COMMERCIAL ALUMINIUM ALLOY (inc T651 Aluminium Plate)
One of the most versatile heat-treatable alloys, 6061 is an American alloy which is typically used in heavy duty structures. With medium to high strength the material offers a combination of medium to high strength with medium fatigue strength. When annealed, 6061 offers excellent formability and weldability and is readily disposed to furnace brazing.
The corrosion resistance of 6061 aluminium alloy is very good. We offer the material in sheet, extrusions and T651 plate.
Typical commercial applications for 6061 aluminium alloy include:
- Heavy duty structures
- Shipbuilding, motorboats
- Aircraft structures
- Pylons and towers
- Rail coaches and truck bodies
- Excellent weldability and formability
- Medium to high strength alloy
- Medium fatigue strength
- Very good corrosion resistance
We stock 6061 aluminium in sheet, extrusions and T651 plate. We welcome stock enquiries from both domestic and international customers.
