Similarities And Differences Between 6061 And 6063 Aluminum Sheet
Dec 11, 2017

6000 series aluminum sheet is Al-Mg-Si alloy. The typical 6000 series of aluminum sheet is 6061,6063,6082. The main elements are magnesium and silicon. The aluminum sheet can be heated treatment be strengthened (T4, T6), medium strength, high corrosion resistance, good welding performance, formability and good workmanship. At present, the mostly used aluminum sheet is 6061 and 6063 grades, the following highlights the similarities and differences between 6061 aluminum sheet and 6063 aluminum sheet:

The main elements of 6063 aluminum sheet are magnesium and silicon. 6063 aluminum sheet mainly in the form of sheet and profile. 6063 generally do more aluminum profile, with excellent processing performance, excellent weldability, extrusion and electroplating, good resistance Corrosion, toughness, easy to polish, to coating, to oxidation effect is excellent, is a typical extrusion alloy, widely used in building profiles, irrigation pipe, for vehicles, cradles, furniture, lifts, fences and other tubes, rods , Profile 6063 is generally used for building profiles.

The main elements of 6061 aluminum sheet are magnesium and silicon. 6061 aluminum sheet is mainly in the shape of aluminum sheet, generally T6, T4 and other states. 6061 aluminum sheet hardness is 95HB and more, is widely used in mechanical processing industry, the production can add a small amount of copper or zinc, in order to improve the strength of the alloy without significantly reducing its corrosion resistance; conductive materials also have a small amount of copper to offset the adverse effects of titanium and iron on the conductivity. In order to improve machinability, you can add lead and bismuth. 6061 requires a certain degree of strength, weldability, high corrosion resistance of industrial structures. 6061 aluminum requires a variety of industrial structural strength, weldability and high corrosion resistance, such as the manufacture of tubes, rods, profiles for trucks, tower buildings, ships, trams, furniture, machine parts, precision machining , Plate.
