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.
5086 aluminum sheet is used for: boat hulls cabinets and panels equipment processing components hardware marine enclosures pressure vessels shipping drums vessel gangways5083 aluminum sheet Applications Shipbuilding, Pressure Vessels and General maritime fabricated products. require a weldable alloy of high to moderate strength, with good corrosion resistance. Commonly used in the manufacture of unfired, welded pressure vessels, marine, auto aircraft cryogenics, drilling rigs, TV towers, transportation equipment, and in missile components, drilling rigs, armour plate. Its high corrosion resistance, especially salt water corrosion resistance, makes it an excellent material for marine and processing applications. 5083 aluminum sheet performs well in extremely cold environments without becoming brittle and is a popular material for cryogenic equipment. It is easy to form, stamp and weld. 5083 has high resistance to corrosion, and is used in marine applications.
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.
