6061 Aluminum Sheet & Plate

6061 aluminum sheet is a very versatile aluminum sheet product with a wide range of applications. 6061 aluminum sheet is made from one of the most widely used heat treatable aluminum alloys. The steel sheet has excellent corrosion resistance, good workability and good workability. 6061 sheet applications include a wide variety of products ranging from medical components to aircraft structures to structural components. 6061 t6 aluminum sheet has a high strength-to-weight ratio, making it ideal for any application that requires lightweight parts.

6061 aluminum properties

The product's strong welding capabilities allow any welding method to be used. Annealing can be done, which will leave it in a condition ready for cold work. Any cold working method can be used for punching, drilling, bending, deep drawing, tapping and cutting.

When annealing this metal, it is recommended to place it at 775 degrees Fahrenheit for two to three hours, then cool down steadily at a rate of 50 degrees per hour until the temperature drops to 500 degrees Fahrenheit. Air cooling should then be allowed.

Other heat treatment methods that can be used include solution heat treatment, age precipitation heat treatment, and thermal working.

Applications for aluminum 6061 sheet include products ranging from medical components to aircraft structures to structural components. 6061 t6 aluminum sheet has a high strength-to-weight ratio, making it ideal for any application that requires lightweight parts.

Alloy 6061 coil and sheet is the most versatile heat treatable aluminum alloy. Although not as strong as most 2xxx and 7xxx alloys, 6061 aluminum offers a wide range of mechanical properties and corrosion resistance and can be manufactured by many common practices.

In the "O" temper or in the annealed state, 6061 alloy has good formability. In the T4 condition, rather vigorous shaping is possible; while in the T6 condition, properties can be obtained by artificial aging.


6061 aluminum plate is commonly used in three states: T6, F, O

first. The T6 state is the most used 6061 aluminum alloy. The 6061 medium plate is quenched in this state—medium plate slicing—stretching machine—aging treatment—sawing machine—polishing—packaging. en tire production cycle is about 10 days. No cold working is required after solution heat treatment, and it can be straightened and leveled without affecting mechanical properties.

second. The F temper is the free machining state of 6061 aluminum alloy and is suitable for special products with work hardening and heat treatment conditions during forming. The production cycle of F status is very short: medium and heavy plate slicing - sawing machine - polishing (or no polishing, according to customer requirements) - packaging, the whole process is arranged smoothly, and it can be shipped within 3 days. The mechanical properties of the F state are not specified, and customers can choose according to their needs. The F temper is then heat treated and used in the desired condition. The corresponding price is also the cheapest.

fourth. The O temper is the lowest strength work product of 6061 aluminum alloy that has been fully annealed. It is suitable for 6061 aluminum alloy sheet below 8.0. The production process is: cold-rolled product thickness - stretch-bending straightening cleaning - complete annealing - flying shear sheet (or stretch-bending and straightening finished product) - packaging and warehousing and a series of production, production The cycle is second only to the T6 state

6061 sheet metal specifications and applications

6061 aluminum and aluminum sheets are ideal for structural framing, aircraft, marine, auto parts, tool panels, construction applications, transportation equipment, mountain bikes, bridge railing components, and more, and are useful in welded structural applications.

It is because of the high strength, light weight and low density of 6061 aluminum that brands such as Schwinn Bicycles and Shimano Bicycles also use 6061 aluminum alloy for lightweight bicycle frames.

6061 sheet metal applications

6061 aluminum billets can also be made into aluminum tubes, aluminum bars, aluminum angles and other industrial profiles.

HWALU aluminum stock 6061 aluminum sheet, 0.250" to 16" thick, 48" to 96" wide, up to 240" long, available for immediate delivery.

6061 Aluminum Sheet/Sheet is available in full size and custom cut lengths.

One of the main benefits of choosing 6061 aluminum die plate is the versatility of the alloy. Ideal for electronics and agriculture, it can also be used in storage tanks, hydraulic cylinders, plumbing, construction, and even sporting goods.

6061 aluminum sheet application

6061 T6 aluminum sheet and related products are a cost-effective option and a popular choice for customers who want a versatile option that demonstrates excellent welding potential and desired formability.

Another advantage of using 6061 aluminum sheet is that it is resistant to corrosion - a major advantage if your product is regularly exposed to weather, humidity or extreme temperature changes.

Aluminum alloy 6061-T6 is probably the most common aluminum grade due to its good machinability and weldability.
