General Properties and Applications
Like rectangular tubes, aluminum square tubes are often used for many of the same purposes. Frequent construction applications of aluminum square tubes include using them for support columns, machined parts, and boating components.
Generally, 6061 aluminum is used in more structural applications where strength is particularly important. This is because the 6061 grade of aluminum is one of the strongest types in addition to being lightweight, corrosion-resistant, and also possesses all of aluminum’s natural and advantageous properties.
Aluminum itself is a lightweight and conductive metal that is non-toxic and does not affect the taste of food or drink. It’s often used in a range of decorative and functional applications. Aluminum is commonly alloyed with copper, manganese, silicon, magnesium, and zinc for further hardness and durability.
