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.
7075 is an aluminum alloy, with zinc as the primary alloying element. It is one of the strongest aluminum alloys comparable to many steels, and has good fatigue strength and average machinability. 7075 was specifically designed for aircraft frames because of its strength somewhat greater than steel while maintaining the light weight of aluminum.
Aluminum Cast Plate MIC-6 is a blend of the most desirable features of many individual metals and is known for its stability and consistency between plates. Because of its cast granular structure and stress relieving properties, it has superior flatness and dimensional tolerances on the thickness which makes it popular for tooling and base plates.
At 99% min aluminum, Aluminum 1100 is just one of several common aluminum alloys and is soft, low strength, is the commercially pure aluminum. It cannot be hardened by heat treatment and is very formable. 1100 is one of the widest used alloys, with excellent forming properties in annealed states and may be suitable for […]
This alloy is 20% stronger than 1100 because manganese has been added and has good strength and is light weight. 3003 aluminum is well-suited to outdoor and harsh environment applications due to its durability and corrosion resistance. It has excellent workability and is used for spinning and stamping applications.
5052 has the highest strength alloy of the non-heat treatable grades and offers high workability, strength, corrosion resistance, and it can be easily welded. It has good resistance to marine atmosphere and salt water corrosion. With excellent workability it can be easily drawn and formed into intricate shapes.
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.
Aluminum alloy 7050 has high strength at subzero temperatures. However, their strength can be reduced at high temperatures. 7050 is heat treatable so as to produce mechanical properties of high strength and toughness. It has very good resistance to stress corrosion cracking. Commonly used in the manufacture of aircraft and other structures.
