6061 aerospace aluminum sheet metal


  6061 aluminum sheet is not only the most commonly applied aluminum alloy, but a cost efficient aerospace aluminum sheet metal which is light, strong, and economical. Aerospace aluminum is a kind of ultra-high-strength deformed aluminum alloy, which is currently widely used in the aviation industry. It has good mechanical and processing properties, good plasticity after solution treatment, and good heat treatment strengthening effect. Generally, it has high strength and good toughness below 150°C (or even higher). As an ideal structural material, it has high strength, toughness, and various processing properties. For example, through hard oxidation, its hardness can reach above HRC55.

  6061 aluminum plate 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 series, it has many characteristics of magnesium and silicon alloys, and has excellent processing performance and excellent welding characteristics, good corrosion resistance, high toughness and no deformation after processing, compact material without defects and easy to polish, easy to color film, excellent oxidation effect and other excellent characteristics. Because 6061 aluminum sheet contains a low proportion of other metals, it can be shaped and treated to increase its strength and reduce its wind resistance. It can even be piped three times to reduce weight. On the whole, 6061 aluminum sheet is a very cost-effective aerospace aluminum sheet metal, mainly applied to light structures like aircraft elevators.
