6061-t6 material properties

6061-T6 is aluminum, magnesium, silicon alloy, gold, heat treatment corrosion resistant alloy. The strength and corrosion resistance are different, and the uniformity is good. 6061 T6 high strength, high hardness (up to HV 90 degrees or more), good processing effect, good oxidation effect. No sand hole, good flatness. Improve processing efficiency and reduce material cost.

Widely used in trucks, towers, ships, trams, railway vehicles, furniture machinery parts, precision machining, mold, and other requirements of a certain strength (85-110 degrees), high corrosion resistance of industrial structural parts.

Characteristics of 6061-T6 alloy

1. Lower the melting point and facilitate casting.

2. Add some special features. For example aluminum alloy, aluminum alloy is made of pure aluminum with some alloying elements, such as aluminum-manganese alloy, aluminum-copper alloy, aluminum-copper-magnesium series duralumin, aluminum-zinc-magnesium-copper series super-hard aluminum alloy. Aluminum alloy has better physical and mechanical properties than pure aluminum: easy processing, high durability, wide application range, good decorative effect, and rich colors.

3. The advantages of magnesium alloys are low density, high specific strength, high specific stiffness, strong shock resistance, and can withstand large impact loads; at the same time, they have good cutting and polishing performance, and are widely used in aerospace, instrumentation, transportation and other industrial sectors. important structural materials.

4. The hardness of the alloy is greater than the metal of which it is composed. For example aluminum alloy.


6061 T6

What does 6061 aluminum plate t6 mean?

6061 represents the alloy composition of the aluminum plate, and T6 is the heat treatment state of the aluminum plate, which determines the mechanical properties of the aluminum plate.

The common state of 6061 aluminum plate:

T6 – 6061 aluminum alloy is the most commonly used. In this state, the 6061 medium plates is hardened from the medium plate. After solution heat treatment, it does not need cold treatment and can be straightened and leveled, but it does not affect mechanical properties.

F is the free working state of 6061 aluminum alloy, suitable for special products with work hardening and heat treatment conditions. The generation period of the F state is very short, and the mechanical properties of the F state are not specified. Customers can according to their own needs f heat treatment, and production into the required state for use. The corresponding price is also the cheapest.

O – type tempering is the lowest strength product of 6061 aluminum alloy after full annealing. Suitable for 6061 aluminum alloy plate under 8.0 production cycle only second to T6 state.

Aluminum sheet plate standard export packing

  • The aluminum plate is paperclip or laminated to ensure that the surface of the aluminum plate is intact and free of scratches;
  • Plastic film ( HDPE, PVC, PE or PET etc ) protection or hard kraft paper wrapping is used to prevent moisture and rain to ensure that the aluminum plate is clean and free of dirt during transportation (each package has a moisture-proof desiccant to ensure the quality of our products in East China and South China, where there is more rain);
  • Installed with wooden brackets and reinforced with steel straps to avoid collision during transportation and to ensure the geometry of the aluminum plate remains unchanged;
  • For export products, we use wooden boxes and pallets with fumigation mark for packaging;
  • We can also pack according to other packaging requirements of customers;
