Aluminium Round Bar

Round Bar

Characteristics

Aluminium round bar is often used in grade 6082-T6 and has the following properties:

  • Medium strength aluminium/magnesium/silicon alloy
  • Weldable
  • Good corrosion resistance
  • Machinable

Aluminium round bar is also available in grade 2011 T3/T6, often called 'FMA' (Free Machining Alloy), which offers exceptional machinability at high speeds. Round bar is available in standard 4m lengths and we are also able to cut to length, to high tolerances, using our in-house fabrication facilities, to customers' specific requirements.

(For more information on different alloys of aluminium and their characteristics, please see our aluminium alloys page.)
