Aluminium 6082 forgings are an alloy-based forging made from aluminium, manganese, magnesium, silicon and chromium. This combination gives the material excellent mechanical properties, such as a high strength-to-weight ratio and corrosion resistance. It is commonly used for components that must tolerate high-stress levels and resist corrosion in corrosive environments.
Aluminium 6082 Forging is a popular alloy due to its good machinability, ease of forming and welding characteristics. It is commonly used to manufacture structural components, automotive parts, and transportation equipment such as ships, vehicles and rail cars. Additionally, it has superior corrosion resistance properties and can be anodized to further improve its strength. Aluminium 6082 Forging also offers excellent electrical conductivity, making it ideal for applications in the electronics market.
