6000 series aluminum sheet

6000 series aluminum6000 series aluminum is a quality aluminum-magnesium-silicon alloy product, which has good strength mechanical properties and excellent corrosion resistance. Because it requires higher level of technical equipment from manufacturers with production complex process. Therefore, its price is slightly more expensive than other series of aluminum sheets. In any case, 6000 series aluminum alloy is a promising alloy with wide range of applications.

Representative products of 6000 series aluminum alloy

6061 is one of the main products of 6000 series aluminum alloy. It not only mainly contains two elements of magnesium and silicon, but also combines the advantages of 4000 series and 5000 series. At the same time, 6000 aluminum sheet is a heat-treated aluminum forged product, which is suitable for applications requiring high corrosion resistance and oxidation. Besides, It also has good usability, easy coating and good workability.

Features of 6000 series aluminum sheet

The main alloy composition of the 6000 series aluminum sheet of magnesium and silicon elements. In addition, its processing performance is very good. 6000-grade aluminum can be adapted to cutting, stamping, bending, stretching, and other processing methods. In addition, it has the following advantages:

First of all, strong corrosion resistance. Since 6000 series aluminum contains magnesium and silicon, it has good corrosion resistance and can be widely used.

Secondly, high toughness and no deformation. 6000 series aluminum alloy sheet has excellent toughness, especially in deep drawing, bending, and other processing. Besides, its performance is stable after processing without deformation, which is very suitable for machining operations.

Third, dense structure and few defects. Due to the characteristics of the main alloying elements, 6000 series aluminum has a very compact structure during forming, and basically, no defects appear. Thus, it is particularly suitable for the production of thick plates.

The fourth point, 6000 series aluminum sheet has good welding and plating performance.

Finally, it is suitable for surface treatment. Common surface treatment processes such as polishing, coloring film, as well as, 6000-grade aluminum have a good performance in the oxidation processing.

Another side of 6000 series aluminum alloy

Nothing is perfect, the same as the 6000 series aluminum alloy. Although its comprehensive performance is very good, it is necessary to customize specific hardness for different industries in actual application. At the same time, the price of 6000-grade aluminum is slightly higher, but the high price also shows its quality. In general, it has good performance.



Application range of 6000 series aluminum alloy

In practice, the 6000 series aluminum alloy sheet is widely used in various industrial structural parts that require certain strength and high corrosion resistance. These uses include manufacturing trucks, tower buildings, ships, trams and railway vehicles. 6061 aluminum sheet and 6063 aluminum alloy are popular alloy products in the 6000 series. Moreover, they can also be used in the manufacture of mobile phone cases or battery covers.
