Positives Of Aluminum Tubing

Nov 6, 2007
Aluminum tubing is used in many different ways from the race track to household appliances and drinks cans. Aluminum is an excellent choice of metal as it has many desirable properties - it is cheap, widely available, easy to machine, hard to corrode, light weight and extremely tough and durable, in fact aluminum is around one third the weight of steel but almost as strong as some low carbon steel. Add to this the fact that aluminum extrusion produces incredibly cheap, yet high standard aluminum tubing, and there is little wonder that it is used on a large scale today.

Aluminum tubing can be made to a customer's exact requirements and the lengths can be easily cut to specifications. There are so many different sizes of aluminum tubing all of which for different purposes. Aluminum tubing is used extensively in the racing industry, where it is used for exhausts and body parts for cars. When used in exhausts, aluminum tubing provides a durable and non corrosive part that can also withstand high temperatures without any loss of shape. When aluminum tubing is used in this way it will be bent to shape to form the exhaust and this is a straightforward process, although there can be hardening in the bend area, but this is a minor aspect which will not adversely effect the tubing.

Besides being a traditional round tube shape, aluminum tubing can be made in a whole host of different shapes, such as square or triangular to suit its end use. Such shaping can be used in products where a traditional round tube would not be appropriate. The building industry for example, use square tubing extensively in certain processes and the fact the aluminum tubing can be made so quickly and to the builder's exact requirements it is a huge plus. Aluminum tubing can also be made into solid poles, which are more durable than the hollow tubes which can, if thin be bent out of shape with excess pressure. However, it is unlikely that an experienced builder or designer would use such a product when solid tubing would be needed.

Such is the precision of aluminum tubing manufacture today that the thinnest tubing can be created with ease and at speed due to the extrusion process. Once a die has been made for the aluminum tubing it can be replicated time and time again without any loss in quality. As a result the aluminum tubing produced is of a high standard and any extra finishing is not need as the tubing will be clean and free from any imperfections or surface scratches. This method of creating aluminum tubing is very cost effective and add to this the life of an extrusion die, which is practically infinite, then it is the obvious choice for anyone wanting to have aluminum tubing made.
