AL6061 is an aluminium alloy, with magnesium and silicon as the primary alloying elements. It is one of the most common alloys of aluminum for general-purpose use. Commonly available in pre-tempered grades such as 6061-O (annealed) as well as tempered grades such as 6061-T6 or 6061-T651. It can be compared with AL5052 (the highest strength alloy of the more non-heat-treatable grades) as well as with AL6063 which is similar in composition and mechanical properties. AL6061 main features include: heat-treatable, excellent machinability, excellent corrosion resistance, semi-smooth surface, lightweight, high-tensile strength. Commonly used in transportation components, recreation products, machinery and equipment, and consumer durables.
Extruded bars/rods from 6061 aluminum alloy are offered as part of our own branded (AVIATIONEU NEW ERA) product lines. They come in different cross sections such as round, rectangular or square. Competitively priced, they are sourced from quality producers, comply with ASTM specifications and offered as T6/T651 tempered in different dimensions.
AVIATIONEU NEW ERA 6061 Aluminum square/rectangular bars are produced by extrusion and are offered in T6 or T651 Tempers, in different dimensions in inches and cut to order lengths in feet (in increments of one foot) to meet application requirements. They comply with ASTM-B221 and AMS-QQ-A-200/8 specifications.
