6000 Series Aluminum

January 5, 2022

6000 series aluminum mainly contains two elements: magnesium and silicon, suitable for applications with high requirements for corrosion resistance and oxidation. The most widely used 6000 series aluminum alloys are 6061 and 6063 alloys, which have the best overall performance. Also known as “aluminum-magnesium-silicon alloy”, it is a heat-treated corrosion-resistant aluminum alloy with high strength and corrosion resistance, and good uniformity. 6000 series aluminum alloy is currently a relatively circulated product on the market. It is particularly important in engineering applications and is mainly used for extruded profiles.
