Aluminum Alloy 5056:
 
Aluminum Alloy 6061:
 
     
   
 

Commonly referred to as Alclad 5056, this alloy possesses moderate to high strength, is non-heat-treatable by cold working and has good welding characteristics. Care must be taken when cold working above 66°C to avoid stress corrosion. 5056 aluminum is our highest strength alloy and has good corrosion resistance in marine atmospheres largely due to its high purity aluminum outer cladding which usually measures 20% total thickness per side. Magnesium is the major alloying element. Applications include cable sheathing, rivets, mandrels, nails and wire screens. Common cold heating temperatures are 0 and H32.

 

Alclad 6061 is one of the most versatile of the heat-treatable aluminum alloys. 6061 aluminum's combination of high strength, corrosion resistance and good formability in the 0 or H13 tempers make it attractive for use in a wide variety of mechanical applications, especially in T6 temper. Silicon and magnesium are alloyed in approximate proportion forming magnesium silicide making 6061 heat-treatable. It also makes 6061 stable in the T4 temper. High purity aluminum cladding averages 5% of thickness per side. Applications include fasteners for railway cars, marine applications, and chain link fences.

This alloy cannot be treated by heat and has at least 99% Aluminum and is strain hardenable. It is highly resistant to chemical attack and weathering, but would not be used where strength is a prime consideration. Rather the emphasis would be on those applications where extremely high corrosion resistance, formability and/or electrical conductivity are required. This alloy is particular for applications that require a lot of work being repeated.

 

This is a non-treated heatable alloy that is hardened by cold working. It has 99.5% Aluminum. It is categorized as Wrought Aluminum Alloy. The most common application for this alloy is as an electrical conductor.
