Table aluminium alloys

The table below compares the properties of the commonly used alloys in the aerospace industry that we have in our standard range. The relative production speed, price, and achievable tolerances of the different alloys are compared with 6063. These values are an indication. Ultimately, the profile’s form and dimensions determine which alloys are possible and what the final price of the product will be.
