This allows it to be used in heavy duty structures and marine environments. The 6061 grade is the most widely used aluminum sheet and plate grade available for all types of fabrication projects.

Aluminum 6061 sheet/plate composition (For Reference)  

Chemical Composition conforms to Chinese, American, and European standard specification

6061 aluminum sheet tensile strength range 20 to 42 KSI. Conforms to AMS QQ-A- 250/11 and ASTM B209.
The general purpose 6061 Aluminum Sheet & Plate is heat treatable, resists cracking due to stress, and is easy to weld and machine, but limited on formability.

Alloy 6061 sheet metal specifications and applications

6061 Aluminum Sheet & Plate are ideal for structural framing, ggussetsaircraft, marine, automotive parts, tooling plate, architectural applications, transportation equipment, mountain bike, bridge railing components, etc, It is useful in welded structural applications.

It is precise because of the high strength, light weight, and low density of 6061 aluminum that the lightweight frames of bicycles from brands such as Schwinn bicycles, and Shimano bikes also use 6061 aluminum alloy.

Mingtai aluminum stock 6061 Aluminum Plate in thickness 0.250” through 16” thick, between 48 and 96 inches wide, and up to 240 inches long in stock available for immediate delivery.

6061 Aluminum Plate

One of the major benefits of opting for 6061 aluminum tooling plate is the versatility of the alloy. Ideal for everything from electronics and agriculture, it can also be used in storage tanks, hydraulic cylinders, pipework, construction,n and even for sporting goods.

A cost-effective option, 6061 T6 aluminum sheet, and related products are popular choices for customers that want a generic option that demonstrates excellent welding potential as well as the ability to be shaped as required.

An added advantage of using 6061 aluminum plate is that it is resistant to corrosion – a major benefit if your products are routinely exposed to the weather, moisture, or extreme temperature changes.

Aluminum Alloy 6061-T6 is perhaps the most common grade of Aluminum because of its good machinability and weldability.

6061 Aluminum Plate and Sheet Characteristics

  • Heat-treatable
  • Weldable
  • Machinable
  • Resists cracking
  • Good corrosion resistance
6061 Aluminum Sheet Tempers
Alloy 6061 coils and sheets are the most versatile of the heat treatable aluminum alloys. Though less strong than most of the 2xxx and 7xxx alloys, 6061 aluminum provides an extensive range of mechanical properties and corrosion resistance and can be fabricated by many of the commonly used practices.

In the “O” temper or annealed condition, alloy 6061 has good formability. In the T4 condition, fairly severe forming can be done; whereas, in the T6 condition, properties may be obtained by artificial aging.

Advantages

6061 aluminum properties

The welding capability of this product is great, allowing any method of welding to be used. Annealing can be performed, which will put it in a state to be easily cold worked. Any methods of cold working can be used for stamping, drilling, bending, deep drawing, tapping, and cutting.
When annealing this metal, it’s recommended that it be placed in 775 degrees F for between two and three hours, followed by a steady drop in the temperature by 50 degrees each hour, until it is down to 500 degrees F. Air cooling should be allowed afterward.
Other methods of heat treatment that can be used include solution heat treating, aging precipitation heat treating, and hot working.

6061 Aluminum Sheet

6061 t6 aluminum sheet has a high strength to weight ratio making it ideal for any application where parts need to be light.

Welding
6061 is highly weldable, for example using tungsten inert gas welding (TIG) or metal inert gas welding (MIG). Typically, after welding, the properties near the weld are those of 6061-T4, a loss of strength of around 40%. The material can be re-heat-treated to restore near -T6 temper for the whole piece. After welding, the material can naturally age and restore some of its strength as well.

Most strength is recovered in the first few days to a few weeks. Nevertheless, the Aluminum Design Manual (Aluminum Association) recommends the design strength of the material adjacent to the weld to be taken as 165 MPa/24000 PSI without proper heat treatment after the welding. Typical filler material is 4043 or 5356.

Extrusions
6061 is an alloy used in the production of extrusions—long constant–cross-section structural shapes produced by pushing metal through a shaped die.

Forgings
6061 is an alloy that is suitable for hot forging. The billet is heated through an induction furnace and forged using a closed die process. This particular alloy is suitable for open die forgings. Automotive parts, ATV parts, and industrial parts are just some of the uses as a forging.

Aluminum 6061 can be forged into flat or round bars, rings, blocks, discs and blanks, hollows, and spindles. 6061 can be forged into special and custom shapes.

Castings
6061 is not an alloy that is traditionally cast due to its low silicon content affecting the fluidity in casting. It can be suitably cast using a specialized centrifugal casting method. Centrifugally cast 6061 is ideal for larger rings and sleeve applications that exceed limitations of most wrought offerings.
