The 6061 T6 aluminum tread plate is made of an alloy that has been formed with silicon and magnesium. It has the highest corrosion resistance of all the aluminums that have been heat treated. Though it has a lower strength than other comparable aluminums, it is still widely used. This is partly due to its corrosion resistance and partly due to its excellent mechanical properties. The 6061 T6 aluminum tread plate is usually available in sizes between 3mm~9mm, 1220mm wide and up to 5000mm long.
6061 aluminum alloys are frequently used for base plates, truck components, marine fittings, marine components, marine hardware, electrical connectors, electrical fittings and camera lens mounts etc. This is only a few of the wide array of applications this alloy is used for. It also has the capability to be used for heavy duty structures that need corrosion resistance and good weight-to-strength ratio
There are a variety of ways you can form 6061 aluminums, such as through machining and welding. The machinability rating of this alloy is 90 percent. It also has great joining capabilities. If needed, this product also can be anodized or have other coatings applied.
Hot treating and cold working can also be used for 6061 alloys. When in the annealed state, cold working can be easily performed, creating an end product that is cut, stamped, drilled, deep drawn, bent or tapped. These can all be achieved using standard cold working methods.
When heat treating 6061 alloy, thorough heating should be done at 990 degrees F, and then be water quenched. For precipitation hardening, the metal should be placed in 320 degrees F for 18 hours, air cooled, then placed in 350 degree F for eight hours, and then air cooled again.
