6061 - T6 Extrusions

Aluminium alloy 6061 is a medium to high strength heat-treatable alloy with a strength higher than 6005A. It has very good corrosion resistance and very good weldability although reduced strength in the weld zone. It has medium fatigue strength. It has good cold formability in the temper T4, but limited formability in T6 temper. Not suitable for very complex cross sections.

Applications

Alloy 6061 is typically used for heavy duty structures in:
Rail coaches
Truck frames
Ship building
Bridges and Military bridges
Aerospace applications including helicopter rotor skins
Tube
Pylons and Towers
Transport
Boilermaking
