Cold Drawn Aluminium Tube
L116 is a cold drawn aluminium tube product which has high corrosion resistance with slightly higher strength than 1050a.
L116 aluminium tube is based on the aluminium alloy material designation 1200; the alloy also boasts high thermal conductivity and reflectivity although this is not quite as high as 1050. L116 has a 99% minimum requirement for aluminium content and yet is still classed as a non heat-treatable commercially pure aluminium.
L116 aluminium tubes offer very good weldability and are easily joined. With very good atmospheric corrosion resistance, the alloy has high thermal conductivity properties.
