Aluminium Round Tube is a very versatile product. There is the usual strength/weight ratio strong point common to all our aluminium products along with its inherent resistance to corrosion. As well as the usual engineering applications, other examples of its use are telescope making, garden products, art work and mole-catching. Yes mole-catching. One of our customers makes his mole catching equipment using thin 6mm tube. Holy Moley.

Mill finish. This is an 'unfinished' product, which means there has been no post-manufacturing surface treatment and is simply the bare metal. You may find some light scratching caused by general warehousing and transport but there should be no deep gouges or deformation. If aesthetics is important in your end application, you may want to consider a finishing process such as painting, polishing or anodising.
