What Is 6061 Aluminum Plate

Jul 13, 2018

The main alloying elements in 6061 alloy are magnesium and silicon, which have medium strength, good corrosion resistance, weldability and good oxidation effect. It is widely used in various industrial structural parts that require a certain strength and high antibacterial properties.

Alcoa 6061 has excellent processing properties, good corrosion resistance, high toughness, no deformation after processing, easy coloring film, and excellent oxidation effect.

It is an Al-Mg-Si alloy with medium strength, good plasticity and excellent corrosion resistance. In particular, it has a tendency to crack free from stress corrosion, has excellent weldability, good corrosion resistance and cold workability, and is a promising alloy with a wide range of applications. It can be anodized and colored, or it can be painted on the enamel, suitable for building decoration materials. It contains a small amount of Cu, so the strength is higher than 6063, but the quenching sensitivity is also higher than 6063. After quenching, wind quenching cannot be achieved, and re-solution treatment and quenching aging are required to obtain higher strength.
