2024 T3 aluminum sheet has same characteristics as tubing, however, the sheet is alclad for corrosion resistance. Alclad is a metallurgically bonded aluminum or aluminum alloy coating that is anodic to the core, thus electrolytically protecting the core against corrosion. Tensile strength 70,000 psi, yield strength 50,000 psi.
5083 aluminum sheet application: Due to its strength and temperature characteristics, 5083 aluminum plate is used in: pressure vessels truck, marine, underwater vehicles cryogenic equipment””
6061 aluminum sheet alloy is strong, easily machined, and weldable. Aluminum 6061 T6 alloys are doubled the strength of aluminum 6063 alloys. Aluminum 6061 has an ultimate tensile strength of at least 42,000 psi (290 MPa) and yield strength of at least 35,000 psi (241 MPa). In thicknesses of 0.250 inch (6.35 mm) or less, it has elongation of 8% or more; in thicker sections, it has elongation of 10%. T651 temper has similar mechanical properties. The famous Pioneer plaque was made of this particular alloy. Order 6061 Aluminum Sheets in 6061 Aluminum in small quantities and no minimums of all Aluminum 6061 at The Metal Store.
