5086 vs 6061 aluminum

6061 aluminum is an aluminum-magnesium-silicon alloy product, and is a high-quality aluminum alloy made by heat treatment and pre-stretching process. 5086 aluminum is a 5-series alloy and is one of the key products of 5-series aluminum sheet, and it is also the core enterprise of aluminum processing in Henan Province— —The main product of Mingtai Aluminum’s foreign trade market.

5086 vs 6061 aluminum temper

There are T4, T6, T651 in 6061 temper. Among them, the alloy of T651 is stretched on the basis of T6 state. It is more suitable for processing and forming. 5086 can be produced and processed in tempers H12, H14, H16, H18, H19, H22, H24 , H26, H28, H32, H34,H36, H38, H111, H112, H114, H116, H321, these have superior corrosion resistance.

5086 vs 6061 aluminum sheet performance

6061 aluminum sheet can be strengthened by heat treatment; easy to polish and color; excellent thermoplasticity and processability; excellent oxidation effect. The main alloying elements of 5086 aluminum sheet are magnesium and silicon. The product has high corrosion resistance, good weldability, and medium strength. It is used in the manufacture of sheet metal parts for transportation vehicles and ships, instruments, hardware products and electrical enclosures. widely used. Compared with other aluminum sheet plate products, the corrosion resistance of 5086 is an important reason for its wide application. Therefore, 5086 is also called “rust-proof aluminum sheet plate”.

5086 vs 6061 aluminum uses

6061 aluminum sheet can be used for door frames, window frames, wall panels, containers, furniture, elevators, and decorative components of different colors such as airplanes, ships, light industry departments, and buildings. 5086 aluminum alloy is very suitable for welding structures-hulls and superstructures, tank cars, pressure vessels, mobile and fixed cryogenic vessels, and structures with high energy absorption requirements.

As we all know, Det Norske Veritas certification is a general license for the international aluminum sheet plate market. Mingtai Aluminum’s 5086 and 6061 have passed this certification, which is another world-class certification obtained by Mingtai Aluminum after the CCS (China Classification Society) certification. It will continue to promote the growth of Mingtai Aluminum’s foreign trade business. The company lays a solid foundation for in-depth development of the international aluminum sheet plate market.
