6061 Aluminum Sheet & Plate – China Manufacturer, Complete Range

6061 aluminum sheet is a high-quality alloy product produced by heat treatment and pre-stretching. Although its strength cannot be compared with 2000 series alloy or 7000 alloy series, the composition of 6061 aluminum alloy is mainly Mg and Si, so 6061 aluminum sheet exhibits excellent processing performance, excellent weldability and electroplating, good corrosion resistance, high toughness and other characteristics. It is worth mentioning that the dense structure of the 6061 aluminum sheet does not deform after processing. In addition, 6061 aluminum alloy can be an easily polished, coloured film, etc., and its oxidation effect is excellent. Knowing this, it is not difficult to find that 6061 aluminum sheet is a suitable material for the manufacture of precision machinery, automotive wheels, 3C products, mobile phone shells, moulds, trolley cases, alloy doors and windows.

With two decades of aluminum sheet production experience, Mingtai Al. can produce and supply high-quality 6061 aluminum sheets of different sizes and tempers.

What is the difference between 6061 and 5052 aluminum alloy

We hope by now you have a better understanding of both these amazing groups of aluminum alloys. Customers often tend to get confused between the two and fail to identify the difference for the same. However, both 6061 aluminum and 5052 aluminum serve different purposes. In order to help you with the same, we have mentioned the major differences (5052 vs 6061) between the two which you must consider.

● 6061 aluminum alloy is generally best suitable for machining purposes, whereas 5052 aluminum is primarily used for sheet metal and welding applications.

● 6061 aluminum is much harder compared to 5052 aluminum to permanently deform and at times also show formability issues.

● Compared to 6061 aluminum, 5052 aluminum has a lower yield strength. However, 5052 aluminum can serve well as it generally takes less work to the plastic or the permanent region of deformation.

● 5052 aluminum has a higher modulus of elasticity compared to 6061 aluminum alloy and therefore it excels as a forming alloy.

● A larger modulus of elasticity and lower yield strength allows 5052 aluminum to be shaped and worked without the risk of breakage or damage.

● On the other hand, 6061 aluminum alloy has opposite characteristics which make it difficult for it to deform and is also more susceptible to brittle fracture.

● 6061 aluminum has a low fatigue strength compared to 5052 aluminum. This means it can withstand more cycles of deformation than 6061 aluminum making it an excellent forming alloy choice in the market.

● In the case of thermal conductivity, 6061 aluminum alloy has a higher thermal conductivity level than 5052 aluminum alloy. This means 6061 aluminum alloy can be a suitable material for heat dissipation applications.

Below we have summarized the table (5052 vs 6061) that will help you understand or achieve a better viewpoint for both of these aluminum alloys.

Alloy 6061 Aluminum Sheet 5052 Aluminum Sheet
Temper T4,6061 T6,6061 T651 O,H32,H34,H36,H38
Tensile strength σb (MPa) ≥180 ≤225

Chemical Composition Al+Mg+Si Al+Mg

Is aluminum 5052 stronger than 6061

We hope the above 5052 aluminum vs 6061 aluminum information you now understand that in some cases 6061 aluminum is better than 5052 aluminum and in some cases 5051 is better than 6061. Which alloy to choose primarily depends on the needs and requirements of the application. 6061 aluminum might fail in forming alloy but it succeeds as a machining alloy. On the other hand, 5052 is more difficult to machine due to its elastic nature which causes excessive wear and tears on tooling.

Depending on their capabilities the usage of these alloys can be determined. Therefore to say or identify which alloy is stronger than one can be an extremely difficult task. 6061 aluminum alloy is considered a more preferable alloy for general use and 5052 aluminum is a more preferable material for welded sheet work and marine applications.

These were some 5052 vs 6061 pointers that we believe you must be aware of. You can visit our website or contact us today to get access to the finest quality and reliable metals in the market that can fit well for every purpose and need.
