What is the 6061 aluminum density?

The density of aluminum is approximately 2700 kg/km3.

6061 aluminum density is approximately 2700 kg/km3.

The density of aluminum is about 2700 kg/km3, which is equivalent to 2.7g/cm3. This means that every 1.0 m3 of aluminum has a mass of 2700 kg. The density of aluminum is constant, but heavier than that of water. Therefore, when placed in water, it sinks. Aluminum and its alloys have relatively lower densities than steel. In fact, it only has a third of the density of iron. The low density explains the use of aluminum in the aerospace industry and other transport industries.

6061 aluminum alloy 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. It 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 main alloying elements of 6061 aluminum alloy 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 increase the strength of the alloy without significantly reducing its corrosion resistance; there is still a small amount in conductive materials Copper to offset the adverse effects of titanium and iron on the conductivity; zirconium or titanium can refine the 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 alloy are magnesium and silicon, which have medium strength, good corrosion resistance, weldability, and good oxidation effect.

The main alloying elements in the 6000 series aluminum alloy represented by the 6061 aluminum position are magnesium and silicon, which have medium strength, good corrosion resistance, weldability, and good oxidation effect. It is widely used in various industrial structural parts that require certain strength and high corrosion resistance, such as manufacturing trucks, tower buildings, ships, trams, railway vehicles, furniture, etc.

6061 is a heat-strengthened alloy, which has good formability, weldability, and machinability. At the same time, it has medium strength and can maintain good operability after annealing.

The main alloying elements of 6061 alloy are magnesium and silicon, and form a Mg2Si phase. 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 increase the strength of the alloy without significantly reducing its corrosion resistance; there is still a small amount in conductive materials Copper to offset the adverse effects of titanium and iron on the conductivity; zirconium or titanium can refine the 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.

6061-T651 is the main alloy of 6061 alloy. It 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 has processability. Excellent, excellent welding characteristics and plating properties, good corrosion resistance, high toughness and no deformation after processing, dense and defect-free materials and easy to polish, easy to color film, excellent oxidation effect, etc.

Typical use

1. The application of strip is widely used in decoration, packaging, construction, transportation, electronics, aviation, aerospace, weapons and other industries.

2. Aerospace aluminum is used to make aircraft skins, fuselage frames, beams, rotors, propellers, fuel tanks, wall plates and landing gear struts, as well as rocket forging rings and spacecraft wall plates.

3. Aluminum for transportation is used for car body structural materials of automobiles, subway vehicles, railway passenger cars, and high-speed passenger cars, doors and windows, shelves, automotive engine parts, air conditioners, radiators, body panels, wheels, and ship materials.

4. Aluminum for packaging All-aluminum cans are mainly made of Sheet metal and foil as metal packaging materials, which are made into cans, lids, bottles, barrels, and packaging foils. It is widely used in the packaging of beverages, food, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, cigarettes, and industrial products.

5. Printing aluminum is mainly used to make PS plates. Aluminum-based PS plates are a new type of material in the printing industry for automated plate making and printing.

6. Aluminum alloy for building decoration Because of its good corrosion resistance, sufficient strength, excellent process performance and welding performance, it is mainly used in building structures, doors and windows, ceilings, decorative surfaces, etc. Such as various architectural doors and windows, curtain wall aluminum profiles, aluminum curtain wall boards, profiled boards, pattern boards, color coated aluminum boards, etc.
