L54 Aluminium TubesL54

Cold Drawn, Hydraulically Tested Aluminium Tube

L54 is a hydraulically tested, cold drawn aluminium tube product which has high corrosion resistance with slightly higher strength than 1050a.

Based on aluminium alloy material designation 1200, the material also boasts high thermal conductivity and reflectivity although this is not quite as high as 1050. L54 has a 99% minimum requirement for aluminium content and yet is still classed as a non heat-treatable commercially pure aluminium.

Key Features:

L54 aluminium tubes are easily joined and have a high anodising capability. With very good weldability and very good resistance to atmospheric corrosive attack, the alloy also has high thermal conductivity.
