- What are the properties of 1060 aluminum alloy?
Pure aluminum has low density (ρ=2.7g/cm3), about 1/3 of iron, low melting point (660℃), aluminum is face-centered cubic structure, so it has high plasticity (δ:32~40%, ψ:70~90%), easy to process, can be made into various profiles, plates, good corrosion resistance; But the strength of pure aluminum is very low, the annealing σ B value is about 8kgf/mm2, so it is not suitable for structural material.
1060 aluminum plate/coil, aluminum content of 99.6% or more, also known as pure aluminum plate, belongs to a commonly used series. With good elongation and tensile strength, it can fully meet the requirements of conventional processing (stamping, stretching) with high formability. It is industrial pure aluminum, with high plasticity, corrosion resistance, electrical conductivity and thermal conductivity, easy to bear all kinds of pressure processing and extension, bending.
- What is 6061 aluminum alloy?
6061 alloy is a kind of aluminum alloy with silicon and magnesium as the main alloying elements. It is a precipitated hardened aluminum alloy. Alloy 6061 is considered to be the most versatile aluminum grade alloy. It has strong mechanical properties and good weldability. The alloy is usually used for extrusion.
- Aluminum alloy 6061 chemical composition is as follows:
The maximum percentage of chromium (Cr) was 0.35% and the minimum was 0.04%
The maximum percentage of copper (Cu) was 0.4% and the minimum 0.15%
The maximum percentage of iron (Fe) is 0.7%
The percentage of magnesium (Mg) ranges from 0.8% to 1.2%
The percentage of silicon (Si) ranges from 0.4% to 0.8%
The maximum percentage of zinc (Zn) is 0.25%
The maximum percentage of titanium (Ti) is 0.15%
The maximum percentage of manganese (Mn) is 0.15%
The remaining 95.8 to 98.6 percent is aluminum (Al) with almost no impurities.
- What is the difference between aluminum alloy 1060 and 6061?
One, Alloy Difference:
1, 1060 aluminum plate is pure aluminum plate, the purity can reach more than 99.00%. The production process is relatively simple, which is the most commonly used series in conventional industry.
2, 6061 aluminum plate is aluminum alloy plate, the main alloy elements are magnesium and silicon, with moderate strength, good corrosion resistance, weldability, good oxidation effect, complex process.
Second, The Purpose
1, 1060 aluminum plate is widely used in the strength of the product is not high. Products are often used in signboards, billboards, building exterior decoration, bus body, high-rise and factory wall decoration, kitchen sink, lamp holder, fan blade, electronic parts, chemical instruments, sheet processing parts, welding parts, heat exchanger, clock surface and plate, kitchenware, decoration, reflective appliances, etc.
2, 6061 aluminum plate requires a certain strength, weldability and high corrosion resistance of all kinds of industrial structural parts, such as manufacturing trucks, ships, trams, furniture, machinery parts, precision processing, industrial materials are widely used.
Third, Price Difference
1, 1060 aluminum plate is pure aluminum plate, the production process is relatively simple, the price is cheap.
2, 6061 aluminum plate is aluminum alloy plate, the production process is complex, so the price is relatively more expensive.
