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.

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.

Fairly straight and lightly scratched.
5 day wait from the guys in brown.
