Aluminum 6063 T52 is a popular aluminum alloy that offers good mechanical properties, excellent corrosion resistance, and easy extrudability. The T52 temper designation signifies that the material has been artificially aged, which improves its strength and hardness. This particular alloy is characterized by good formability, excellent surface finish, and high thermal conductivity, making it ideal for a wide range of applications.
Aluminum 6063 T52 is commonly used in the manufacturing of extruded products such as architectural and structural applications. It is widely used in the construction industry, especially for the production of window frames, door frames, and curtain walls. This alloy is also commonly used in the production of industrial products, such as conveyor systems, heat exchangers, and electrical enclosures, due to its excellent thermal conductivity.
FastMetals offers Aluminum 6063 T52 in multiple forms, currently including angle and channel. The angle product is available in a variety of sizes and lengths, and is commonly used in architectural applications and consumer focused products. The channel product is typically used again for architectural applications, doors, construction products and many others.
