L63 is a high strength aluminium alloy tube product which retains its strength after heat treatment.

It is a 4 - 5% copper alloy and is supplied in the fully heat-treated condition (solution heat treated & artificially aged). L63 is used widely in the aerospace and defence sector in the manufacture of high strength components. L63 aluminium alloy tube is normally stocked in the T6 temper in pipe/tube form. The material offers very good machinability.

L63 aluminium tubes offer good strength after heat treatment and can be easily plated. The alloy can also be hard anodised.
