Delivery forms of 6061 and 6063 aluminum plates

At present, 6061 6063 aluminum plates are used in industrial production. The alloy element content of 6061 aluminium plate is more than that of 6063 Aluminium plate, so the strength of 6061 aluminium plate is higher than that of 6063 Aluminium plate.

6000 series aluminium plates are aluminium-magnesium-silicon alloys. The representative alloys are 6061, 6063 and 6082. They are aluminium alloys with magnesium and silicon as the main alloying elements. They can be strengthened by heat treatment (T4, T6). They have medium strength, high corrosion resistance, good weldability, good formability and workability. What is the difference between the two alloys of aluminium plates?

The main alloying elements of 6063 Aluminium sheet are magnesium and silicon, which are mainly delivered in the form of sheets and profiles. 6063 aluminium extrusion scrap is generally made of aluminium profiles. It has excellent processability, excellent solderability, extrusion and electroplating properties, good corrosion resistance, toughness, easy polishing, coating and excellent anodizing effect. It is a typical extrusion alloy, which is widely used in building profiles and irrigation pipes. Pipes, rods and profiles 6063 for vehicles, benches, furniture, elevators, fences, etc. are generally used for building profiles.

The main alloying elements of 6061 aluminium sheet plate cut to size is magnesium and silicon, which mainly exist in the shape of aluminium sheet, generally in the state of T6 and T4. The hardness of 6061 aluminium sheet is over 95. It is widely used in mechanical processing industry. A small amount of copper or zinc can be added in the production to improve the strength of the alloy without significantly reducing its corrosion resistance. There is also a small amount of copper in the conductive material to offset the conductivity of titanium and iron. Adverse effects of electrical properties; in order to improve the machinability, lead and bismuth can be added. 6061 requires industrial structural parts with certain strength, weldability and high corrosion resistance. 6061 aluminium sheet requires a certain strength, weldability and corrosion resistance of various industrial structures, such as manufacturing trucks, tower buildings, ships, trams, furniture, mechanical parts, precision processing and other pipes, rods, shapes, plates.
