China 6061 aluminum sheet tempers

0 Comment

China 6061 aluminum sheet has the main alloying elements of magnesium and silicon, with moderate strength, good corrosion resistance and anti oxidation effect. 6061 aluminum sheet is widely used after heat treatment. The 6061 aluminum plate is applied to automatic mechanical parts, precision machining and various mold manufacturing. There are three tempers of 6061 aluminum sheet, that are T6, F and O.

The T6 temper is the most used for 6061 aluminum alloy, and the 6061 aluminum plate is quenched, slicing, stretching, aging treatment, saw, polishing and packing. The whole production cycle is about 10 days. After solid solution heat treatment, it does not need cold processing. It can be straightened and leveled, but it will not affect the mechanical properties.
The F temper is a free machining state of 6061 aluminum alloy. It is suitable for special products in the forming process for work hardening and heat treatment conditions. F temper production cycle is very short, slice, saws, polishing (according to customer requirements), packaging, the whole process is arranged smoothly for 3 days, customers can require heat treatment process into the required state of use according to their own needs.
The O temper is the lowest strength processed product of 6061 aluminum alloy after full annealing. Suitable for 6061 aluminum sheet which has thickness less than 8mm, its production process including cold rolled product thickness, stretching bending, correction, complete annealing, flying shear slice (or pull bending straightening finished product), packaging, the production cycle is second to the temper of T6.
