The main alloying elements of 6063 aluminum alloy are magnesium and silicon. It has excellent machining performance, excellent weldability, extrudability, and electroplating performance, good corrosion resistance, toughness, easy polishing, coating, and excellent anodizing effect.
It is a typically extruded alloy widely used in construction profiles, irrigation pipes, pipes, poles and vehicle fences, furniture, elevators, fences, etc.
6063 is typically used to build contours.
The main alloying elements of 6061 aluminum alloy are magnesium and silicon, forming Mg2Si.
If it contains a certain amount of manganese and chromium, it can neutralize the adverse effects of iron; Sometimes, small amounts of copper or zinc are added to increase the strength of the alloy without significantly reducing its corrosion resistance.
There is also a small amount of copper in the conductive material to offset the adverse effect of titanium and iron on the conductivity, Or zirconium and titanium can refine the grain and control the recrystallized structure; Lead and bismuth may be added to improve machinability.
In Mg2Si, the Mg/Si ratio is 1.73. In the heat treatment state, Mg2Si is dissolved in aluminum, so that the alloy has the function of artificial aging hardening.
6061 Industrial structural parts are required to have a certain strength, weldability, and high corrosion resistance.
6061 requires a variety of industrial structures with a certain strength, weldability, and corrosion resistance, such as pipes, rods, profiles, and plates used in the manufacture of trucks, tower buildings, ships, trams, furniture, machine parts, precision machining, etc.
Generally, there are more alloying elements in 6061 than in 6063, so the material strength is higher.
