Aluminum Sheet 6061 is a thin, flat shaped sheet.
6061 Aluminum sheet is the most versatile heat treatable aluminum alloy. After heat treatment, its strength is comparable to low carbon steel.
It was originally developed in 1935 and continues to appear in a wide range of general-purpose applications today. It is often used in applications utilizing welding or brazing.
Alloy 6061 aluminum coil and sheet is the most widely used heat treatable aluminum alloy. Although lower in strength than most 2xxx and 7xxx alloys, 6061 aluminum offers a wide range of mechanical properties and corrosion resistance and can be fabricated by many common methods. In the “O” tempered or annealed condition, 6061 alloy has good formability. In the T4 condition, rather severe molding is possible; however, in the T6 temper, these properties can be obtained by artificial aging.

In terms of corrosion resistance, the 6061 aluminum sheet is the highest in its class of heat-treated aluminum. This makes it suitable for heavy structures and marine environments. The product has a protective film that helps prevent corrosion. For further corrosion resistance, other coatings or anodization can be used.

The conductivity of alloy 6061 is 40% that of copper. It is often used in the electrical field in the form of electrical accessories and connectors.
6061 Alloy aluminum is highly weldable, for example using Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) or Metal Inert Gas (MIG).
Generally, the properties near the weld after welding are 6061-0, and the strength loss is about 80%. The material can be heat treated again to restore the -T4 or -T6 temper condition of the entire part.
After welding, the material can naturally age and regain some of its strength. Typical filler materials are 4043 or 5356. Good machinability in hard T4 and T6 tempered conditions. Machining in the annealed state is particularly difficult.
6061 Aluminum plate is commonly used in the manufacture of heavy duty structures where good corrosion resistance is required, truck and marine components, the manufacture of aircraft structures such as wings and fuselages, yacht construction, bicycle frames and components, and automotive parts such as wheel spacers.
6061 aluminum sheet is widely used in the following industries：
Our 6061 plate has a T651 temper, indicating that it has been solution heat treated followed by minimal stretching to reduce stress in the material. The material is then artificially aged to precipitate alloying elements out of the material, resulting in immediate maximum strength.
Aluminum sheet 6061 T6/T651 is versatile and typically used in aerospace, marine, electronic, decorative, mechanical and structural applications.

Huawei Aluminum, one of the largest aluminum product manufacturers in China, we strictly control the product quality, the 6061 aluminum sheet we provide, 6061-t6 aluminum sheet thickness tolerance is strictly controlled within +/- 10%.
The chemical composition and production process of 6061 and 5052 aluminum sheets are similar, but there are some differences.
5052 aluminum sheet and 6061 aluminum plate conform to modern production process standards, so many consumers are also very optimistic about its development trend.
Aluminum alloy 5052 belongs to the 5000 series aluminum plate. Its main element is magnesium. The magnesium content is between 3-5%, also known as aluminum-magnesium alloy. The main features are low density, high tensile strength and high elongation. The weight of aluminum-magnesium alloy in the same area is lower than that of other series. Therefore, it is often used in aviation, such as aircraft fuel tanks.
The main alloying elements in 6061 aluminum alloy are magnesium and silicon. Alloy 6061 has medium strength, good corrosion resistance, good weldability and good oxidation effect. 6061 has excellent processability, good corrosion resistance, high toughness, no deformation after processing, easy coloring and film formation, and excellent oxidation effect.

Many customers want to know the difference between 6061 t6 and aluminum 5052. 061 aluminum alloy can produce T5, T6, T651 and T6511 tempers. 5052 aluminum alloy is generally H112, H34, H32 and O state. Alloy 6061 is generally used in places with high strength, and alloy 5052 is generally used in places with low strength. The 5052 alloy pursues rust resistance, not strength. 5052 aluminum plate and 6061 aluminum plate are commonly used aluminum plates, but there are still very obvious differences.
Electronic aluminum foil is a kind of aluminum foil processed by a series of rolling, cleaning and cutting processes of high-purity aluminum ingots. It is a key raw material for the production of aluminum electrolytic capacitors.
5052 Aluminum Coil is an alloy composed of 2.5% magnesium and 0.25% chromium and is one of the most promising anti-rust aluminum materials
1050 aluminum strips belongs to the family of commercially pure malleable 1000 series alloys, and the aluminum is 99 pure. 5%, with excellent molding processing characteristics, high corrosion resistance, good electrical and thermal conductivity.
Aircraft Grade Aluminum Sheet Plate is an alloy that has undergone special treatment such as high-temperature oxidation, and can withstand thousands of degrees of high temperature or strong impact.
In general, aluminum sheet that is thicker than 6mm (0.25 inches) is considered to be thick.
Anodized aluminum sheet is an aluminum sheet placed in the corresponding electrolyte (such as sulfuric acid, chromic acid, oxalic acid, etc.) as an anode, and electrolysis is performed under specific conditions and the action of external current.
