6061 T6 T651 T6511 Aluminum Flat Bar is an extruded popular aluminum product. Aluminum 6061 alloys are doubled the strength of aluminum 6063 alloys. Aluminum 6061 has an ultimate tensile strength of at least 42,000 psi (290 MPa) and yield strength of at least 35,000 psi (241 MPa). In thicknesses of 0.250 inch (6.35 mm) or less, it has elongation of 8% or more; in thicker sections, it has elongation of 10%. T651 temper has similar mechanical properties.
Features: excellent corrosion resistance and strong for its light weight.
Workable: Welds well with proper equipment. Easy to Drill, Machine, Saw and Punch.
Application: medical assemblies, aircraft construction, structural components, scaffolding, ship construction, transmission towers, truck trailers, machine parts, braces and bracketing applications.
