What is 6000 series aluminum alloy sheet?

6000 series aluminum sheets are aluminum alloys (Al-Mg-Si) with magnesium and silicon as the main alloying elements, which are heat-treated and strengthened aluminum sheets. The 6 series aluminum plate material has high corrosion resistance, good welding performance, no stress corrosion cracking tendency, and good formability. It is generally suitable for applications with high requirements for corrosion resistance and oxidation resistance. Such as ship accessories, aircraft parts, decoration and other scenes.

 Features of 6000 series aluminum plate

  1. It is a kind of aluminum sheet that can be forged with cold treatment. With this, it can be used in situations that have high demand for anti-corrosion and oxidation.
  2. As a result of its good availability and its connector with super features, it is easily coated and has good processability.
  3. Suitable for further processing of cladding wall and curtain wall
  4. 6000 aluminum has similar properties to 6063, medium strength. Good corrosion resistance and weldability.
  5. 6000 aluminum plate is light in weight, but has impact resistance.
  6. Mainly magnesium and silicon Mg2Si is the main strengthening phase, so it is a kind of non-ferrous metal structural material widely used in industry.
  7. It is a low-density high-strength aluminum alloy material widely used abroad.
  8. Good processability (easy to extrude).
  9. Good oxidation coloring properties.

Common models in 6000 series aluminum sheet alloy

The 6000 series is a representative series of aluminum plates. For manufacturers and processing plants, 6060, 6061, 6063, and 6082 are the four most commonly used products in the 6 series. The following HWALU introduces the 6060 aluminum plate to let you know more. Learn more about 6-series aluminum alloys.

6000 Series 6061 Aluminum Sheet

6061 aluminum plate is one types of the 6 series aluminum plates. 6061 aluminum alloy is an alloy in the wrought aluminum-magnesium-silicon series (6000 or 6xxx series). It is much more closely related to 6063 alloy than to 6061 alloy. The main difference between 6061 and 6063 is that 6063 has a slightly higher magnesium content. It can be formed by extrusion, forging or rolling, but as a wrought alloy, it is not used for casting. It cannot be work hardened, but is usually heat treated to produce a temper with higher strength but lower ductility.
