6061-t6 aluminum plate is a high quality aluminum alloy product produced by heat treatment pre-stretching process. It has good processing performance, excellent welding and electroplating performance, and has strong corrosion resistance. It is not easy to deform after processing. Easy to polish and good oxidation effect.
What does t6 in 6061-t6 aluminum plate stand for?
The common tempers of 6061 aluminum plates are O, T4, T6 and T651. O is an temper temper, suitable for processed products with the lowest strength after complete annealing. T4 is the natural aging temper after the solution heat treatment. It is suitable for products that are no longer cold processed (can be straightened and flattened, but do not affect the mechanical performance limit) after solution heat treatment. T6 is tempered by artificial aging after solution heat treatment. Applicable to products that are no longer cold-processed (can be straightened and leveled, but do not affect the mechanical performance limit) after solution heat treatment. TX51 is suitable for thick plates, rolled or cold-rolled bars and die forgings, forged rings or rolled rings that are stretched by a specified amount after solution heat treatment or cooling from a high-temperature forming process. These products are not straighten again.
The composition of 6061-t6 aluminum plate determines the performance
The 6061-t6 aluminum plate is the most used in the 6061 aluminum plate. From the perspective of its composition, the proportion of Mg and Si elements is relatively large, so the 6061-t6 aluminum plate has good anti-rust performance and strong hardness. Although its Mg content is not as high as that of 5083 aluminum plate, 6061 aluminum plate is a heat treatable aluminum plate, which is processed into T4 or T6 temper after quenching and rapid cooling at high temperature. The hardness will rise sharply. In practical applications such as die cutting and CNC panel, there will be relatively high strength. It contains a small amount of Cu, so its strength is higher than that of 6063 aluminum plate, and its quenching sensitivity is also higher than that of 6063 aluminum plate. It cannot be air-quenched after extrusion. It needs to be re-dissolved and quenched to achieve higher strength.
Application of 6061-t6 aluminum plate
6061-t6 aluminum plate is favored by the majority of users in the market due to its excellent performance advantages, and its typical application is for automotive aluminum plate. 6061 aluminum alloy is an aluminum sheet used for lightweight body products. 6061 aluminum plates can be used for automobile fenders, automobile hood outer panels, automobile doors, etc. It can be widely used in mobile phone card slots, buttons, computers, trolley cases, door panels, automobiles, molds, machinery and many other industries.
