Aluminium 1060 Bars are made of pure aluminium and consist of an aluminium alloy known as ‘1060 aluminium’. This alloy has high electrical conductivity, corrosion resistance, and weldability properties. It is also popular for its strength-to-weight ratio. Composition-wise, it contains 99% min aluminium, 0.25% max Fe, 0.20% max Cu, 0.05% max Mn and other impurities in trace amounts.
Aluminium 1060 Bars are popularly used in various industries due to their high formability, weldability, corrosion resistance and impressive mechanical properties. Its tensile strength is about 27-30 kg/mm2 and it has an elongation from 8% to 15%. The bar is commonly employed in automotive parts, home appliances, and many other applications where strength and lightness are required. It is also often used for decorative purposes in the construction sector due to its indefinite shape features that make it perfect.
