Little knowledge about 6061 aluminum sheet

2022-10-18

6061 aluminum sheet is a kind of commonly used anti-rust aluminum. This alloy has high strength and high elongation, and can be used to manufacture aircraft fuel tanks, fuel pipes, etc. 6061 is an aviation aluminum alloy sheet with a wide range of applications. The main alloying elements of 6061 are magnesium and silicon, so four main functions are concentrated: excellent mechanical properties; good usability; good weldability; easy to process and form; good corrosion resistance (referring to artificial aging and natural after the expiration date).

Characteristics and application of 6061 aluminum sheet: 6061-t5 belongs to al-mg-si series of medium-hard aluminum alloy materials, 6061 heat treatment can not strengthen the machinability, and has the characteristics of medium strength, good wear resistance and high fatigue strength, good heat resistance In 6001, the corrosion resistance is the same as that of 6063. It has good forming performance, welding performance and excellent corrosion resistance. Electrical and electronic consumer goods packaging container mold parts, etc.

6061 aluminum sheet is a binary alloy composed of 60% al2o3 and 31% fe2o3. It has good forming performance and strong corrosion resistance. In the annealed state, the plasticity is still good, and the cold work hardening reduces the plasticity and forms a network structure.
