Aluminum Alloy 6061

96.62 Al | 0.28 Cu | 0.15 Mn | 0.7 Fe | 0.25 Zn | 0.6 Si | 0.025 Cr | 1.0 Mg | 0.15 Ti | "S" Weight Factor - 3.69

Summary: 6000 series – Alloys in this group contain silicon and magnesium in approximate proportions to form magnesium silicide, thus making them heat-treatable. Major alloy in this series is 6061, one of the most versatile of the heat-treatable alloys. Though less strong than most of the 2000 or 7000 alloys, the magnesium-silicon (or magnesium-silicide) alloys possess good formability and corrosion resistance, with medium strength. Alloys in this heat-treatable group may be formed in the T4 temper (solution heat-treated but not artificially aged) and then reach full T6 properties by artificial aging.
