Aluminium Alloy 6061-T6 Aluminium Tube

Short Description:

6061 aluminum pipe is a variant of aluminum pipe grades. Pure aluminum and alloyed aluminum is utilized for making the aluminum pipes as well. The 6061 pipes are made from a silicon and manganese alloy of aluminum. There are various schedules of the piping which indicate the pressure classes and the wall thickness. The 6061 T6 schedule 80 aluminum piping is an average pressure grade, and it can withstand substantial pressure in a domestic application.

The metal has decent corrosion resistance. The addition of manganese and silicon provide enhancement in strength. 6061 Schedule 40 aluminum piping is of average strength level and will not collapse during bending like pure aluminum grade does.

Product Introduction

The aluminum 6061-T6 piping is an average to high strength metal which has a good durability paralleled to other grades. The 6061-T6 aluminum structural piping is utilized in structural applications which need high strength. Aluminum is weak, but the alloying and the heat treating make it average to high strength, which could then be utilized in applications.

The 6061 aluminum thin walled pipe is utilized in applications in which the finish must be good-looking. Almost all aluminum alloy piping metals have a good finish and look better. Aluminum piping is also utilized in aesthetic applications. However, aluminum reacts with water. So it isn’t ideal as a plumbing metal under normal conditions.

The 6061-T6 aluminum seamless piping is modified for strength, yet it maintains most of the good mechanical characteristics of aluminum, like corrosion resistance. Most applications of the 6061 T651 aluminum welded piping can be seen in the aerospace and aircraft industries where weight must be reduced. The aluminum alloy 6061 ERW piping is easy to weld, so applications in which welding is needed can use these pipes.
