6061 aluminum plate is one of the 6000 series aluminum alloy products. It has medium strength characteristics and good corrosion resistance. It is widely used in the production and processing of industrial components and machinery for special needs. The field has this need.
The main elements of 6061 aluminum plate are magnesium and silicon. It is in the phase of Mg2Si. In addition to the two most basic constituent elements, some other elements can be added to the 6061 aluminum plate to improve other functions. The addition of elements allows the product to exhibit different performance, as follows:
Adding manganese and chromium elements can neutralize the oxidation of iron and improve its oxidation resistance;
Adding copper and zinc elements, zinc can increase the strength of the alloy without reducing the corrosion resistance of the product itself; copper can offset the adverse effects of titanium, iron and other elements on conductivity;
The addition of zirconium and titanium elements can refine the grains while controlling the recrystallized structure;
Adding lead and antimony elements can improve its machinability;
The addition of aluminum can make the aluminum plate itself have the function of artificial age hardening;
The 6091 aluminum plate is added with such low-density metal elements. The common features of these elements are: low density, high chemical activity, and stable compounds after reaction with oxygen, sulfur, carbon and halogen. Therefore, after adding these elements, the performance of the aluminum plate will be greatly improved.
