What's the difference of 6061 and 6063 aluminum plate?

- May 31, 2018-

6061 6063 6082 are most common used alloys in 6000 series aluminum. The main alloy elements of 6000 series aluminum are magnesium and silicon, with moderate strength, good corrosion resistance and weldability, and good oxidation effect. It is often used in various industrial structures with high strength and corrosion resistance.


6061 and 6063 aluminum plate are the most commonly used alloys of the 6 series. The main difference is the difference of aluminum content, which is also different in the properties and uses of the alloy. 6061 aluminum plate is widely used. It can not only be applied in production, but also has many applications in automobile and mold manufacturing.


Because of the high content of the other alloy elements in the 6061 aluminum plate, it has stronger comprehensive performance, and it is often used in the field of space for both corrosion resistance and welding performance. 6063 aluminum sheet has good processability and is generally used in building material engineering.
