The differences of 7075 aluminum sheet, 6063 aluminum sheet and 6061 aluminum sheet
- 2017-03-10 10:03 -
According to the different aluminum alloy elements, aluminum sheet can be divided into different grades of alloy. Different aluminum alloy sheet has different application. Today, we explain the differences of 7075 aluminum sheet, 6063 aluminum sheet and 6061 aluminum sheet.

1. Alloy composition is different.
6061 aluminum sheets and 6063 aluminum sheets are the 6000 series aluminum sheet. 6000 series aluminum sheet is aluminum-magnesium- silicon alloy. The elements of 7075 aluminum alloy sheet are aluminum and zinc. The difference between 6061 aluminum sheet and 6063 aluminum sheet is more subtle. The silicon contents of 6061 range from 0.4 to 0.8, and the magnesium content ranges from 0.8 to 1.2. 6063 silicon contents in 0.2-0.6, magnesium content of 0.45-0.9. Because of the difference in silicon and magnesium, it is generally said that 6061 is better than the hardness of 6063. 6061 and 6063 also have great differences in tensile strength. In the case of annealing and quenching, the tensile strength of the 6061 is less than or equal to 150-290, and the 6063 is less than or equal to 135-240.
1.   The application of products are different
6061 aluminum sheet requires a certain strength, weldability and corrosion resistance of high industrial structure, such as the manufacture of the truck, tower building, ship, car, furniture, machinery parts, precision machining for tube, rod and sheet shaped material.
6063 aluminum sheets are used for building profiles, and irrigation pipe for vehicle, bench, furniture, fences etc.
7075 aluminum sheets are used in the manufacture of aircraft structures and other requirements of high strength, high corrosion resistance of high stress structural parts and mold manufacturing.
