Aluminum Tubing Suppliers
Sapa Extrusion is one of North America’s premier aluminum tubing suppliers, offering a product for virtually any type of application, ranging from high pressure and mechanical to architectural and framing. We are pleased to offer a comprehensive range of extruded aluminum shapes, profiles and alloys for residential and commercial construction, manufacturing, and industrial applications.
As a widely used aluminum profile shape, aluminum tubes are available in square, rectangular and round shapes in a range of sizes based on the outside dimensions. The tube’s strength is a factor of the aluminum alloy used, the thickness of the walls, and the size of the tube. Round tubes are available in the widest variety of sizes, from an outer diameter of 5/8 inch to 16 inches and wall thicknesses of 1/16 inch to 1 inch. Rectangular and square aluminum tubes are usually available in fewer size variations than round tubes, and typically range in size from 1/2 inch to 8 inches per side, with wall thicknesses of 1/8 inch for smaller tubes to ½ inch for larger tubes.
Produced from both 6061 and 6063 alloy, tubing from 6063 alloy makes excellent exposed components for architectural use due to its superior finishing qualities. Tubes from 6061 alloy are more perfectly suited for use as structural components because the 6061 alloy offers a high resistance to corrosion from environmental conditions. It is the most versatile and least expensive of the heat-treatable aluminum alloys and is used where appearance and moderate strength are needed.
In addition to an extensive selection of aluminum tubing, Sapa Extrusions also offers a wide range of aluminum rod, bar, and pipe, plus structural angles, channels, tees, zees, I-beams and H-beams.
