The difference between 6063 and 6061 aluminum alloy

Home » Blog » The difference between 6063 and 6061 aluminum alloy

The main alloying elements of 6063 aluminum alloy are magnesium and silicon, which has excellent processability, excellent weldability, extrudability and electroplating property, good corrosion resistance, toughness, easy polishing, coating, and excellent anodic oxidation effect.

The difference between 6063 and 6061 aluminum alloy

The main alloying elements of 6063 aluminum alloy are magnesium and silicon, which has excellent processability, excellent weldability, extrudability and electroplating property, good corrosion resistance, toughness, easy polishing, coating, and excellent anodic oxidation effect. It is a typical extrusion alloy, widely used in construction profiles, irrigation pipes, pipes, rods, profiles for vehicles, benches, furniture, lifts, fences, etc. 6063 is generally used in construction profiles.

The main alloying elements of 6061 aluminum alloy are magnesium and silicon, and form Mg2Si phase. If it contains a certain amount of manganese and chromium, it can neutralize the bad effect of iron; sometimes a small amount of copper or zinc is added to improve the strength of the alloy without significantly reducing its corrosion resistance; there is also a small amount of conductive materials Copper to counteract the adverse effects of titanium and iron on conductivity; zirconium or titanium can refine grains and control recrystallization structure; in order to improve machinability, lead and bismuth can be added. In Mg2Si, the ratio of Mg/Si is 1.73. In the state of heat treatment, Mg2Si is solid-dissolved in aluminum, so that the alloy has the function of artificial age hardening.

6061 requires industrial structural parts with certain strength, weldability and high corrosion resistance. 6061 requires various industrial structures with certain strength, high weldability and corrosion resistance, such as pipes, rods, profiles, sheet.

In general, 6061 has more alloy elements than 6063, so the material strength is higher.
