Aluminum 6061-T6; 6061-T651
Categories: Metal; Nonferrous Metal; Aluminum Alloy; 6000 Series Aluminum Alloy

Material Notes: General 6061 characteristics and uses: Excellent joining characteristics, good acceptance of applied coatings. Combines relatively high strength, good workability, and high resistance to corrosion; widely available. The T8 and T9 tempers offer better chipping characteristics over the T6 temper.

Applications: Aircraft fittings, camera lens mounts, couplings, marines fittings and hardware, electrical fittings and connectors, decorative or misc. hardware, hinge pins, magneto parts, brake pistons, hydraulic pistons, appliance fittings, valves and valve parts; bike frames.

Data points with the AA note have been provided by the Aluminum Association, Inc. and are NOT FOR DESIGN.

Composition Notes:
Composition information provided by the Aluminum Association and is not for design.
