Aluminium Channel

Channel

Characteristics

Commonly used in grade 6082-T6, aluminium channel has the following properties:

  • Medium/high strength aluminium/magnesium/silicon alloy
  • Very good surface finish
  • High corrosion resistance
  • Weldable
  • Good for Anodising and Powder Coating

Aluminium channel is also available in grades 6063-T6 and 6063A-T6 and is sold in standard 5m lengths.  For more information on the different characteristics of aluminium grades, please see our aluminium alloys page.

We are also able to cut to length, to high tolerances, using our in-house fabrication facilities.  Please contact one of our sales teams on the numbers above for more information.
