As one of the 6061 T6 tempers, 6061 T6511 can be used for a lot of applications and parts which require low density and corrosion resistance.
6061 T6511 aluminum grade is a lightweight material. It can offer good corrosion resistance which makes it very useful for framing, shelving, and outdoor railings.
This aluminum grade is specially designed for extrusion, typically to be extruded bars. Their available features allow mills straighten these extruded bars just like in a press. Milling and pressing process allows them to meet straightness tolerance requirement.
6061 aluminum grades may differ according to temper, or the heat treatment of the material. 6061 T6 group is known to have the ultimate tensile strength of about 42, 000 psi or 290 MPa as well as the yield strength of about 35, 000 psi or 240 MPa. It can have elongation of 8% more in thicknesses and elongation of 10% in thicker sections.
Most 6061 may exhibit same mechanical properties but once these materials are mixed with different alloys of different tempers, they can be differently measured according to their surface conductivity. They may have different anodizing rates from finishing or in chemical processing standpoint. Therefore, they appear differently when they are exposed to variant enchants.
As one of the 6061 T6 tempers, 6061 T6511 can be used for a lot of applications and parts which include:
- Secondary chambers and baffle systems
- Materials used for ultra-high vacuum chambers
- Bicycle frames and components
- Parts for remote-controlled model aircraft
- Helicopter rotor components
- Upper and lower receivers for rifles
- Fly fishing reels
- Aluminium docks and gangways
We carry a huge number of different sizes and shapes of 6061 T6511 aluminum alloy. Our aluminum alloy grades can meet or exceed many of the industry’s exact requirement and standard specifications such those from ASTM, AMS, SAE, and MIL-S.
