Anodised Aluminium Technical Data Sheet

Aluminium alloy 6063 is a medium strength alloy commonly referred to as an architectural alloy. It has good surface finish, high corrosion resistance is readily suited to welding and can be easily anodised.

Hedge is the only Aluminium Garden Edging product in the world that applies an ANODISED surface finish. Hedge aluminium garden edging has been designed for superior durability, resistant to moisture, salt and corrosive soil types.
