Overview and characteristics of 6 series aluminum alloy

6 series aluminum alloy is a kind of aluminum alloy with magnesium and silicon as main alloying elements and Mg2Si phase as strengthening phase. The alloy has the advantages of medium strength, high corrosion resistance, no stress corrosion cracking tendency, good welding performance, constant corrosion in the welding zone, good formability and process performance, etc. When the alloy contains copper, the strength of the alloy is close to that of the 2 series aluminum alloy, and the process performance is better than that of the 2 series aluminum alloy, but the corrosion resistance is worse, and the alloy has good forging performance. The most widely used 6 series of alloy is 6061 and 6063 alloy, they have the best comprehensive performance, the main products for extrusion profiles, is the best extrusion alloy, the alloy is widely used as building profiles.

The current production of 6 series of aluminum alloy grades: 6005, 6060, 6061, 6063, 6082, 6201, 6262, 6463, 6A02, the following details for you to introduce their respective uses.

6 series aluminum alloy main uses

6005 extruded profiles and pipes are used for structural parts requiring higher strength than 6063 alloy, such as ladders, TV antennas and other 6009 car body boards

6010 Sheet: Automobile body

6061 requires all kinds of industrial structures with certain strength, weldability and high corrosion resistance, such as tubes, rods, shapes and plates used in the manufacture of trucks, tower buildings, ships, trolleys, furniture, machinery parts, precision machining, etc

Industrial profiles, building profiles, irrigation pipes and extrusion materials for vehicles, benches, furniture, fences, etc

Extruded materials and pipes for heavy duty welded structures and the automotive industry

6101 bus with high strength rod, electric conductor and heat dissipation equipment

6151 is used for die forging crankshaft parts, machine parts and production of rolled rings, which require good malleability, high strength and good corrosion resistance

6201 High strength conductive rod and wire

6205 thick plates, pedals and high impact resistant extruded parts

The 6262 requires high-stress threaded parts with corrosion resistance superior to 2011 and 2017 alloys

Extrusion structure of 6351 vehicles, water, oil and other pipelines

Building and appliance profiles, as well as brightly anodized automotive trim pieces

6A02 aircraft engine parts, forgings and die forgings of complex shape.
