Aluminum Architectural Channel 6063-T52 has excellent corrosion resistance, good formability, and light weight. 6063 is more easily formable and much more corrosion resistant than 6061, but it is only about half as strong. 6063-T52 is typically used in applications where corrosion resistance and aesthetic are more important than strength, such as piping, furniture, and decorative applications.
