ASTM B209 Aircraft Grade 2mm 3mm 5mm T6 T651 6061 Aluminum Sheet


T6 T651 6061 Aluminum Sheet – Generally selected where welding or brazing is required, or for its particularly high corrosion resistance in all tempers. Formability is excellent in 0 temper, good in T4. Machining is more difficult than with other machining alloys; it is particularly gummy in 0 condition, fair in hard tempers. Corrosion resistance and appearance after anodizing are highest of screw machine alloys, though properties are generally lower. Applications include railway car components, bridge components, pipe fittings, wheels and various transportation end uses. 6262 – Has excellent machinability, is readily welded, and has good corrosion resistance. Formability is fair in T6 temper, difficult in T9. Bright, smooth finish is easy to obtain.

T6 T651 6061 Aluminum Sheet Aluminum is a heat treatable 6000 series aluminum alloy with magnesium and silicon as its main alloying elements. It is one of the most versatile alloys and offers a wide range of mechanical properties. With medium to high strength, good toughness and a good surface finish, it maintains most of the good qualities of aluminum. Welded by all methods and can be furnace brazed. T6 has an ultimate tensile strength of at least 42,000 psi, yield strength of at least 35,000 psi and ultimate shear strength of 27,000 psi.
