6061 aluminum alloy
6061 is a precipitation-hardened aluminum alloy, containing magnesium and silicon as its major alloying elements. Originally called "Alloy 61S", it was developed in 1935.It has good mechanical properties, exhibits good weldability, and is very commonly extruded (second in popularity only to 6063).It is one of the most common alloys of aluminum for general-purpose use.
It is commonly available in pre-tempered grades such as 6061-O (annealed), tempered grades such as 6061-T6 (solutionized and artificially aged) and 6061-T651 (solutionized, stress-relieved stretched and artificially aged).
6061 aluminum usage:
construction of aircraft structures, such as wings and fuselages, more commonly in homebuilt aircraft than commercial or aircraft.
6061-T6 is used for:
bicycle frames and components.
many fly fishing reels.
the Pioneer plaque was made of this alloy.
the secondary chambers and baffle systems in firearm sound suppressors (primarily pistol suppressors for reduced weight and improved mechanical functionality)
The upper and lower receivers of many non mil-spec AR-15 rifle variants.
Many aluminum docks and gangways are constructed with 6061-T6 extrusions, and welded into place.
Material used in some ultra-high vacuum (UHV) chambers
Many parts for remote controlled model aircraft, notably helicopter rotor components.
