6061 Aluminum Alloy (AL6061) Sheets/Plates

AL6061 is an aluminium alloy, with magnesium and silicon as its major alloying elements. When heat-treated, 6061 aluminum alloys are a great choice for general purpose uses and find many applications in structural materials, electronics, chemical equipment, and others. This alloy features high strength, good corrosion resistance, weldability, and machinability. It comes in different tempers  such as O (annealed), or tempered grades 6061-T4 and 6061-T6. Compared to AL2024, so-called aircraft aluminum, 2024 aluminum’s yield strength surpasses 6061 aluminum’s and generally selected if strength is a priority. Furthermore, AL2024 has a higher modulus of elasticity that 6061 aluminum bearing more stress without permanently changing shape and therefore a better choice for forming applications. In terms of machinability, 6061 aluminum is one of the most popular machining alloys and therefore often preferred if machining procedures are necessary for a project.

AL6061 sheets/plates are mostly offered as part of our own branded (AVIATIONEU NEW ERA) product lines. They are available in different tempers, pre-cut dimensions and specifications depending on the wanted order quantity and requirements.

AVIATIONEU NEW ERA 6061...

Aluminum alloy 6061 is the most commonly used aluminum alloy in the world due to its positive characteristics. It has magnesium and silicon as its main composition elements and is a cold-treated aluminum forging product with the advantages of 4000 Series and 5000 Series. Aluminum 6061, T6 or T651 tempered sheets exhibit above average corrosion resistance, excellent processability with no deformations, high strength, light weight, good weldability, and the ability to be heat treated for even higher strength, all at an affordable price. The difference between T6 and T651 tempers of an 6061 aluminum sheet is that the internal stress of T6 is relatively large and the processing will be deformed under normal circumstances; the suitable state for processing should be T651, which is based on T6 to stretch and eliminate internal stress. Both are typically used in aerospace, automotive, cameras, couplings, marine hardware, electrical components, decorative hardware, structural applications, pins, brakes, pistons, valves, and bicycle frames. Aluminum alloy 6061-T6 sheets from AVIATIONEU NEW ERA product lines are offered in different pre cut thicknesses, widths and lengths and they are PVC covered one side. They meet AMS 4027/ASTM B209 specifications.
