Aluminium 6082 is made from 2.6 to 6.1% magnesium, 0.4-1% manganese, and aluminium. It is highly corrosion resistant with excellent weldability and formability properties and medium strength – making it a popular choice for many engineering applications like structural components in aircraft, boat and automobile construction, rivets, nuts, bolts, etc. In addition to its importance for complex mechanical pieces, it can also be used in electrical wiring due to its good conductivity!
Aluminium 6082 wires are an excellent choice for manufacturing parts that require strength and good machinability. Its properties include high weldability, corrosion resistance, and moderate to low electrical conductivity. This makes it ideal for structural applications such as RVs, bridges, ships and boats, automotive components, railway carriages, etc. Additionally, due to its lightweight nature, aluminium 6082 wires can be used in aviation industries where weight is critical.
