Properties and Application of 6061 T6 Aluminum Sheet
Because of medium strength, good weldability and excellent anti-corrosion properties, 6061 t6 aluminum sheet is widely used in making boats,structural components, machines parts, tread plate,etc. Learn more!
6061 aluminum sheet has four common tempers: O, T4, T6 and T651. Among them, 6061-T6 aluminum sheet is more popular. What makes it so popular?
Properties of 6061-T6 Aluminum Sheet
In the case of 6061-T6 aluminum alloy, the “T6” indicates that it was solution heat-treated and artificially aged. It offers good finishing characteristics and responds well to anodizing, including color dye and hard coat. It is also weldable, but may lose some strength, which can be restored by re-heat-treating and artificially aging.
