6082 aluminium alloy

6082 aluminium alloy belongs to 6000 series (Al-Mg-Si) alloy, which can be strengthened by heat treatment. Due to its high magnesium content, 6082 aluminium sheet is also called Al-Mg alloy sheet. 6082 Al-Mg alloy has medium strength and good welding performance, good rust resistance and corrosion resistance. In fact, it is a lightweight and high-quality metal material.

6061 vs 6082 aluminium alloy

6061 and 6082 are both Al-Mg-Si alloys with good extrusion processing and forging performance. 6082 and 6061 have many similar mechanical properties and uses. These uses include the manufacture of aircraft landing pads, boats, building components, bicycles, auto parts, optical instruments, aluminum for rail vehicles, etc. In addition, the quenching sensitivity of 6082 is higher than that of 6061 aluminum sheetBesides, the corrosion resistance and welding performance of 6082 alloy are better. As a result, 6082 alloy is more used on shipboards and components like marine ships.

6082 aluminium alloy temper performance

The O and T4 temper of 6082 aluminium alloy are suitable for bending and forming occasions. And the T6 temper is suitable for scenarios where requires  good machinability. The 6082 T651 temper has a rust resistance strength that is about 20% higher than the same 6000 series products. The alloy in this state is suitable for manufacturing pipes and liquid containers that require high plasticity and corrosion resistance. The 6082 alloy usually has good processing characteristics and good anode reaction performance.
