Aluminum is offered in a variety of extrusions including square tubing. Aluminum square tubes are used for a wide variety of projects including machines parts, frames/trim, racks, construction, and ornamental projects.  It is also used when corrosion resistance is of utmost importance. Aluminum square tubing is lightweight and has a high relative strength.    

One of the most popular grades of aluminum square tubing is 6061 and 6063. Aluminum is a heat treatable alloy with magnesium and silicon as the main alloy.   Aluminum Square Tube is measured by taking the outer walls (which are the same size) and then the wall thickness.
