Alloy 6061 aluminum sheet are one of the most versatile and widely used of the heat treatable alloys. 6061 aluminum alloy has excellent corrosion resistance, excellent machinability, weldability, and medium strength. 6061 sheet applications include a wide variety of products from medical assemblies, aircraft construction to structural components. 6061 t6 aluminum sheet has a high strength to weight ratio making it ideal for any application where parts need to be light.
6061 aluminum alloy is a high-quality aluminum alloy product produced by heat treatment pre-stretching process. Although its strength cannot be compared with the 2XXX series or 7XXX series, its magnesium and silicon alloys have many characteristics, and have excellent processing properties and excellent welding characteristics. And electroplating, good corrosion resistance, high toughness and no deformation after processing, the material is dense and defect-free, easy to polish, easy to paint film, excellent oxidation effect and other excellent features.
6061 aluminum sheet offers good abilities in processability, toughness, corrosion resistance, has a good anodizing quality, is easy to covered with color film. 6061 aluminum sheet has a widely use in construction, shipbuilding, automobiles, furniture, mechanical components, mould, etc.
Here are five common temper in 6061 aluminum sheet
1. Heat treatment temper. 6061-T651 is a classic alloy which processed by heat treatment, it’s state is suitable for further processing.
2. F(free) temper. This temper of alloy has a changeable mechanical properties.
3. Annealed state. This state applies to the alloys that are fully annealed to obtain the lowest strength.
4. Work hardening temper. The strength of alloys can be enhance by work hardening.
5. Solution heat-treated temper. This temper is an unstable state, it also means he alloy is in a natural aging stage.
6061 aluminum sheet in different temper base on customer’s need, with a wide thickness range up to 600mm. Our aluminum sheet with thin thickness can be used in phone’s slot, computer stands and shell, while thick plate can be used in mould, wheel hub, decoration panel for bus, and chair and chassis parts for cars. In addition, extra-wide aluminum sheet with a maximum width up to 2650mm, is an ideal material for curtain wall.
- Process: Mill finish, not polished, smooth surface etc

6061 aluminum sheet properties by temper：
6061 bare aluminum sheet of Huawei aluminum can be processed into varieties of tempers, such as O, T4, T6, T651, etc. Among them, T4 and T6 are the most common ones for their good machanicability and weldability. Therefore, it is generally used industrial structure frame, which requires high anti-correction, such as truck, construction, ships, trolley bus, railway transit, etc.

6061 plate has a T651 temper, indicating it has been solution heat treated followed by a minimal stretching to reduce stresses in the material. The aluminum was then artificially aged to allow the alloying elements to precipitate out of the material giving our 6061-T651 aluminum plate immediate maximum strength
6061 ALUMINUM PLATE MECHANICAL PROPERTIES
Tensile Strength = 45 ksi; Yield Point = 40 ksi
Elongation % in 2″= 12%
Modulus of Elasticity = 10 ksi
Shear Strength = 30 ksi; Fatigue Limit = 14%
Brinell Hardness = 95
6061 ALUMINUM PLATE CHARACTERISTICS:
Welding = Excellent
Machining / Grinding = Good
Bending / Forming = Poor
Wear Resistance = Good
Corrosion Resistance = Good

6061-T651 Aluminum sheet
Our 6061 plate has T651 temper, indicating it has been solution heat treated followed by a minimal stretching to reduce stresses in the material. The material was then artificially aged to allow the alloying elements to precipitate out of the material, to give immediate maximum strength.
6061 aluminum sheet application:
It is widely used in mobile phone card slot (suitable for 5G mobile phone), buttons, computer bracket, computer shell and other 3C field, as well as pull rod case, aluminum furniture, door/door handle, SMT, PC board solder carrier and so on.(White surface / bright surface, no milling surface required, saving cost. )
6061 Medium and Thick Aluminum Plate Uses
It is widely used in underwear molds, shoe molds, precision machining, passenger car decorative plates / checker plates, automobile chassis protection parts, automobile four doors and two covers, automobile wheels, automobile seats, etc. (Internal stress is eliminated and cutting is not deformed.
1. The application of strips is widely used in various industries such as decoration, packaging, construction, transportation, electronics, aviation, aerospace, and weapons.
2. Aluminum materials for aerospace are used to make aircraft skins, fuselage frames, beams, rotors, propellers, fuel tanks, siding and landing gear pillars, as well as rocket forging rings and spaceship sidings. III. Aluminum materials for transportation are used for car body structure materials of automobiles, subway vehicles, railway passenger cars, high-speed passenger cars, doors and windows, shelves, automotive engine parts, air conditioners, radiators, body panels, wheels and ships.
4. Aluminum for packaging All aluminum cans cans are mainly made of sheet metal and foil as metal packaging materials to make cans, lids, bottles, barrels, and packaging foils. Widely used in packaging of beverages, food, cosmetics, medicines, cigarettes, industrial products, etc.
5. Aluminum for printing is mainly used for making PS plates. Aluminum-based PS plates are a new type of material for the printing industry, which are used for automatic plate making and printing.
6. Aluminum alloys for architectural decoration are mainly widely used in building frameworks, doors, windows, ceilings, decorative surfaces, etc. due to their good corrosion resistance, sufficient strength, excellent process performance and welding performance. Such as various architectural doors and windows, aluminum profiles for curtain walls, aluminum curtain wall panels, profiled panels, checkered panels, color coated aluminum panels, etc.
