6060 Aluminium Billets Stock
Commonly used for architectural sections for windows, doors, curtain walls, interior fittings, lighting, furniture and office equipment, structural applications where surface finish is important.
The 6060 aluminium alloy is situated within the 6000 or 6xxx series aluminium-magnesium-silicon family. It has a much stronger relationship to the alloy 6063 than to 6061. The fundamental distinction between 6060 and 6063 lies in the fact that 6063 has a higher magnesium content. The manufacturing of it can be done through either extrusion, forging or rolling methods; however, it is not employed in casting given that it is a worked alloy. It can’t be hardened through labouring, but is usually heat treated to create states with improved potency but lesser ductility.
Typical material properties for 6060 aluminum alloy include:
Density: 2.710 g/cm3, or 169 lb/ft3.
Young’s modulus: 70 GPa, or 10 Msi, or 303 EMEC
Ultimate tensile strength: 140 to 230 MPa, or 20 to 33 ksi.
Yield strength: 70 to 180 MPa, or 10 to 26 ksi.
Thermal Expansion: 23.4 μm/m-K.
Solidus: 610 °C or 1130 °F.
