Product Description

The 6063 aluminum rectangular tubing with T52 temper meets American Society for Testing and Materials International ASTM B221 specifications. The 6063 aluminum alloy, also known as architectural aluminum, is a medium-strength material with excellent corrosion resistance and good weldability. The material has been extruded, a process of compressing metal and pushing it through a die to create the shape. The aluminum has a T52 temper, meaning it has been heat treated for increased strength.

Aluminum and aluminum alloys are lightweight compared to steel, brass, and copper, and have high strength-to-weight ratios. They offer good corrosion resistance and conductivity of heat and electricity, as well as moderate formability and machinability. Aluminum alloys include elements that modify the aluminum to achieve specific properties such as better weldability or greater strength. All series of aluminum alloys are nonmagnetic. Aluminum alloys have temper designations, indicating that the material has undergone a process to achieve certain properties of strength and hardness.

Tensile strength, used to indicate the material’s overall strength, is the peak stress it can withstand before it breaks. Corrosion resistance describes the material's ability to prevent deterioration caused by atmosphere, moisture, or other medium. Wear resistance indicates the ability to prevent surface damage caused by contact with other surfaces. Toughness describes the material's ability to absorb energy before breaking, while hardness (commonly measured as indentation hardness) describes its resistance to permanent surface deformation. Formability indicates how easily the material can be permanently shaped. Machinability describes how easily it can be cut, shaped, finished, or otherwise machined, while weldability characterizes the ability to be welded.

Wall Thickness: 0.125Overall Width: 3Number of Items: 1Overall Length: 12Thickness: 1 Verified Purchase
Biggest problem: the wall thickness specifications are really off, it's between 0.130-0.145", varies from side to side. The product info states it to be 0.125(probably a nominal value). I was counting on them to be precise enough to mount onto 3/4 inch rectangular bars but because they are much too thick that won't work now. The overall thickness of the tube measured on my digital callipers was 1.02inches thick, and 3.02inches wide, which was acceptable enough for my purposes(a mounted support tube) but the incorrect wall thickness messed up the internal thickness, making it unable to be mounted.

Also, as another reviewer mentioned, the tube comes really badly dinged and nicked... Not sure if this is bad enough to affect the precision of the parts, as some of the scratches are actually quite deep (about 0.05") and there are A LOT of scratches, I will excuse the manufacturer because it was shipped by amazon in a box with some other mild steel parts I ordered, which probably didn't help. It's not the biggest deal but you don't want to use this for an aesthetic project.

Other than that, there aren't any issues, it seems like it would be solid enough for my purposes.

This item (aluminum tube stock) is exactly as advertised and exceeded my requirements for quality. The price, including free shipping, was excellent. My only complaint was the length of time it took to ship the item (delay was due to slow shipment preparation). I would buy again!

Lots of bangs and scratches on the piece I received. Ends were cut very very rough to the extent it looked little mangled. I had cut off an inch at the end to get an even looking rectangle.

The alumunim tubing arrived just as expected. It was packed well and met all expectations. I would glady purchase from the same vendor again.

It was as advertised. The ends where the tubing was cut were a bit rough (sharp edges), but easily "fixed" with a file.

I didn't. But I'm glad I can get this stuff. Was fabricating a solar mounting system and this filled a very important niche. I'm no expert on metals but I did hop up and down on it to test its strength and it didn't budge. Which is good, because all 340lbs of me would have come painfully crashing down. Did what I wanted it to and then some... :)

I'm so happy to have found this tubing. The local hardware store only carries a few sizes. The edges were rough, but that is to be expected. It cut easily with a reciprocating saw and was machined equally as easily with a drill and titanium bit. It has truly sold me on aluminum as a replacement to wood.
