The Introduction to 6061 aluminum bar stock
6061 aluminum bar stock is a high-quality aluminum alloy product produced by heat treatment and pre-stretching. Although its strength cannot be compared with 2XXX series or 7XXX series, it has many characteristics of magnesium and silicon alloys, and 6061 aluminum bar stock has excellent processability and excellent welding characteristics. And electroplating, good corrosion resistance, high toughness and no deformation after processing, dense and defect-free materials, easy to polish, easy to color film, excellent oxidation effect, and other excellent features.

The element of 6061 aluminum bar stock
The main alloying elements of 6061 aluminum bar stock are magnesium and silicon, and form a Mg2Si phase. If 6061 aluminum bar stock  contains a certain amount of manganese and chromium, it can neutralize the bad effects of iron; sometimes a small amount of copper or zinc is added to increase the strength of the alloy without significantly reducing its corrosion resistance; there is still a small amount in the conductive material Copper to offset the adverse effects of titanium and iron on conductivity; zirconium or titanium can refine grains and control the recrystallization structure; in order to improve machinability, lead and bismuth can be added. Mg2Si is dissolved in aluminum to make the alloy have artificial aging hardening function. The main alloying elements in 6061 aluminum bar stock are magnesium and silicon, which have medium strength, good corrosion resistance, weldability, and good oxidation effect.
Typical use of 6061 aluminum bar stock
6061 aluminum bar stock requires a variety of industrial structural parts with certain strength, weldability and high corrosion resistance, such as manufacturing trucks, hitchhiking buildings, ships, trams, furniture, mechanical parts, precision processing, and a wide range of industrial materials.
