Similar to making pasta, extruded aluminum bars are created by pushing malleable material through dies to achieve a distinct shape. At Industrial Metal Supply, we stock round, square, rectangle, hexagonal and tee bars, which all have specialized uses. Each profile is available in 6061 aluminum alloy, which contains small amounts of copper, magnesium, iron, and silicon for improved weldability and heat treating. The rectangle and tee aluminum bars are also offered in the 6063 alloy, which has strong corrosion resistance and finishing properties, as well as ideal electrical conductivity. You’ll find these high-grade materials everywhere from power stations to stair railings, although they’re most commonly used to deliver electricity.
