Crafted with small amounts of silicon and magnesium, the 6061 aluminum channel is highly resistant to corrosion, and can be found in a diverse range of industries. Used in architecture, transportation, and even photography, the 6061 alloy is designed for improved machinability, while still maintaining an impressive strength-to-weight ratio. 6061’s inside radius corners also help to boost structural integrity. Meanwhile, the 6063 alloy of aluminum channel has greater formability and corrosion resistance than 6061, as well as sharp corners for a visually appealing design. However, these properties also make the 6063 structurally weaker than 6061. Depending on your needs, one of these aluminum alloys will help get your next project off the ground.
