6061 T6 Features

1. The melting point of 6061-T6 alloy is low, which is convenient for casting.

2. 6061 T6 Aluminium Alloy has added some special properties. For example: aluminum alloy, aluminum alloy is made of pure aluminum by adding some alloying elements, such as aluminum-manganese alloy, aluminum-copper alloy, aluminum-copper-magnesium series hard aluminum alloy, aluminum-zinc-magnesium-copper series super-hard aluminum alloy. Aluminum alloy has better physical and mechanical properties than pure aluminum: easy processing, high durability, wide application range, good decorative effect, and rich colors.

3. The advantages of 6061 T6 Aluminium alloy are low density, high specific strength, high specific stiffness, strong shock resistance, and can withstand large impact loads; at the same time, it has good cutting and polishing performance, and is suitable for aerospace, instrumentation, transportation, etc. Important structural material for the industrial sector.

4. The hardness of 6061-T6 alloy is greater than that of its constituent metals.

Because 6061 T6 aluminium alloy has extremely excellent hardness and material advantages. Therefore, its use is also widely recommended. For example, in addition to the aerospace and aviation we mentioned earlier, it is also used in places with high welding requirements and lightweight requirements, such as various industrial structural parts, truck link screws, ship panels, ship linings , All kinds of sophisticated lathe materials. There are also some high-end uses such as aerospace, aviation, military, equipment, furniture and household appliances.
