Aluminium Alloy 6061

Aluminium Alloy 6061 Stockist & Supplier

Shree Sambhav Alloys is one of the leading stockist and supplier of Aluminium Alloy 6061. Aluminium Alloy 6061 has good strength, good weldability and excellent corrosion resistance to atmospheric conditions. Aluminium alloy 6061 also has good corrosion resistance to salt water. Used for Aircraft components, marine fittings, electrical fittings, valves and cycle parts. Known for its high tensile strength and intensive texture, the offered product has been a preferred choice of our client-base spreadacross the nation.
Aluminium alloy 6061 is a medium to high strength heat-treatable alloy with a strength higher than 6005A. It has very good corrosion resistance and very good weldability although reduced strength in the weld zone. It has medium fatigue strength. It has good cold formability in the temper T4, but limited formability in T6 temper. Not suitable for very complex cross sections.
Aluminum alloy 6061 are generally utilized as a part of designing structures and segments where light weight or erosion resistance is required. We like wise supply aluminum round bars, aluminum round & square , rectangle bar , square bars in 6061 type.
