Features and application of 6000 series aluminum profiles

- Feb 26, 2019-

The 6000 series aluminum profiles are the most widely used alloys. For the characteristics of the 6 series aluminum profiles, please see the following:

6063, 6061 used the most, other 6082, 6160, 6125, 6262, 6060, 6005, 6463.

6063, 6060, and 6463 are relatively low in the 6 series.

6262, 6005, 6082, 6061 are relatively strong in the 6 series.

Characteristics of 6000 series aluminum profiles: medium strength, good corrosion resistance, good welding performance, good process performance (easy extrusion), good oxidation and coloring performance.

Applications: Energy tools (eg, car luggage racks, doors, windows, body, heat sinks, compartment boxes).

6005 extruded profiles and tubes for structural parts requiring a height greater than 6063 alloy, such as ladders, TV antennas, etc.

6009 car body panels.

6010 sheet: car body.

6061 requires various industrial structures with certain strength, weldability and high corrosion resistance, such as tubes, rods, profiles, etc. for the manufacture of trucks, tower buildings, ships, trams, furniture, mechanical parts, precision machining, etc. Plate.

6063 architectural profiles, irrigation pipes and extruded materials for vehicles, stands, furniture, fences, etc.

6066 forgings and welded structural extrusion materials.

6070 heavy-duty welded construction and extruded materials and pipes for the automotive industry.

6101 High-strength bars, electric conductors and radiator materials for buses.

6151 is used for die forging crankshaft parts, machine parts and production rolling rings for both good forgeability, high strength and good corrosion resistance.

6201 high-strength conductive bar and wire.

6205 thick plates, pedals and high impact resistant extrusions.

6262 requires threaded high stress parts that are superior to the 2011 and 2017 alloys.

6351 extruded structural parts of vehicles, water, oil and other pipelines.

6463 construction and various appliance profiles, as well as automotive decorative parts with a bright surface after anodizing.

6A02 aircraft engine parts, complex forgings and die forgings.
