Aluminum Flat Bar Stock | Use & Application
We carry a huge stock of extruded aluminum bars in all sizes and lengths for nearly any project. Our extruded aluminum flat bars and flat metal strips are the perfect addition to any plan. Aluminum flat bars are one of the most versatile extrusions, and can be used for a wide range of projects across industries. What makes the aluminum flat bar a great choice for such a variety of plans is its flat surface and rectangular face, which can be customized to the exact size and length that fits your needs.
One of the most common applications for the aluminum flat bar is for frame construction
. For this application, the bars are simply cut to just the right length, then welded or drilled into place for the framework. For construction purposes in particular, a framework made from aluminum flat bar is the right option because of its ability to hold a great deal of weight. Another popular application for the aluminum flat bar is for building support. Whether being used for ladder hangers, support braces, ductwork, overhead doors, or gate latches, aluminum flat bars are a go-to choice for this environment providing unmatched strength, durability, and corrosion resistance. Finally, aluminum flat bars are frequently used among industrial artists that specialize in large-scale artwork such as statues. Extruded aluminum bars are best for this application because they are easy to shape, but become incredibly durable following the forging process.

Aluminum Flat Bar Stock Grade
Eagle Aluminum proudly offers aluminum flat bars in a number of different grades to best suit your project. Some of the most common grades available to choose from include:
6061 grade aluminum is among the most commonly used grades, as it is highly versatile. Some of the characteristics of this grade of aluminum that make it an attractive choice include its resistance to corrosion, malleability, as well as its overall strength and durability. 6061 is also highly machinable, and performs at a high level during processes including tapping, drilling, bending, and saw cutting.
Another popular choice for aluminum flat bars, 7075 grade utilizes zinc as the primary alloying agent. The 7075 alloy offers incredible strength, and it is highly resistant to corrosion. With an impressive strength to weight ratio, 7075 is also commonly chosen because of its polishability, increasing its value for more cosmetic applications.
2024 grade aluminum flat bar is another option available, and features the trademark characteristics of strength and fatigue resistance. Though less resistant to corrosion, 2024 grade can be anodized to increase its corrosion resistance.
Characteristics and Quality of Aluminum Flat Bar Stock
The extruded aluminum bars we carry feature a number of characteristics to ensure your project is completed to the highest quality. What sets aluminum flat bar apart from other options is the incredible strength-to-weight ratio you get. Though weighing in at only ⅓ the weight of steel, aluminum can be forged to be just as strong as steel, and in some cases even stronger. Not only is aluminum incredibly strong, it is also unmatched in durability. Even when put through some of the harshest conditions on earth, aluminum flat bar is able to resist corrosion and hold up over time thanks to its natural protective oxide outer layer. In addition to boasting strength and durability, many choose aluminum extrusions for their projects because of its malleability. Aluminum flat bar is easy to work with, able to be shaped to fit many different applications.
A final quality that makes aluminum flat bar an attractive choice for plans across industries is that it is easily recycled, unlike other metals. This characteristic means that you can build responsibly in a way that is better for the environment.
