aluminum 6061 plate is a good, general purpose aluminum alloy with magnesium and silicon as its alloying elements. 6061 has the highest resistance to corrosion of all the heat treated aluminums, but strength is lower.6061 has a wide range of mechianical properties and is readily machined and has good forming properties. 6061 welds easily, has excellent joining characteristics, and good acceptance to anodizing and other applied coatings. Eletrical conductivity is 40%of copper. 6061 shapes are available from sheet and plate at utilizing our high defintion plasma cutter.
aluminum 6061 plate is commonly used for structural components, frames, brackets,jigs,fixtures, base plates,machine parts, hydraulic valev bodies,worm gears, rectifier parts, fasteners, truck and marine components, marine fittings and handware, eletrical fittings and connectors etc. 6061 is used for heavy duty structures requireing good strength to weight ratio with good corrosion resistance.6061 is easily cold worked and formed in the annealed condition. cutting, stamping,bending.deep drawing, drilling, tapping, etc.
Aluminum 6061 plate is a heat treaded extruded alloy with medium to high strength. This versatile alloy is extremely popular due to its toughness and workability. Other key properties of Aluminum 6061 include:
Good surface finish
Ability to be anodized
Easy of weldability and brazability
Resistance to corrosion from seawater and atmospheric conditions
Suitable for hot forging
