Aluminum 6063 Introduction
Dec 14, 2017

①6063 is a representative of the extrusion aluminum alloy, its intensity is lower than 6061. The extrusion is good, 6063 can be used for the profile of the complex cross-section shape, corrosion resistance and surface treatment are good.

6063 is a low alloyed Al-Mg-Si series high thermoplastics aluminum alloy.

6063 Features

1. Heat treatment to strengthen, high impact toughness, the lack of insensitivity.

2. Excellent thermoplastics,high-speed extrusion into complex structures. Thin-walled. Hollow various profiles or forging into complex structural forgings, quenching temperature range, low sensitivity to quenching, extrusion and forging demolding, As long as the temperature is higher than the quenching temperature. That can be sprayed or water quenching method. Thin-walled parts (6 <3mm) can also be air-quenched.

3. Excellent weldability and corrosion resistance, no stress corrosion cracking tendency. Al-Mg-Si alloy is the only alloy that has not found any stress corrosion cracking in the heat-treatable aluminum alloy.

4. After processing the surface is very smooth, and easy anodizing and coloring. The disadvantage is that if parked at room temperature for some time after aging in aging, will have an adverse effect on the strength (parking effect).
