6082-T6 Drawn Tubing

The 6082- T6 drawn tubing is a medium strength alloy, with the highest strength of the 6000 series alloys, and has excellent resistance to corrosion. Alloy 6082 is classified as a structural metal. The alloy 6082 is the most typically used for machining in plate form. The increased strength of 6082 has seen it displace 6061 in numerous applications despite being a relatively new alloy. A large amount of manganese is added to control the grain structure, resulting in a stronger alloy.
In alloy 6082, producing thin-walled, complex extrusion forms is difficult. The extruded surface finish is not as smooth as other 6000 series alloys of equivalent strength.

Extruded tube: Formed by hot extruding through die available in seamless or structural grade product.

Drawn tube: Seamless extruded tube is brought to final size by drawing through  die.

Some of the applications of 6082-T6 Tubing include

  • Highly Stressed Applications
  • Trusses
  • Bridges
  • Cranes
  • Transport
  • Ore Skips

6082-T6 Aluminium Alloy Supplier & Manufacturer

ILF Ltd is one of the largest metal specialists in the UK with a high volume of stocks and a sophisticated manufacturing process. We can stock and manufacture any kind of aluminium product on a large scale if needed. Our stock includes aluminium blocks in all shapes and sizes, aluminium pipes, sheets, plates, tubes and busbars.

Difference between 6082 and 6061 alloy

The main difference between the two alloys is the cost. 6061 aluminium is much cheaper to manufacture and most readily available. Most manufacturers around the world choose 6061 alloys because the cost-performance is higher than the new 6082 aluminium.
