6063 and 6061 are two specifications of aluminum alloys, and their compositions, uses and production processes are different.

The composition of 6063 is less than that of 6061, and the hardness is softer

Wall washer aluminum profiles are mostly 6063, and 6063 is mostly used for welding, processing, and the production process is more complicated than 6063.

The composition of aluminum profiles 6063 and 6061 is different

The composition of 6063 aluminum alloy contains 0.4%Si and 0.7%Mg, the strength of hard material is 295Mpa, and the strength of soft material is 111Mpa. .f150 aluminum body manufacturers - YuanfarAluminum

6061 aluminum alloy contains 0.6%Mg, 0.25%Cu, 1.0%Mg, 0.09%Cr, with a hard strength of 316Mpa and a soft strength of 127Mpa. It is used in corrosion-resistant structures, trucks, ships, vehicles, furniture, etc.

Aluminum profiles 6063 and 6061 have different uses

6063 aluminum alloy is widely used in wall washer aluminum profiles, linear light aluminum grooves, hard light bar aluminum grooves and other lighting frame products. In order to ensure that the wall washer aluminum profiles have high wind pressure resistance, assembly performance, corrosion resistance and Decorative performance, the requirements for the comprehensive performance of aluminum alloy profiles are much higher than the industrial profile standards.

6061 aluminum alloy is a high-quality aluminum alloy product produced by heat treatment and pre-stretching process, although its strength cannot be compared with 2XXX series or 7XXX library series. However, its magnesium and silicon alloys have many characteristics, such as processing performance, excellent welding characteristics and electroplating properties, good corrosion resistance, high toughness and no deformation after processing, dense and defect-free materials, easy to polish, easy to color film, and oxidation effect. and other excellent features.

The production process of aluminum profiles 6063 and 6061 is different

The T5 state of 6063 is air cooling and artificial aging. Small deformation coefficient, easy to control, general hardness,

The T6 process of 6061 is: solution treatment temperature of 530 degrees, artificial aging to make T6 state is 160 degrees for plates, bars and plates with a thickness of more than 80 degrees are 175 degrees, T6 state is water cooling, large deformation coefficient, not easy to control, high hardness .
