How many 6061 aluminum properties do you know?

6061 Aluminum Plate

6061 aluminum alloy as the main alloying elements of magnesium and silicon, with moderate strength, good corrosion resistance, weldability, oxidation is better. Widely used requires a certain strength and high corrosion resistance of various industrial structures, such as the manufacture of trucks, tower buildings, ships, trams, railway vehicles, furniture and so on.

6061, a cold finished aluminum wrought product, for against corrosion, oxidation and demanding applications. Good use, the interface characteristics of good and easy coating, good processability. It can be used for low pressure ammunition and aerospace connectors.

Since there are so many application of 6061 aluminum alloy,How many 6061 aluminum properties do you know?

6061 aluminum mechanical properties:

Ultimate tensile strength: 124 MPa
Tensile yield strength: 55.2 MPa
Elasticity: 68.9 GPa
Bending Ultimate Strength: 228 MPa
Bending Yield Strength: 103 MPa

6061 aluminum processing properties:

After heat-treated pre-stretching process (-T651) 6061  aluminum alloy , although its strength can not be compared with the 2XXX or 7XXX Department, but its magnesium alloy of silicon and more, with excellent processing performance, excellent welding characteristics and plating , good corrosion resistance, high toughness and processing after deformation, densification defect-free and easy to polishing, color film is easily oxidized with excellent results and other excellent features.

After a detailed introduction of Detect-Metals, I think you should very understand 6061 aluminum properties.
