The characteristics and uses of 6061 aluminum rods

The main alloying elements of 6061 aluminum rods are magnesium and silicon, and form Mg2Si.
If it 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 improve
the strength of the alloy without significantly reducing its corrosion resistance; there is still a small amount of conductive material.
Copper to offset the adverse effects of titanium and iron on electrical conductivity; zirconium or titanium can refine grains and control
recrystallization structure; in order to improve machinability, lead and bismuth can be added. Mg2 Si is solid-dissolved in aluminum, which makes the alloy have artificial aging hardening function.
The main alloying elements in the 6061 aluminum rod are
magnesium and silicon, which have medium strength, good corrosion resistance, weldability, and good oxidation effect.
6061 aluminum rodis a high-quality aluminum alloy product produced by heat treatment and pre-stretching process.
6061 aluminum rod has excellent processing performance, excellent welding characteristics and electroplating properties, good corrosion
resistance, high toughness and no deformation after processing.
Dense and defect-free, easy to polish, easy to color film, excellent oxidation effect and other excellent characteristics.

The solution temperature of 6061 aluminum rod
The solution temperature of 6061 aluminum rod is: 530℃.
Aging treatment of 6061 aluminum rod
Rolled product: 160℃×18h;
Extrusion into forged products: 175℃×18h.
The international grade of 6061 aluminum rod becomes Alsi1mg0.8. According to this name, we can easily understand its main material, mainly al, si (silicon alloy reaches 1%) mg (magnesium alloy) reaches 0.8%. Yes, you It can be understood in this way that
this is an aluminum-magnesium-silicon-based aluminum rod. From the content ratio of the above metal elements, it can be seen that this alloy has certain corrosion resistance and rust resistance. Due to the silicon alloy, the 6061 aluminum rod also has both It
has a certain wear resistance, and the hardness is in the middle, which can meet the hardness requirements in the conventional industry. It can be said that it is more commonly used in mold manufacturing. At present, the commonly used model in China is:
