Product Details

6 Series Aluminium Sheet Introduction

The 6000 series aluminum alloy mainly contains two elements, magnesium and silicon, so it concentrates the advantages of the 4000 series and the 5000 series, and is a cold-treated aluminum forging product. Suitable for applications requiring high resistance to corrosion and oxidation. Good usability, excellent interface characteristics, easy coating, and good workability.

Features: Mainly contains magnesium and silicon. Mg2Si is the main strengthening phase and is currently the most widely used alloy. 6063, 6061 are used most, other 6082, 6160, 6125, 6262, 6060, 6005, 6463. 6063, 6060, and 6463 have relatively low strength in the 6 series. 6262, 6005, 6082, and 6061 have relatively high strength in the 6 series.

Medium strength, good corrosion resistance, good welding performance, good process performance (easy to extrude and form), good oxidation and coloring performance.

6061 aluminum is a heat-strengthened alloy with good formability, weldability, machinability, and medium strength. It can still maintain good operability after annealing. The main alloying elements of 6061 aluminum are Magnesium and silicon form the Mg2Si phase. If it contains a certain amount of manganese and chromium, it can neutralize the bad effects of iron; sometimes a small amount of copper or zinc is added to increase the strength of the alloy without significantly reducing its corrosion resistance; there is a small amount of conductive materials In order to offset the adverse effects of titanium and iron on electrical conductivity; zirconium or titanium can refine the grain and control the recrystallized structure; in order to improve the machinability, lead and bismuth can be added. Mg2Si is solid-dissolved in aluminum, which makes the alloy have artificial age hardening function.

6061 (Unified Numbering System (UNS) designation A96061) is a precipitation-hardened aluminium alloy, containing magnesium and silicon as its major alloying elements. Originally called "Alloy 61S", it was developed in 1935. It has good mechanical properties, exhibits good weldability, and is very commonly extruded (second in popularity only to 6063). It is one of the most common alloys of aluminum for general-purpose use.

6061 aluminium alloy is a medium to high strength heat-treatable alloy with a strength higher than 6005A. It has very good corrosion resistance and very good weldability although reduced strength in the weld zone. It has medium fatigue strength. It has good cold formability in the temper T4, but limited formability in T6 temper. Not suitable for very complex cross sections.

It is commonly available in pre-tempered grades such as 6061-O (annealed), tempered grades such as 6061-T6 (solutionized and artificially aged) and 6061-T651 (solutionized, stress-relieved stretched and artificially aged).

Typical Applications

Motorboats,Aircraft structures,Shipbuilding,Truck bodies,Pylons & towers,Rail coaches
