(26) 2024T3 round tubing has high strength and excellent
fatigue resistance which is used to advantage
on structures and parts where a good
strength-to-weight ratio is desired. Arc or gas
welding in generally NOT recommended; although this alloy may be spot,
seam or flash welded. Tubing is wrought - meaning neither annodized nor
alclad. Maximum length 12 ft. Cut cut to any length. Any length longer than 8 ft will not ship UPS, Lengths 5 ft or longer
charged UPS handling fee.
(7) 3003 aluminum has the same characteristics as
1100, but higher strength. This soft aluminum
tubing is essentially commercially pure with the
addition of manganese which increases its
strength. Has excellent corrosion resistance, workability, which may be
deep drawn or spun, welded or brazed. Received in 50 ft lengths.
(14) 5052-0 has the highest strength alloy of the
more common non heat treatable grades. Fatigue
strength is higher than most aluminum
alloys, in addition to good resistance to marine
atmoshpere and salt water corrosion. Has excellent workability which may
be drawn or formed into intricate shapes. Its slightly greater strength in
the annealed condition minimizes tearing that occurs in 3003. Can be
deep drawn or spun, welded or brazed. Most always used for fuel and hydraulic
lines. Tubing comes in 12 ft lengths,but can be cut to size, the 1/8 through 1/4 may be rolled for
UPS shipping, however each rolling work hardens the tubings. Rolled tubing
may NOT be returned. 8 ft maximum length shipped UPS, 5 ft or longer
charged additional ...
(73) 6061-T6 bare obtains its full properties by artificial
aging. It is weldable by all methods and
can be furnace brazed. Offers good range of
mechanical properties and can be fabricated by
most of the commonly used techniques. Tensile strength 45,000 psi. Yield
strength 40,000 psi. Not annodized. One size only extruded 1-1/4 x 125.
Comes in 12ft lengths, can be cut to size.8 ft maximum length shipped by UPS. 5 ft or longer UPS
charges additional handling.
One of the highest strength aluminum alloys available. Its
strength-to-weight ratio is excellent, and it is ideally
used for highly stressed parts. May be formed in the
annealed condition and subsequently heat treated.
Spot or flash welding can be used, although arc and
gas welding are not recommended. Maximum length
(4) Hot rolled mild steel bars are used for general purpose
applications. Steel is low carbon grade, having good
over-all mechanical properties. Easy to fabricate by
the usual structural methods, such as mild cold and
hot forming and welding. Tensile strength - 58,000 -
80,000 psi. Yield 36,000 min psi, % Elongation in 8" -
20% min. Purchased in 12ft or 24 lengths.
Fabricated from .016 - 2024T3 aluminum. Weight 5
oz, per 8 ft. length. May be spliced to form longer
stringers. Width 1-1/4", Height 3/4". 8 Foot length
shipped Oversize II via UPS. Cut hat sections are
(2) TE-8 is fabricated from .025 - 5052H34 aluminum
,TE-10 is fabricated from 5052H34 aluminum -3/16"
x 1-1/4" size. Weight .69 oz. per 8 ft length. Must be
purchased in 8 ft or 10 ft sections; however, no
charge for cutting sections shorter than 8 ft UPS
maximum length to ship by UPS. 8 ft required OS2
