Aluminium Extrusions at ASD

ASD offers a wide range of extruded aluminium products, including bar, angles, tube, channel, and special profiles. Lightweight and flexible, extruded aluminium possesses a uniquely high strength-to-weight ratio, making it the perfect solution for a number of complex design problems.

The high strength-to-weight ratio and corrosion resistance of extruded aluminium have led to its widespread application in aeronautical, marine, and automotive projects. Particularly, its corrosion resistance makes it a desirable material for architectural, marine, and military applications, as well as for use in cables and wires.

Our Range

At ASD, we stock aluminium extrusions in grades 6063 and 6082, allowing us to comprehensively service customers aluminium extrusion requirements along with our associated value-added services. Our range includes round bar, square bar, tees, hollow section, channels, angles, and flat bar.

6082 aluminium is the highest strength alloy in the 6000 series due to the addition of manganese. It is considered a “structural alloy” because of its use in high-stress applications, including cranes, trusses, and bridges. In many instances, 6082 has replaced alloy 6061. The alloy also has very good corrosion resistance, though its surface finish isn’t as smooth or aesthetic as other 6000 series alloys.

Hero extrusions

Typical applications for 6082 include:

  • Transport
  • Trusses
  • Bridges
  • Trailer profiles

6063 aluminium often referred to as an architectural alloy, is commonly used in more complex extrusions with medium strength. The alloy offers a good, aesthetic surface finish along with a high level of corrosion resistance. It is also more easily welded and anodised.

Typical applications for 6063 include:

  • Doors
  • Window frames
  • Shop fittings
  • Architectural applications
  • Roofs
  • Sign frames
  • Furniture

Custom Processing and Bespoke Extrusions

At ASD we also process aluminium extrusions to meet the specific requirements of our customers. Our robust supply chain enables us to efficiently supply bespoke aluminium extrusions, providing significant advantages in creating complex cross-sections and economically manufacturing parts that are metres in length.

By leveraging the specialised expertise within ASD’s supply chain, customers can reduce costs and improve efficiency, helping them stay competitive in their markets.
