6005 Aluminium Sheet

  • 6005 aluminium sheet is an alloy in the wrought aluminium-magnesium-silicon family (6000 or 6xxx series), which is the most widely used type of anti-rust aluminium. It is closely related to the 6005A aluminium alloy, but not the same. The main difference between the two is that the minimum composition percentage of 6005 aluminium in these two alloys is higher than 6005A (while they have essentially the same maximum value). The most common forming method is extrusion.
  • Aluminium alloy 6005 has properties similar to those of alloys 6106 and 6082 and can sometimes be used interchangeably with them, but 6005/6005A has better extrusion characteristics. The chemical compositions of 6005 and 6005A are different, however, and should not be confused. Alloy 6005 contains significantly higher amounts of silicon, which reduces the melting temperature and improves its extrudability.
  • Alloy 6005 is similar to alloy 6061. When produced to a -T5 temper, it has the same minimum tensile and yield strength as 6061-T6 and better machinability and strength properties than 6063-T6. Alloy 6005A may also replace 6061 due to its better extrudability and surface appearance.
  • CHAL Aluminium, which is one of the leading aluminium sheet suppliers in China, can manufacture and supply high-quality 6005/6005A aluminium sheet of different sizes and tempers.

The Features of 6005 Aluminium Sheet

1. High strength, especially anti-fatigue strength. High plasticity and corrosion resistance, can not be strengthened by heat treatment. The plasticity is good during semi-cold work hardening, the plasticity is low when cold work hardening, the machinability is poor, and it can be polished. Good cold workability.

2. It has similar properties to 6106 and 6082 alloys and is sometimes interchangeable, but 6005 / 6005A has better extrusion properties.

3. 6005-T5 has the same minimum tensile strength and yield strength as 6061-T6 and has better machinability and strength properties than 6063-T6.

4. The welding performance similar to 5182 aluminum sheet, but the welding performance of 6005 aluminium sheet by gas welding, argon arc welding, spot welding and roll welding is very good.

Applications of 6005 Aluminum Sheet

6005 aluminum sheet can also be used for handrail tubing, truck, trailer, automotive, bus, and rail components, platforms, ladders, structures, building and construction applications, marine applications.
