Frequently asked questions

What are aluminium round bars used for?

Aluminium round bar has a variety of applications due to its strength-to-weight ratio, resistance to corrosion and versatility.
A few of the most common applications include:

• Construction: For building frames and structural uses.
• Transportation: In automotive, aircraft and marine components.
• Electrical: As conductors for overhead power lines.
• Machinery: In parts and components for its anti-corrosive nature.
• General Fabrication: For frameworks and architectural structures.

What grade are your aluminium round bars?

Our aluminium round bar is Grade 6082. This means it’s a mid-strength, corrosion resistant alloy that works perfectly for high-stress structural applications.

Can you bend aluminium round bar?

Yes, you can bend aluminium round bars, but it's important to consider several factors to ensure a successful bend without damaging the material. The ease of bending and the allowable bend radius largely depend on the thickness, diameter and specific alloy temper of the round bar.

For instance, Aluminium 6082 can be bent using standard metalworking equipment and techniques, such as press brakes, rollers or tube benders. This is due to its properties that allow for flexibility while maintaining strength.

The temper of the aluminium is also crucial. Aluminium alloys are available in various tempers, each with different hardness and flexibility levels. Softer tempers, like O (annealed) or H32, are more easily bent. In contrast, harder tempers, such as T6, are less flexible and may require specialised equipment or heating to achieve the desired bend.

If you're planning to bend grade 6082 aluminium round bars for a specific project, consulting with a metalworking professional or referring to the alloy's technical specifications is recommended. This will provide guidance on the allowable bend radii and methods for your specific material and application. Using proper equipment, tooling and techniques is crucial to achieve accurate and safe bends without causing cracking or other defects in the material.

Always test on a sample first, as aluminium can crack if bent too sharply, especially in harder tempers.
