Aluminium Alloy 6063

Description of Aluminium Alloy 6063

Alloy 6063 provides a good combination of extrudability and mechanical properties. Its excelent extrudability allows thin walded hollow shapes, intricate solids, and other that are usually difficult to extrude with satisfactory finish, to be produced more easily. It responds well to polishing, chemical brightening, anodizing, and dyeing.

Characteristics of Aluminium Alloy 6063

Welding : Alloy 6061 is readily welded by the MIG & TIG processes Machining : Readily machined in all tempers given. Forming : All tempers maybe in formed, the softer tempers accepting more severe forming. Corrosion : Excellent resistance to the atmosphere. Particularly suitable for civil engineering applications.
