6061 aluminum sheet / coil

6061 aluminum sheet is the representative of 6000 series aluminum alloy, with medium strength, good corrosion resistance, weldability, and good oxidation effect. It is widely used in various industrial structural parts that require a certain strength and high corrosion resistance. At the same time, 6061 aluminum coil sheet is also a promising alloy.

What are the characteristics of 6061 aluminum sheet?

6061 aluminum sheet is a heat-treated and strengthenable aluminum alloy sheet with medium strength. It belongs to 6000 series (Al-Mg-Si) alloy aluminum sheet and has good weldability. At the same time, 6061 aluminum coil sheet has excellent aluminum-magnesium composition ratio and strong corrosion resistance. The hardness is 95HB (Brinell), easy to process and form, non-stick knife. Moreover, 6061 aluminum alloy is easy to paint . And it has excellent oxidation effect and high toughness. In addition, it is not easily deformed after processing.

Effect of different alloy elements on the properties of 6061 aluminum sheet

The main alloying elements of 6061 aluminum sheet are magnesium and silicon, which enhance the strength of the alloy and improve the plasticity and welding performance. Manganese and chromium can neutralize the destructive effect of iron on 6061 aluminum coil sheet. A small amount of copper or zinc can improve the strength of 6061 alloy without reducing its corrosion resistance. A small amount of copper to offset the adverse effects of titanium and iron on 6061 aluminum coil sheet conductivity and increase strength. Titanium can refine 6061 aluminum alloy grains and control the recrystallization structure. Overall, the addition of alloying elements greatly improves the performance of 6061 aluminum sheets.

Common temper of 6061 aluminum sheet T6, F, O, t651

6061 T6 temper aluminum sheet

The 6061 T6 temper is the most used in the 6061 aluminum sheet temper. 6061 medium-thick 6061 t6 aluminum sheet plate in this temper through quenching slicing, stretching, sawing machine, polishing, packaging and other processes. The entire production cycle is about 10 days.

6061 F temper aluminum sheet

6061 F temper is 6061 aluminum sheet free processing temper, suitable for special products in the process of hardening and heat treatment in the forming process. Besides, the F-temper production cycle is very short, and the corresponding price is also the cheapest.

6061 O temper aluminum sheet

The 6061 O temper is the processed product of 6061 aluminum coil after complete annealing to obtain the lowest strength. It is suitable for thin sheet below 6061 8.0. The production process is roughly cold rolling to the thickness of the finished product, followed by a series of production steps such as cleaning, complete annealing and slicing. The production cycle is second only to the T6 temper.

6061 T651 temper aluminum sheet

6061 T651 temper represents that taking a special process to eliminate the internal stress of the aluminum sheet. Due to heat and extrusion, the density of between the crystals is not uniform. For this reason, the energy stored in the 6061 t651 aluminum sheet cannot be completely released. Because the internal stress will cause the aluminum sheet to have bending, wave patterns and surface inequality problems. Therefore, it is necessary to quench and stretch to first release the internal stress of the 6061-t651 aluminum sheet.

6061 aluminum sheet coil applications

6061 aluminum sheet coil can be anodized and colored. The 6061 aluminum thick sheet plate is used in automatic machinery parts, precision machining and various mold manufacturing. At the same time, there are many other uses, such as manufacturing trucks, tower buildings, ships, trams, railway vehicles. And there are also many uses in automated mechanical parts, precision machining, mold manufacturing, electronics and precision instruments, SMT, PC board solder load With etc.
