General Properties and Applications
One of the main workhorses in construction and fabrication, aluminum flat bars are used in a variety of applications. Principally, they are most popular for framing and supports as they can be cut and welded to fit in a multitude of spaces.
6061-T6 Aluminum flat bars are also great alternatives to steel. Aluminum is also more corrosion-resistant than steel which makes it better for long-term use where oxidation could be a problem.
Aluminum itself is a lightweight and conductive metal that is non-toxic and does not affect the taste of food or drink. It’s used in a range of decorative and functional applications. In addition, aluminum is commonly alloyed with copper, manganese, silicon, magnesium, and zinc for further hardness and durability.
