Availability
Aluminum 6061 is stocked by 177 North American distributors and produced by 91 large
mills. Distributors will offer small quantity buys while mills will generally only sell large
quantities, with delivery times anywhere from 10 to 50 weeks depending on size and form
required

This material is stocked primarily in Flat Rolled Products by 131 distributors but is also
available to a lesser extent in Bar Products, Tubular Products, Structurals, Shapes, Piping
Components, Wire Products, Powder, Casting Products, and Fasteners.

Principal Design
Features

Probably the most commonly available, heat treatable aluminum
alloy.



Applications

Commonly used in the manufacture of heavy-duty structures requiring
good corrosion resistance, truck and marine components, railroad
cars, furniture, tank fittings, general structural and high pressure
applications, wire products, and in pipelines.



Machinability

Machinability in the harder T 4 and T6 tempers is good. It is notably
less easy to machine in the annealed temper.



Forming

Easily cold worked and formed in the annealed condition. Stamping,
bending, spinning, deep drawing are all readily accomplished using
standard methods.



Welding

The alloy has very good welding characteristics and may be welded by
all of the common welding techniques. Gas tungsten arc welding is
generally used for thin sections (less than 0.032") and gas metal arc
welding is used for heavier sections. Use alloy 4043 filler wire for best
results, although a decrease in T 6 properties will result.



Heat Treatment

Solution heat treat at 990 F for adequate time to allow for thorough
heating and then water quench. Precipitation hardening is done at
320 F for 18 hours and air cool, followed by 350 F for 8 hours and air
cooling.



Forging

The alloy is capable of being hot forged at temperatures in the range
of 900 F to 750 F.



Hot Working

Hot working may be done in the temperature range of 700 F to 500 F.



Cold Working

Cold working in the O temper condition is readily performed. The
alloy is notably less easy to cold form in the T 4 and T 6 tempers.



Annealing

Annealing should be done at 775 F for 2 to 3 hours followed by
controlled cooling at 50 f per hour down to 500 F, then air cool.



Aging

The aging precipitation heat treatment is done at 350 F for 8 hours
followed by air cooling. This produces the T6 temper.



Tempering

Not applicable.



Hardening

See "Aging".



Other Physical
Props

Electrical conductivity 40% of copper.



Other
Mechanical
Props

Shear strength for O temper is 12 ksi and for T 6 temper it is 30, ksi
