Popularly known as “the aircraft alloy”, 2024 has higher properties than 2011 or 2017 an is largely used for aircraft fittings. It is widely used for all types of threaded fasteners because of its relatively higher shear strength.
6061-T6511 is a screw machine alloy that has superior corrosion resistance and anodizing features and is one of the most commonly used aluminum alloys due to its numerous characteristics. It is generally selected where welding or brazing is to be performed and is also used extensively in forging applications.
6063 an aluminum alloy, with magnesium and silicon as the alloying elements, is the most common alloy used for aluminum extrusion. Heat treatable and weldable, 6063 allows complex shapes to be formed with very smooth surfaces for a variety of exterior and interior architectural applications.
