6061 is a heat-treatable hardenable alloy in the 6000 serie, which has good formability, weldability, machinability, and at the same time has moderate strength and maintains good workability after annealing.
6061-T651 is the main alloy of 6061 aleación. It is a high-quality aluminum alloy product produced by heat treatment and pre-stretching process. Although its strength cannot be compared with 2XXX series or 7XXX series, its magnesium and silicon alloys have many characteristics and have processability. Excellent, excellent welding characteristics and electroplating, good corrosion resistance, high toughness and no deformation after processing, dense material without defects and easy to polish, easy to color film, excellent oxidation effect and other excellent characteristics.
6061 aluminum plate is mainly used for decoration, packaging, construcción, transportation (for automobiles, subway vehicles, railway passenger cars, high-speed passenger cars), and other medium-sized machinery and daily packaging.
