Yes, 31mm x 1.6mm aluminium tubing can be bent, but it requires careful consideration and proper equipment to avoid damaging the tubing. Aluminium is a relatively soft metal, which makes it more susceptible to deformation, such as bending, compared to other metals like steel. However, excessive force or improper technique can cause the tube to kink or fracture. To bend aluminium tubing without causing damage, a tube bending machine, which is designed specifically for this purpose, is typically used. It’s important to use the correct size of bending dies and followers for the specific diameter of the tubing to ensure a smooth, kink-free bend. Depending on the severity of the bend and the specific alloy of the aluminium, it may also be necessary to fill the tube with sand or another material to support the shape of the tube and prevent it from collapsing or wrinkling during the bending process. It’s crucial to proceed slowly and carefully, as making adjustments after the fact can be difficult and potentially damaging to the tube.
No, aluminium is not a magnetic material. This means that aluminium tubing will not be attracted to a magnet, nor will it become magnetised when exposed to a magnetic field. This is a characteristic of aluminium as a material, and it’s not influenced by the shape or size of the aluminium piece, including aluminium tubing. The non-magnetic properties of aluminium are useful in certain applications where magnetism could interfere with the functioning of a device or system, such as in electronic devices or scientific instruments. However, in applications where magnetism is beneficial or necessary, other materials would need to be considered.
Yes, aluminium tubing is resistant to corrosion. The natural properties of aluminium allow it to form a thin protective layer of aluminium oxide on its surface when exposed to air. This layer is highly resistant to various forms of corrosion. The aluminium oxide layer protects the underlying aluminium from contact with corrosive substances, helping to preserve the structural integrity and appearance of the aluminium. If this layer is scratched or damaged, it will re-form naturally in the presence of oxygen, continuing to provide protection.
However, it’s important to note that while aluminium is more resistant to corrosion than many metals, it is not completely immune. Certain environmental conditions, such as exposure to highly acidic or alkaline substances, can corrode aluminium. Salt water can also be a problem, leading to a specific type of corrosion known as galvanic corrosion. For this reason, in marine environments or other harsh conditions, aluminium may be further treated or coated to enhance its resistance to corrosion. Anodising, for example, is a common process that can increase the thickness of the oxide layer and provide additional protection.
