The advantages and disadvantages of 6061 aluminum alloy, what are the uses of aluminum 6061 sheet

Aluminum 6061 sheet is a heat-treated and strengthenable alloy, produced by heat-treatment pre-drawing process for high quality aluminum alloy products.

Advantages and disadvantages of 6061 aluminum alloy.

6061 t6 aluminum sheet

Although the strength of 6061 cannot be compared with 2-series or 7-series, its magnesium and silicon alloy has many characteristics, and has good processing performance, excellent welding characteristics and plating, good corrosion resistance, high toughness and no deformation after processing, dense material without defects and easy polishing, easy color film, good oxidation effect and other excellent characteristics.

6061 aluminum alloy has good plasticity and excellent corrosion resistance. Especially no stress corrosion cracking tendency, its excellent weldability, good corrosion resistance and cold processing, making 6061 aluminum plate is widely used, is a very promising alloy, can be applied to decoration, packaging, construction, transportation, electronics, aviation, aerospace, weapons and other industries.

6061 aluminum plate has good corrosion resistance, weldability, good oxidation effect. It can be anodized and colored, also can be painted with enamel, and is suitable for building decoration materials.

6061 has good formability, weldability, machinability, medium strength and good workability even after annealing. It can be used in various industrial structural parts requiring certain strength and high corrosion resistance, such as manufacturing trucks, tower buildings, ships, trams, railroad cars, furniture, etc.
