniques and has good workability in the annealed condition. Aluminium pipe alloy 6061 is used in many different 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. Aluminium alloy 6063 are often used in applications that value aesthetics over strength. 6063 aluminium has good weldability and is easier to form than multipurpose 6061 aluminium. For aluminium pipes that require moderate strength, AA6063 can be heat treated to provide additional strength.
Common Grades, Sizes and Specifications
|Grades||Outer Diameter (O.D.)||Length||Thickness|
|AA6061||Up to 300mm||Up to 6000mm||From 3.0mm|
|AA6063||Up to 300mm||Up to 6000mm||From 3.0mm|
|AA6082||Up to 300mm||Up to 6000mm||From 3.0mm|
Other aluminium pipe sizes and grades are available upon request. You can request to cut your aluminium pipes down to size.
