6063 alloy aluminum channel, also known as architectural aluminum channel, is an extruded aluminum channel with sharp, 90 degree angle corners inside and outside. This is in contrast to ‘Aluminum Association Standard Channels’, often furnished in 6061 alloy, that do not have 90 degree inside corners and are often used structurally instead of architecturally.
  • Also known as: aluminum C channel, architectural channel, aluminum U channel, sharp corner channel, aluminum trim channel.
  • Common uses: Architectural trim, framing, store fixtures, displays, glass and mirror projects, chairs, elevators, woodworking projects etc..
  • Workability: 6063 alloy has good acceptance of applied coatings such as anodized or painted finishes. 6063 channels are fairly easy to weld, and are relatively soft and easy to cut.  6063 alloy can be machined, but does not machine as well as harder alloys like 6061.
  • Temper - T5 (6063-T5). This temper and T-52 temper are the most common for 6063. T5 produces a more consistent finish when anodized.
  • Measurement calculations –   Width (A)  X  Legs (B)  X  Thickness (C)  X  Length. All measurements are outside dimensions.
  • Stock length sizes – Varies by product. 16′,  20′,  22′,  24′,  24’1″
  • Cut to length- Channels can be cut to smaller lengths and shipped Fed Ex. The saw blade removes an 1/8″ kerf for each cut.
