You may think that since our name is Eagle Stainless that we only work with stainless steel. However, Eagle is also a distributor of aluminum tubing in a variety of alloys. Aluminum tubing can be used in a variety of applications from aerospace, marine, healthcare and other commercial applications where weight, strength and corrosion resistance are required.
Aluminum alloys contain different alloying materials in different percentages.
Alloys: 2024, 3003, 5052, 6061, 7075
Temper: 0, T3, T4, T6, H14
The exact properties of a given aluminum alloy also depend on its temper or heat-treatment history.
H – Strain Hardened 0 – Annealed T – thermally treated.
Eagle has the ability to cut, bend, flare and fabricate your aluminum tube to your custom needs.
The most common and widely used aluminum alloy is 6061. It is renowned for its excellent combination of strength, formability, and corrosion resistance, making it a versatile choice for a wide range of applications in industries such as aerospace, automotive, construction, and more.
How does the 6061 aluminum alloy differ from other aluminum alloys?
It stands out for its high strength, good corrosion resistance, and versatility in various manufacturing processes. Its ability to be easily extruded, forged, machined, and welded distinguishes it from many other aluminum alloys.
Key advantage – High Recyclability: Aluminum 6061 is fully recyclable without losing its properties, making it an environmentally friendly choice for sustainable applications.
