6060 aluminum plate

Features of 6063 Aluminum Plate:

6063 aluminum plate belongs to Al-Mg-Si alloy and has a wide range of applications. Especially in the construction industry, it is the most promising alloy. Good corrosion resistance, excellent weldability, good cold workability and medium strength. Mingtai Aluminum 6063 aluminum plate manufacturers are of high quality and low price.

6063 Aluminum Plate is a Low Alloyed Al-Mg-Si High Plasticity Alloy, Which Has Many properties :

1. Heat treatment strengthening, high impact toughness.
2. It has excellent thermoplasticity and can be extruded at high speed into a complex structure.Such as thin wall. Hollow various profiles or forged forgings with complex structure, It also has wide quenching temperature range, low quenching sensitivity, after extrusion and forging demoulding, As long as the temperature is higher than the quenching temperature. It can be quenched by spraying water or water. Thin-walled parts (6<3mm) can also be subjected to wind quenching. 3. Excellent welding performance and corrosion resistance, no tendency of stress corrosion cracking. Among heat-treated reinforced aluminum alloys, Al-Mg-Si alloy is the only alloy that has no stress corrosion cracking phenomenon. 4. The surface after processing is very smooth and easy to anodize and color. The disadvantage is that if it is aged at room temperature for a period of time after quenching, it will have an adverse effect on the strength (parking effect).

6063 aluminum plate

Use of 6060 Aluminum Plate:

Main uses: Aerospace fixtures, trucks, tower buildings, boats, pipelines and other areas of construction that require strength, weldability and corrosion resistance.

Use of 6063 Aluminum Plate:

The main alloying elements of 6063 aluminum plate are magnesium and silicon. It has excellent processing properties, excellent weldability, extrusion and plating properties, good corrosion resistance, toughness, easy polishing and coloring, and excellent anodizing effect.It is a typical extruded alloy. 6063 aluminum plate is widely used in building profiles, irrigation pipes, vehicles, gantry, furniture, lifts, etc. due to its good plasticity, moderate heat treatment strength, good welding performance and gorgeous color on the surface after anodizing. Pipes, rods and profiles for fences and the like.
