Applications of 6000 series aluminum plates

6000 series aluminum sheet can be used in aircraft grade aluminum, camera parts, couplers, ship parts, hardware, electronic accessories and joints, valves and valve parts, ACP (aluminum composite panels ), etc. It can also be used in low-tension weapons and connectors in airplanes.

6060 aluminum sheet is an alloy in the wrought aluminum-magnesium-silicon family (6000 series aluminum sheet). It is much more closely related to the alloy 6063 than to 6061. The main difference between 6060 and 6063 is that the 6063 aluminum sheet has a slightly higher magnesium content. 6060 aluminum sheet can be formed by extrusion, forging, or rolling, but as a wrought alloy it is not used in casting. It cannot be work-hardened but is commonly heat-treated to produce tempers with a higher strength but lower ductility.

Description of 6060 aluminum sheet

6060 aluminum plate is one types of the 6 series aluminum plates

6060 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 6060 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.
