Barnshaws Aluminium Bending Information | Capability Capacity
The most commonly used aluminium alloy is 6063 T6. 6063 T6 has good formability weldability and corrosion resistance. 6082 is often used for architectural applications. This grade is highly corrosion resistant and has good formability. Greater formability for bending aluminium tubing can be achieved through an annealing process where aluminium can be brought to a zero temper.
