Known for being durable and relatively light, aluminum is the second most popular metal after steel. Generally, this metal helps improve strength and versatility in any application. For example, 6061 aluminum alloy employs small percentages of magnesium, copper, iron, and other minerals to affect heat treatability and weldability. On the other hand, 6063 aluminum is better suited for projects where cosmetics and corrosion resistance are more important, rather than overall strength. To achieve its anodize-friendly properties, 6063 alloy is composed of a higher proportion of aluminum.
