Aluminum tubing: which to choose and where to find them

Written on by in Extruded profiles
Aluminum tubing is used in many industrial sectors thanks to the mechanical characteristics of this material. In addition, the possibility to create different alloys opens the road to these products for many industrial sectors.

With its malleability, aluminum can be used in numerous applications, employed by small and medium-sized companies as well as by large industries, from furniture manufacturers to building companies, from bicycles to air conditioning.

According to the specific use you may make of it, aluminum tubing can be made with round, square or rectangular section, and in various alloys and sizes.

Check our short guide on the characteristics of our aluminum tubing.

Before listing the different kinds of tubing made by Profall, it’s useful to specify that all aluminum tubes share these characteristics and advantages:

  • The alloys used to make aluminum tubing can be 1050, 1070, 3103 or 6060;
  • Aluminum tubes weigh much less than steel ones;
  • Aluminum tubes can be anodized, to make their surface resistant to corrosion;
  • They can be painted and do not tarnish;
  • They’re very resistant and durable;
  • They’re certified according to the strictest international standards.

Profall produces three main types of aluminum tubing, included in our category of standard aluminum profiles.
