Aluminum Square Tube is an extruded aluminum material with a very wide range of uses and applications. It has excellent corrosion resistance, good processability, and good machinability, and is trusted by customers in many industries. Its high strength-to-weight ratio makes it ideal for any application that requires lightweight components, from medical assemblies and aircraft manufacturing to structural components and OEM manufacturing where it provides high levels of performance.
As a widely used type of aluminum profile, extruded aluminum tubes have square, rectangular, and round shapes. Because of the special line feeling of the square, and the aluminum square tubes are square corners inside and outside, without welds, they are often used in modern buildings used as a decorative material. For example, stadiums with complex grooved stands, display cabinets used in shops, etc. So, why do people choose aluminum square tubes?
There are 5 advantages of aluminum square tubes:
Many people choose to use aluminum square tubing because of its ability to resist corrosion. Aluminum is corrosion-resistant because it naturally develops a protective layer on its surface. This self-protecting characteristic makes aluminium corrosion-resistant. Unless exposed to some substance or condition that destroys this protective oxide coating, the metal remains fully protected against corrosion. This means that aluminum square tubing will not rust or lose structural integrity over time, even in particularly harsh environments.
Another great advantage of using aluminum square tubing is its low weight compared to tubing made of other materials. Aluminum is only 1/3 the weight of steel, making it easier and more cost-effective to use and transport. Even the lightest aluminum, it is a very strong metal and has a high Strength-to-Weight Ratio. This property permits the design and construction of strong, lightweight structures that are particularly advantageous for anything that moves-space vehicles and aircraft as well as all types of land- and water-borne vehicles. Light weight contributes to low handling and shipping costs, whatever the application.
Smooth aluminum is highly reflective of the electromagnetic spectrum, from radio waves through visible light and on into the infrared and thermal range. It bounces away about 80% of the visible light and 90% of the radiant heat striking its surface. The high reflectivity gives aluminum a decorative appearance. When used in ceiling decoration materials, the aluminum square tube can evenly reflect light and make the room bright.
The fact that aluminum is nontoxic was discovered in the early days of the industry. It is this characteristic that permits the metal to be used in cooking utensils without any harmful effects on the body. In addition, aluminum has no special smell, so there is no need to worry about releasing toxic gases when using aluminum square pipes as decoration materials.
Aluminum is one of the most versatile metals and can be extruded into various shapes and sizes to suit specific needs. Through the extrusion process, complex aluminum square tube shapes are created to suit the most unique applications. In traditional ceiling decoration, as long as people look up, the threading pipes in the house will be exposed to the line of sight, which makes the decoration space very unsightly, and it is very easy to cause safety hazards. And if it is decorated with an aluminum square ceiling, it can take advantage of the hollow characteristics of the pipe to arrange various wire pipes, which is beautiful and at the same time very safe, fireproof, and waterproof.
Due to their attractive appearance together with high corrosion resistance and low maintenance requirements, aluminum square tubes have led to extensive use in buildings of all types. In addition to an extensive selection of aluminum tubes, CHAL also offers a wide range of aluminum sheets/plates, circles, foil, strips, coils, and wire. Regardless of your demand, we will provide specific high-quality aluminum products that suit your needs.
