Extrude-A-Trim’s standard extrusions are made from aluminum alloys in the 6xxx series. This aluminum grade is alloyed with magnesium and silicon for a moderate increase in strength and very good corrosion resistance. These properties make them the number one choice for architectural and structural applications. See our comparison chart below for more information.
|6061||This alloy keeps most of the good qualities of aluminum and is very versatile. It has a large range of mechanical properties and corrosion resistance. It’s strength, weldability and formability ensure its utility in many applications.||Building products, vehicle parts, furniture, agricultural, medical and electronic applications.||Structural Extrusions|
|6063||One of the best alloys for anodizing applications this grade is often called the architectural alloy. It has comparatively high corrosion resistance, tensile properties and great finish characteristics.||Exterior and interior architectural applications and trim, appliance parts, kitchen equipment, moldings, extruded trim for homes and store fixtures, medical equipment and more.||Architectural Extrusions|
|6463||Commonly called a decorative alloy. This grade is medium strength and can be chemically brightened.||Shop fittings and trims, kitchen, bathroom and automotive trims.||Architectural Extrusions with "Brite" finishes.|
