Aluminium Box Sections
What is aluminium box section and what is it used for?
We hold a comprehensive stock of 6063 and 6082 grade aluminium box section and square tube. Our wide range of thicknesses and dimensions is available in bright polished, brush polished, and mill finish.
Aluminium box section is also often called square tube and is used for making frames, general fabrications, garden fruit enclosures, shopfitting, and furniture making.
Grade 6063 and 6082 square tube (or box section) is a light-weight aluminium that has good strength properties. It is easy to cut and most profiles can be successfully cut with a hacksaw and a good quality blade. Drilling and machining aluminium is much easier than steel and it can be welded with the correct equipment and training, but this is a little more difficult than steel to master.
This product is supplied in grade 6082 for larger sizes and 6063 for the smaller dimensions. Both presentations are produced by the extrusion method where an aluminium billet is pressed through a hard steel die.
