Performance and typical application of 6000 series aluminium sheet
- 2017-05-15 11:03 -
6000 series (Al-Mg-Si) alloy is the most important extrusion alloy in aluminium processing industry. At present, more than 70% of the world's aluminium extrusion processing material is produced with the use of 6000 series alloy.
The mass fraction of the 6000 series alloy is from 0.3% to 1.3% Si and from 0.35% to 1.4% Mg. In this limit, different countries have developed hundreds of different components of the alloy. There are 46 different types of alloy in the AA standard alloy sheet in the United States. In October 1980, the International Handbook of alloy composition was published in the paper. It is shown that there are 252 kinds of alloy with different composition of 6000 series alloy.
Through practical application and screening for dozens of years, 4 aluminium alloy , such as 6063, 6082, 6061, 6005 and its variants have occupied 6000 series alloy dominance (more than 80%), they cover the tensile strength B from 180Mpa to 360Mpa which is the entire range of all alloy.
6063 aluminium alloy is a typical representative of Al-Mg-Si series alloy, with excellent extrusion and weldability, which is the preferred material for building doors and windows. It is characterized by the high temperature and speed, the plastic properties and corrosion resistance, no stress corrosion tendency. In the welding, its corrosion resistance is not reduced. 6061 aluminium plate and 6082 aluminium sheet have a certain strength, weldability and corrosion resistance, which is used for various industrial structures, such as in the manufacture of truck, tower building, ships, trams, railway vehicles, containers, furniture etc. The strength of 6005 alloy is greater than that of 6063 Alloy, and is often used in the manufacture of ladders, TV antennas, etc.
In the automotive, shipbuilding and other high-end manufacturing industry, 6000 series has broad market prospects. Therefore, the 6000 series aluminium sheet is one of the key directions of the domestic aluminium processing industry.
At present, there are a lot of domestic enterprises to product 6000 series aluminium sheet, to the domestic aluminium processing leading enterprises - Ming Tai aluminium, for example, the production of the 6061 aluminuim sheet, 6082 aluminium sheet, and so on is the representative of the 6000 series of aluminium sheet products. Over the years, the 6000 series aluminium sheet of Mingtai aluminum with stable performance, the scale of production in the domestic aluminium sheet market occupies an important position. The successful development of the rail, ship and other high-end manufacturing field opened up a new world for the application of 6000 series aluminium sheet market.
