6063 VS 6061

6063 VS 6061

The main alloying elements of 6063 aluminum plate are magnesium and silicon, which have excellent processability, excellent weldability, extrusion and plating, good corrosion resistance, toughness, easy polishing, coating, and excellent anodizing effect. It is a typical extruded alloy, widely used in building profiles, irrigation pipes, pipes, rods, and profiles for vehicles, benches, furniture, elevators, fences, etc.

The main alloying elements of 6061 aluminum plate are magnesium and silicon, and form a Mg2Si phase. If it contains a certain amount of manganese and chromium, it can neutralize the bad effects of iron; sometimes a small amount of copper or zinc is added to increase the strength of the alloy without significantly reducing its corrosion resistance; there is still a small amount in the conductive material Copper to offset the adverse effects of titanium and iron on the conductivity; zirconium or titanium can refine the grain and control the recrystallization structure; in order to improve machinability, lead and bismuth can be added.

In Mg2Si, the Mg / Si ratio is 1.73. In the heat-treated state, Mg2Si is solid-melted in aluminum, so that the alloy has an artificial aging hardening function.

6061 Requires a variety of industrial structures with certain strength, weldability and high corrosion resistance, such as the manufacture of tubes, rods, profiles, trucks, towers, ships, trams, furniture, mechanical parts, precision machining Plate.

6063 VS 6061 generally has more alloy elements than 6063, so the material strength is higher.

6063 VS 6061 has the same production cost, but the application of 6061 is wider, the production process is more mature, and the price is lower than the 6063 aluminum plate of the same specification.
