What Makes Aluminum A Great Option?
- Aluminum is easy to process, light and strong. This is because the alloys in aluminum lend strengths greater than steel. Typical alloy elements are titanium, lead, copper, zinc and brass.
- Aluminum is highly resistant to corrosion. This makes it ideal for use in outdoor products.
- Did you know aluminum is the most recyclable of all materials? In fact, there is no limit to how many times aluminum can be recycled. Recycling saves 90-95% of the energy needed to create aluminum from untouched natural resources. This makes aluminum a cost-effective and environmentally conscious choice!
What Is Welded Tubing?
Welded aluminum tubes have an amazing weight to strength ratio: even the thinnest tubes can have very high mechanical values.
It is also a great alternative to drawn and extruded tube, which can sometimes create imperfections in wall thickness. Instead of heating and pressing the metal through a dye (as in extrusion), the welded tubing process begins with a sheet of aluminum that is rolled into a cylinder. The edges are then welded together with precision and accuracy. The process can offer greater strength at lower gauges.
There are many great uses for our welded aluminum tubes!
Due to its strength and versatility, welded aluminum tubing is used in a wide variety of products in almost every industry.
