6061 aluminum coil introduction?

6061 Aluminum coil is made of one of the most versatile of all aluminum alloys. 6061 Aluminum coil is the alloy of choice for all-purpose applications. 6061 Aluminum coil is an aluminum-silicon-magnesium alloy, strengthened by precipitation hardening. This alloy has medium strength, formability, weldability, machinability, and corrosion resistance.

 6061 aluminum coil performance advantages:

1. 6 series aluminum coil has strong corrosion resistance and no tendency to stress corrosion cracking.

2. The 6 series aluminum coil has excellent welding performance, and the corrosion performance in the welding area remains unchanged.

3. Cutting is not easy to deform.

4. The addition of Cu to the 6 series aluminum coil not only improves the plasticity of the alloy during hot working but also increases the heat treatment strengthening effect.
