In recent years, the 6061 aluminum plate has been widely used in the manufacturing industry. The characteristics and performance of the 6061 aluminum plate determine its role and development potential.
T6 and T651 are two states of the 6061 aluminum plate, and there are some differences between the two. Normally, T6 is easily deformed during processing, the internal stress is relatively large, and T651 is the most suitable state for processing. T651 has been stretched on the basis of T6, and the original large internal stress is partially eliminated. Magnesium and silicon are the two main alloying elements of the 6061 aluminum plate, forming the Mg2Si phase. Iron in the alloy has a certain bad effect, but it can be neutralized with a small amount of manganese and chromium. Copper or zinc can increase the strength of the 6061 aluminum alloy, and the corrosion resistance in the process will not be greatly reduced.
Titanium and iron have an adverse effect on electrical conductivity, but can be offset by a small amount of copper. The grains can be refined and recrystallized with zirconium or titanium; lead and niobium can improve the chip performance of the 6061 aluminum sheet. The 6061 aluminum alloy has medium strength, good corrosion resistance, outstanding weldability and good oxidation effect.
In addition to the above characteristics, 6061 aluminum alloy also has good toughness characteristics, it is not easy to be deformed after processing, and it is convenient to color the film.
Because the 6061 aluminum plate contains a small amount of copper, it has higher strength and better quenching sensitivity than the 6063 aluminum alloy. 6061 aluminum alloy can not be quenched during extrusion. If you want to obtain higher strength, you need to perform quenching aging and certain solution treatment. The corrosion resistance and good cold workability of 6061 aluminum plate determine the wide range of use and development of this material.
The 6061 aluminum sheet truck, marine and other industries are the most widely used and the prospects are very bright.
