COMMERCIAL ALUMINIUM ALLOY
Offering the highest strength of all 6000 series alloys, 6082 is often referred to as a ‘structural alloy’. Used predominantly in high stressed applications such as bridges, cranes and roof structures, the alloy’s extruded finish is not as smooth as others found in the 6000 series so is not so aesthetically pleasing. In many applications, 6082 has replaced 6061 as a result of a number of factors including excellent corrosion resistance with good machinability.
Typical commercial applications for 6082 aluminium alloy include:
- Highly stressed applications
- Bridge construction, cranes, roof trusses
- Milk churns
- Ore skips
- Highest strength alloy in 6000 series
- Excellent corrosion resistance
- Good machinability
- Replaced 6061 in many applications
