What is 6061 Aluminum Round Tube?

6061 AL round tubing is formable, machinable, and weldable, offering an excellent strength-to-weight ratio. This aluminum alloy can be heat treated and is commonly anodized for further corrosion prevention. Industrial Metal Supply stocks a wide selection of 6061 aluminum tubing in various thicknesses and diameters in the following lengths:
  • 12’
  • 20’

What is 6063 Aluminum Round Tube?

Industrial Metal Supply’s 6063-T832 round AL tubing is furnished within the T832 temper process. T832 is a solution, heat-treated temper process that cold works the 6063 AL tubing and then artificially ages the tubing. It has the highest strength compared to the 6063 aluminum round tube variants. 6063 aluminum round tube is available in several diameters and thicknesses in the following lengths:
  • 12’
  • 20’

What’s the Difference Between 6061 & 6063 Aluminum Round Tube?

Anodized aluminum tubing 6061 and 6063 have many similarities, such as corrosion resistance and an enhanced strength-to-weight ratio, but their differences allow them to be used for contrasting applications. 6061-t6 aluminum tubing is used across all industries for its strength, weldability, machinability, formability, and versatility.
Conversely, 6063 aluminum round tube is revered for its mechanical properties since it can be easily heat-treated and welded. Due to its high aesthetic value, 6063 aluminum round tubes are often used for architectural and extrusion applications.

What is T6 Metal Heat Treatment for Aluminum?

6061-t6 tubing is a heat-treated aluminum product that provides increased strength and structure to cast aluminum parts. T6 tempering is a three-step process that casts the metal at extremely high temperatures for several hours. The aluminum is then transferred to a liquid solution bath and rapidly cooled. The T6 metal heat treatment is completed once the aluminum casting is heated at a lower temperature for 3-5 hours and then naturally cooled. T6 heat-treating benefits include:
  • Higher mechanical properties
  • Less deformation under heavy loads
  • Harder aluminum
