6061 T6

6061 T6 aluminum sheet

6061 aluminum sheet and plate has higher strength, good corrosion resistance and machine capability. Therefore 6061 aluminum alloy grade is available for all types of fabrication projects.

The general purpose 6061 aluminum sheet and plate is heat treatable. And it’s easy to weld and machine, but limited on form-ability.

Take 6061 T6 aluminum sheet as example. The sheet has smooth and mill finish surface, it’s not be polished. Moreover, it’s easy to machine, shear and drill. Customize thickness available according to clients requirements.

6061 Aluminum Sheet

6061 T6 aluminum sheet vs steel

The hardness of 6061 aluminum plate is not as good as that of steel. But in many cases its resistance to impact bending is better than steel. Beyond that, aluminum 6061 T6 is easily the strongest and toughest aluminum alloy. And aluminum is generally more resistant to corrosion than steel. Therefore, the aluminum plate in this state becomes the ideal material in most schemes.


What’s the difference between 6061 and 6063 aluminum?

Actually, 6061 aluminum and 6063 aluminum are very similar.  6061 aluminum and 6063 aluminum are similar in composition and mechanical properties. And they are both popular alloys which is widely used in extrusions for a variety of architectural, machinery and equipment.

6061 Aluminum

6061 aluminum applies on all kinds of applications ranging from electronics to welded assemblies.  It’s one of the most popular aluminum alloys.

6063 Aluminum

6063 aluminum is the first choice for architectural materials because of its excellent response to extrusion.

In addition, it’s easy to form into complex shapes, such as bars and tubes. And its resists corrosion more effectively than other 6000 series alloys due to it don’t contents copper in its elemental composition.

Although this alloy does not differ from 6061 aluminum in many ways, its lower strength and better corrosion resistance make 6063 aluminum a better choice for extrusion projects.
