COMMERCIAL ALUMINIUM ALLOY
6026 aluminium alloy is suitable for anodising to provide both hard anodised and decorative finishes. The alloy was recently developed to meet the requirements of the European Environmental Protection Directives and offers excellent corrosion resistance. The alloy is highly suited to extensive machining particularly in use on high speed automatic lathes. 6026 does not contain Tin (Sn) as an alloying element as its inclusion can cause cracking in machine parts when subjected to stress and elevated temperature.
6026 aluminium alloy can be used in place of alloys 6082 and 6061, especially where finished parts require extensive machining on high speed automatic lathes.
Typical commercial applications for 6026 aluminium alloy include:
- Electrical parts, machined components
- Automotive components
- Braking systems
- Hot forging
- Suitable for anodising
- For use on high speed automatic lathes
- Excellent corrosion resistance
- Meets EU Environmental Directive
