ALUMINIUM ALLOY DESIGNATIONS:

The aluminum industry has created a system using a four-digit numerical designation to identify wrought aluminum alloys.  The first digit indicates the major alloying element.  The second digit indicates whether there was a modification in the basic alloy.  The third and fourth digit indicates the specific alloy.   The following represent the various groups:

1XXX Aluminum 99% or greater
2XXX Copper - major alloying element
3XXX Manganese - major alloying element
5XXX Magnesium - major alloying element
6XXX Magnesium and silicon - major alloying elements
7XXX Zinc -major alloying element

5086 Aluminum Pipe

High strength magnesium alloyed aluminum primarily used in the marine industry.

6061 Aluminum Pipe

This magnesium and silicon alloyed aluminum product is a good all-purpose alloy.

6063 Aluminum Pipe

This alloy has excellent corrosion resistance and weld- ability.

5083 Aluminum Pipe

This alloy also has good weld ability characteristics for fabricating vessels
