The strength of aluminium flat bar depends on a few factors, such as the alloy used, the thickness of the bar, and the type of temper. In general, aluminium alloys are known for their high strength-to-weight ratio, which means they are lightweight yet strong.
The most common alloy used for aluminium flat bar is 6061-T6, which has a yield strength of 45,000 psi and a tensile strength of 45,000 psi. 6063-T5 alloy is also commonly used, it has a yield strength of 30,000 psi and a tensile strength of 45,000 psi.
It’s important to note that the strength of aluminium flat bar decreases as the temperature increases. Therefore, in high-temperature applications, it may not be suitable. Additionally, aluminium flat bar should not be used in applications where it will be exposed to saltwater, as it can corrode quickly in those conditions.
It’s also important to consult with a professional engineer to ensure that the aluminium flat bar is suitable for the specific application and load-bearing requirements.
Strips of aluminium are used in a wide variety of construction and fabrication applications, including machinery parts, shelving and storage, furniture and transportation. A variety of grades of aluminium flat bar stock are available from our company, including 6063 and 6082.
About grade 6082:
There are several tools available for cutting aluminium flat bars, including circular saws, band saws, and hacksaws. To avoid bending or damaging your aluminium strip, you must select the correct blade and securely secure it with a clamp or vice.
Speciality Metals now offers architectural alloys and structural alloys for aluminium flat bars. Both alloys exhibit good corrosion resistance, and their strength is medium to high. A wide range of general fabrication applications, including shop fittings, frames, and road transportation, can benefit from the use of aluminium flat bars.
Due to the fact that we have approximately 100 different combinations of width and thickness on the shelf, there is a good chance that we will have the size you require.

Aluminium flat bar, especially of the 6082 grade, can be easily welded. The 6082 grade is known for its excellent weldability. In order to ensure a strong weld, it is essential to use the right welding technique and filler material. Aluminium is commonly welded using TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) or MIG (Metal Inert Gas) welding. To ensure a better and more consistent weld, it’s a good idea to clean the surface before welding to remove oxide layers or contaminants. For specific applications, it’s always best to consult a welding professional or specialist.
We recently published articles on TIG welding, which would answer this specific question in far greater detail.
