6061 vs 6063
1. Different chemical composition
6061 has more alloying elements than 6063. The main alloying elements of 6063 aluminum alloy are magnesium and silicon.
2, mechanical properties
The 6061 grade aluminum profile performs better than 6063 in strength and machinability, and also has good oxidation resistance.
However, in terms of plasticity, the 6063 aluminum profile is superior, it can make the material achieve higher precision; 6063 has higher tensile strength and yield strength, showing better fracture toughness.
3, the scope of use
6061 is a high quality aluminum alloy material with high toughness, good weldability and corrosion resistance. It can be used in trucks, ships, aerospace installations, trucks, trams, molds, electronics, furniture, corrosion resistance. structure;
6063 is a very comprehensive aluminum alloy material with high strength, wear resistance, corrosion resistance and high temperature resistance. It can be used in both architectural and industrial profiles.
Commonly used in the construction of aluminum alloy doors and windows, curtain walls, various industrial frame structures, rail transit, aerospace, military equipment, automated conveyor equipment and other fields.
