6 series aluminum alloy is an alloy that mainly contained with magnesium and silicon elements, and it’s belongs to heat treatment strengthening aluminum alloy.
The alloy has the advantages of medium strength, high corrosion resistance, no stress corrosion cracking tendency, good weldability, unchanged corrosion resistance in welding zone, good formability and good processability. When the alloy contains with copper, the strength of the alloy is close to 2 Series aluminum alloy, and the technological performance is better than 2-Series aluminum alloy, but the corrosion resistance becomes poor, and the alloy has good forging performance. 6061 and 6063 alloys are the most widely used among the 6 series alloys. They have the best comprehensive properties. The main products are extruded profiles, which are the best extruded alloys. The alloys are widely used for building profiles. Here below is the common alloy and usage in 6 series aluminum.
