6061 Aluminum Plate - The Perfect Mold Making Material
Dec 04, 2017

Now the most common used molds are made of medium thick aluminum plate 6061. Compared to the previous cast mold, aluminum plate 6061 made mold can work for long time, and will not shedding. The initial cost of aluminum mold making is slightly higher, but the useful life of aluminum molds is much higher than other materials. Meanwhile, aluminum scrap can be recuperated for hedging, making it more cost effective.

6061 T6 aluminum plate, mainly contains two elements of magnesium and silicon. 6061 aluminum plate is a heat treatment of aluminum forging products, so 6061 aluminum plate is suitable for corrosion resistance, high oxidation resistance applications. 6061 aluminum plate usability is good, the interface features are excellent, is easy to coating, good workability. 6061 aluminum plate can be used on low-pressure weapons and aircraft joints. General characteristics of 6061 aluminum plate: excellent interface characteristics, easy coating, high strength, good usability, excellent processing performance, good corrosion resistance, high toughness and deformation after processing, the color film is easy, the oxidation effect is very good. 6061 alumium plate is a widely used aluminum plate. 

Now some require harder aluminum plate to make molds, such as 2 series and 7 series aluminum plate. But 2series and 7 series aluminum plate has high hardness, and is hard to cut, so the cost is relatively high. So more people use 6 series aluminum plate.
