Sapa Profiles, Hydro Extrusion USA.

Aircraft Extrusion is a great alternative to Sapa Profiles

In addition to our hard alloy extrusions in 2000 and 7000 series aluminum we also supply standard and custom shapes in 6061-T6511AMS-QQ-A-200/8 specification. With the problems that have faced Sapa Profiles many of our customers have reached out to us for extruded shapes in 6061-T6511 AMS-QQ-A-200/8 to aerospace specification. Aircraft Extrusion Company is a great source for 6061 extruded shapes to the aerospace specification AMS-QQ-A-200/8.

In early 2019 Sapa/Hydro announced that they will no longer be producing extruded shapes and profiles in 2024 and 7075 and later in the year announced the decommission of their smaller press for 6061. Of course no explanation is needed for the retreat from aerospace, with a plethra of information online through a number of media outlets.

Why is 6061 becoming such a problem for aerospace?

The supply of 6061 is in abundance, unfortunately, 6061 to aerospace standards is virtually none-existent. Most companies extruding 6061 are focused on high volume commercial business rather than the harder route of producing 6061 to an aerospace specification. Aircraft Extrusion Company can supply standard and custom shapes in 6061-T6511 AMS-QQ-A-200/8 up to 3 inch circle size. Our product range include complex profiles, close tolerance and a small design envelope.

Aircraft Extrusions team of highly-skilled specialists take great pride in their ability to produce the most complex aluminum extrusion designs from a wide variety of industries.
