HM's selection of aluminum tube and aluminum pipe is everything you would expect from one of China's leading aluminum suppliers. Our aluminum pipe comes in both extruded and seamless forms, in popular alloys like 6061, 6063 and 6101. Our 6101 and 6063 seamless pipe products are especially valued in the electrical substation market.
"Pipes are passageways. Tubes are structural." A pipe is generally measured by inside diameter or ID. Tube, on the other hand, is measured by Outside Diameter.
