Aluminium 6061 forging forms Aluminium alloy 6061 into desired shapes at elevated temperatures – usually between 700 and 900 degrees Celsius. This alloy contains magnesium and silicon as its main alloying elements, which gives it excellent mechanical properties, including good flexibility and a high strength-to-weight ratio. It is highly corrosion-resistant in most environments, making it an ideal material for components exposed to high moisture levels or harsh weather conditions.
Aluminium 6061 forgings offer excellent weldability, formability, machinability and strength. The alloy can be easily anodized to create a hard-wearing protective layer on the surface and has good corrosion resistance in most environments. Its high Silicon and Iron content also offers good electrical conductivity. It is suitable for use in many applications, such as aerospace components, automotive parts, and marine hardware.
