• aluminium 6060 versus 5754

    From ChP@21:1/5 to All on Wed Aug 29 19:56:49 2018
    Hello everybody,

    To make a folding kayak, I need aluminium tubes to build it.

    My problem is that I do not find the diameters I need (16 mm and 14 mm)
    in the same metal shade.

    I find 16 mm in 6060 T5 and 14 mm in 5754 H111.

    So for this application, what is the advantage/disadvantage of each shade ?

    The main point (I think) is the flexural strength.

    Thank you for answering
