High Strength Aluminum Tube
Aerospace Aluminum tube in 2024, 6061 and 7075
7075-T6 and 2024-T3 are the two most popular high strength aluminum alloys for tubing. Applications are not just aerospace. Aircraft Extrusion Company supports high strength alloy tube for sporting applications where high strength and low weight is required. Definition: Rectangular and square tube is an aerospace grade, zinc based alloy. We support extruded, drawn and hydraulic tube.
Aluminum also know as Aluminium tube is manufactured either by extruding or drawn. The drawing process is a secondary process after the tube has been extruded where by the tube is drawn down to a specific dimension.
