Aluminum tube/pipe made of aluminum and aluminum alloys may not be the optimal tubing choice, but in many applications, they offer greater convenience and benefits.
- Strong. but lightweight construction. Due to the excellent strength-to-weight ratio of aluminum. Aluminum tubes made from aluminum and aluminum alloys are well positioned to replace steel tubes, which exhibit the same strength as steel tubes at only one-third the weight.
- Durability. Aluminum tubes have demonstrated resistance to a variety of environmental factors, including corrosive substances and ultraviolet radiation, in the applications in which they have been used.
- Flexibility and ease of fabrication. Because aluminum is available in a variety of alloys with different properties, aluminum tubes can be processed by several different manufacturing processes – including extrusion, drawing, welding, etc. – to suit the requirements of different applications.
- Non-combustible. Although aluminum melts at about 600 degrees Fahrenheit, it does not burn or release potentially harmful gases.
- Energy saving advantage. Due to the high electrical and thermal conductivity of aluminum tubes, aluminum tube piping for electrical and heat transfer systems exhibits extremely high heat transfer efficiency.
- Recyclability. Aluminum is highly recyclable, typically up to 90% recyclable.
Aluminum tubes export value to manufacturers and end users in a wide range of industries for their applications and use scenarios, such as excellent strength-to-weight ratio and excellent compression and support characteristics, more sophisticated welding technology compared to other metal materials, excellent bending properties of aluminum tubes, easy installation and transfer, etc.
