Aluminum Pipe is available in alloys 6061-T6, 6063-T52 and 6101-T61. Aluminum pipe is lightweight and offers good corrosion resistance, making it popular for outdoor railings, shelving and framing. Aluminum Pipe is available in Schedule 80 or 40, the most popular, and may be extruded. Our Aluminum Pipe is unthreaded to allow for welded connections.
What's the difference between pipe and tube?
"Pipes are passageways. Tubes are structural."
A pipe is generally measured by inside diameter or ID.(IE: You could roll a 2" golf ball through a 2" NOM pipe.) Tube, on the other hand, is measured by Outside Diameter. (So your golf ball would have the same O.D. as the 2" tube.)
Domestic material available.
