6XXX series aluminum main alloying elements is magnesium and silicon, with moderate strength, good corrosion resistance, weldability, is widely used in various industrial abrasive structure requires a certain strength.
6061 aluminum plate after heat treatment pre-stretching process, although its strength can not be compared with the 2XXX and 7XXX Department, but its more magnesium and silicon , it’s has good processing performance, excellent welding characteristics. And its plating, corrosion resistance, high toughness and deformation after processing, the material defect-free and easy to compact polishing, color film is easily oxidized with excellent results.
With the development of the market, currently in the US and European markets do superhard aluminum has replaced steel mold. 6061 aluminum sheet in the process of making the abrasive cutting steel more than six times faster, significantly reducing the processing time of the mold.
In addition, as well as unique processing of aluminum density, light weight advantages 6061 aluminum pipe, produced relatively low inertia mold, applied in the production process, the deceleration are easier, can reduce the loss of machines and molds. It has been widely used in injection molding, blow molding, low pressure molding, rubber mold, such as different mold industry, 80% of the product.
