Industry standard 6061 using silicon and magnesium alloying elements to provide light, cost-competitive structures in the T6 heat-treated condition (normally achieved by placing the whole fabrication in a heat-treatment furnace).

The 6061 alloy is very suitable for use in hydro-formed shapes due to its high ductility, and can also be used in conjunction with butted profiles subject to design parameters.

6061 is available as hydroformed and/or butted tubing for OEM customers only.
