1060 aluminum sheet is pretty similar to 1050 aluminum alloy with more than 0.1% of aluminum by weight. Both 1050 and 1060 aluminium sheet of Huawei AL, lives up to ISO standards, but they cover different ASTM standards. 1060 aluminium sheet contains 0.05% cooper, thus, its conductivity is 55%. Besides, 1060 aluminium sheet is relatively low strength, essentially pure aluminium alloy with many different tempers, such as O (annealed), H12, H14, H16, H18, etc. what’s more, other aluminium sheet belonging to commercial pure wrought family are available, including 1050, 1070, 1100 and so on and so forth.

1060 aluminum sheet is noted for its excellent welding characteristics and formability by cold or hot working with commercial techniques. It cannot be hardened by heat treatment but only from cold working. Tempers H12, H14, H16 and H18 are determined by the amount of cold working imparted into the alloy. Moreover, 1060 aluminium sheet has good corrosion resistance as well as poor machine-ability, and its machine-ability can be improved in harder (cold working) tempers, such as H16 and H18. For its features above, 1060 aluminum sheet has a vast application, such as electric and chemical equipment, railroad tank cars, etc.

 

Features

1060 aluminum sheet Have good elongation and tensile strength, can satisfy completely the requirements of conventional processing (stamping, stretch) high formability. For industrial pure aluminium, high plasticity, corrosion resistance, electrical conductivity and thermal conductivity, but strength is low, heat treatment can not be improved machinability is bad; Gas welding, hydrogen welding and resistance welding, is not easy to brazing; Under various pressure processing and extension, bending.

Focusing on the R&D and production of hot-rolled 1060 aluminum sheet, 1060 aluminum sheet has high elongation, tensile strength, excellent electrical conductivity, high formability, and can meet the conventional processing requirements (stamping, drawing) requirements. Aluminum’s ultra-wide and ultra-thick 1060 aluminum sheet, with internal stress relief and no deformation in cutting, can reach 2650mm in width and 500mm in thickness, which is one of the few domestic manufacturers that can produce ultra-wide and ultra-thick aluminum sheet.

Machinability

The machinability of 1060 aluminum alloy is fair to poor, especially in the soft temper conditions. In the harder (cold worked) tempers such as H16 and H18 the machining characteristics are improved. Either carbide or high-speed steel tooling may be used and use of lubricants is recommended, although some cutting may be done dry.

Fabrication and Heat Treatment

Hardening

Aluminium / Aluminum 1060 alloy can be hardened only from cold working. Tempers H18, H16, H14 and H12 are determined based on the amount of cold working imparted to this alloy.

The heat treatment process

  • Fast annealing: the heating temperature is 350~410 degrees centigrade; with the effective thickness of the material, the heat preservation time is between 30 and 120min; cooling in air or water.
  • High temperature annealing: the heating temperature is 350~500 DEG C; if the finished thickness is not less than 6mm, the holding time is 10 ~ 30min, if the thickness is less than 6mm, heat until all the sheet is hot, cooling in the air.
  • Low temperature annealing: the heating temperature is 150~250 degrees centigrade; the heat preservation time is 2 ~ 3H; cooling in air or water
