Secure High Quality Aluminum from an Expert Alloy 6061-T6 Distributor

Too often companies make tradeoffs to accomplish their goals. When they need a lightweight metal, they trade durability. When they need strength, they trade flexibility. You don’t have to compromise when you use aluminum.

Aluminum balances the demands for lightweight, strong, and versatile metal. Your company can find the metal that fits your project at James Duva Inc. We offer alloy 6061-T6 flanges, fittings, piping, and plates.


Aluminum offers practical benefits for different applications. Its features allow companies to accomplish multiple goals at once. Among many other benefits, aluminum:

  • Weighs a third less than most other metals.
  • Conducts heat and reflects light.
  • Is non-toxic and maintains the purity and color of many products.
  • Is a non-magnetic metal.
  • Resists corrosion, resulting in reduced maintenance and a longer service life.
  • Has a tensile strength (PSI) of 38,000 and a yield strength (PSI) of 35,000.


Aluminum’s versatility makes it useful in a variety of industries. Petroleum and petrochemical companies employ its lightweight and cost-effective features. Food, drug, and beverage companies utilize its storage and conductive abilities. Other applications include:

  • Process piping and general fluid transmission
  • Temporary and portable piping
  • Heat transfer and cryogenic processes
  • Hydraulic pressure lines
  • Structural support
  • Architectural and ornamental design
