Commercial Alloy - 6061 T6 Extrusions
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.
|Alloy 6061 is typically used for heavy duty structures in:
|Bridges and Military bridges
|Aerospace applications including helicopter rotor skins
|Pylons and Towers
