6061-T651 Aluminum Sheet
6061-T6 is one of the most commonly used 6000 series aluminum alloys. 6000 series aluminum sheets provided includes 6061 and 6082 series. More specifically, the 6061 series aluminum sheet is the representative product among this series. The main ingredient of this series aluminum sheet includes magnesium and silicium elements. It has the features of both 4000 and 5000 series.
The 6061 T6 aluminum tread plate has the highest corrosion resistance of all the aluminums that have been heat treated. It is an alloy that has been formed with silicon and magnesium. It has a lower strength than other comparable aluminums, but is still widely used. This is partly due to its corrosion resistance and partly due to its excellent mechanical properties. There are a variety of ways you can form 6061 aluminums, such as through machining and welding. The machinability rating of this alloy is 90 percent. It also has great joining capabilities. If needed, this product can be anodized or have other coatings applied.
The applications 6061 aluminum alloys are frequently used for include base plates, truck components, marine fittings, marine components, marine hardware, electrical connectors, electrical fittings and camera lens mounts. This is only a few of the wide array of applications this alloy is used for. It also has the capability to be used for heavy duty structures that need corrosion resistance and good weight-to-strength ratio.
Hot treating and cold working can also be used for 6061 alloys. When in the annealed state, cold working can be easily performed, creating an end product that is cut, stamped, drilled, deep drawn, bent or tapped. These can all be achieved using standard cold working methods.
When heat treating this alloy, thorough heating should be done at 990 degrees F, and then be water quenched. For precipitation hardening, the metal should be placed in 320 degrees F for 18 hours, air cooled, then placed in 350-degree F for eight hours, and then air cooled again.
