Thin Wall Aluminum Tubing

This thin wall aluminum hex shape is produced in 6063-T5 aluminum alloy for construction of a larger honeycomb panel.  The profile is produced as a hex for strength and pattern assembly.  It is extruded at a nominal .030″ wall thickness for weight savings, and approximately 1.25″ cross sectional flat-to-flat.  These hex tubes are then cut into short pieces, approximately 1″ long and assembled into a honeycomb panel.  The honeycomb skeleton is the foundation on which a carbon fiber panel is built up for an extremely light weight and high strength aeronautical application. Thermoprene is confident we can help with any of your aluminum extrusion needs. Request a thin wall aluminum tubing quote today!
