what is the ampacity of this?

Asked by j2shortt April 26, 2020
1
Answer

Ampacity is not very widely used for hardware profiles, this is more for bus bar and wire rods used for electrical applications. It appears that this is a question on conductivity. Aluminium Alloy - 6063, Electrical Resistivity - 0.033 x10^-6 Ω .m, 52% IACS

Bob, I would not recommend this for a sliding door. At only 1/8" thick, the aluminum will likely bend between the supports.

Ideally you would need a carbide tipped saw blade for cutting aluminum. Always use clamps to the secure the aluminum and keep it straight, and cut slowly. You would need to use epoxy glue for metals and a water tight epoxy bond. You may need to sand the side needing glue to have a stronger bond. Please be advised epoxy glue contains fumes, always use outdoors, and take necessary safety measures to avoid inhaling and direct contact. Use protective gear. Adhesives such as acrylics and epoxies are best used to bond aluminum pieces together.

Use a self-etching primer (Home Depot has one: "Rust-Oleum Self Etching Grey Primer Spray"). I did this on an aluminum box I made to cover some heating pipes, and it worked really well - even with the constant heating and cooling from the pipes, the high-gloss wall paint I applied on top of the primer stayed on and lasted for years.

bending aluminum flat bar

I don't believe aluminum bar stock of any size would be suitable for this application, as a size beefy enough to take the mechanical stress and weight loads garden arches are subject to would be too expensive and beyond the ability of a homeowner to fabricate. Manufactures use either steel or aluminum tubing, sometimes designed for easy final assembly at home with Sheet-metal screws, or they construct them from welded steel rod.

I got the 1 IN. X 96 IN. ALUMINUM FLAT BAR WITH 1/8 IN. THICK for a small project. The flat bar is true to the stated dimensions and fully within the normal tolerance. While the aluminum bar is easy to cut and drill, it is still strong. The label doesn't state the exact material, but given how easy it is to work with, I assume it's 5052 aluminum. Overall very happy with this aluminum flat bar.

The aluminum flat bar arrived at my home in a very sturdy cardboard tube and without any damage whatsoever due to the excellent packaging. I was impressed with the care that was taken in preparing the bar for shipment. The bar itself was of excellent quality. The finish was smooth and consistent. It was of the correct dimensions in width, thickness and length. Overall, the bar was of the same or better quality that you would find at a dedicated metals supplier.

This aluminum stock is part of the great selection the Home Depot carries of “just the right size” steel and aluminum stock in angle, channel, bar, tube, rod and sheet, all cut and surface finished with obvious care, as well as an extensive stock of everything from rivets to sheet metal screws and the nuts and bolts you may need to fabricate and assemble whatever you are building or repairing. Selecting exactly what you need in their metal stock is a pleasure, because all of it is individually marked and barcoded as to size and material, making even self checkout quick and easy. As a homeowner and workshop hobbyist, this is my source number one when I have a project that for me, always means getting just the right materials I need to create or repair something in metal, all of it, "right now" in one place, so I can get started. While I prefer working with aluminum, like this nicely finished and ready to paint stock, the choice between steel and aluminum is usually decided for you by which of these two very different metals has the machining and fabricating characteristics you can work with, as well as which of them can better meet whatever the application you have in mind will demand of it. If it is something that will require high compression strength, stiffness, serious hardness, very high tensile strength, bendable in fabrication, and you can tolerate having to deburr most of your drill holes and cuts with a file or grinder, regardless of the blemishes it will create, it will be steel. Aluminum, if it will work for your project is much less punishing on you and your tools, and is safer to handle and work with. It drills easily with standard carbon steel drill bits. It also cuts and drills much cooler than steel, and with less resistance, and both cut lines and drilled holes need far less deburring. But it is somewhat brittle, which means it will not tolerate much if any reshaping unless very thin, which can complicate assembly. Aluminum has lower tensile strength and compression tolerance size for size than steel, but it is far easier to fabricate, which in the home workshop with limited tooling, often means you rough shape steel with an angle grinder and finish shape it with a bench or portable grinding wheel or a file, while the same stock in aluminum, if shaping is required, can often be managed with a carefully selected hand or powered hacksaw blade.

Used as metal trim for a furniture project. The stock bar comes pretty dinged up. Use 220 grit sand paper to removed the deeper scratches and dings and a green scotchbrite scouring pad to give it a brushed aluminum finish. Seems a little over priced. You can purchase Alexandria Moulding through THD which as the same specs for half the price but 3 weeks after placing the order, I am still waiting for the order to be processed and delivered.
