The purity of 1100 aluminum vs 6061, 1100 aluminum is higher than 6061 aluminum. 6061 aluminum has higher strength, density, production cost and price than 1100 aluminum. 1100 aluminum sheet is pure aluminum sheet, the production process is relatively single, and the price is cheaper. 6061 aluminum plate is aluminum alloy plate, the production process is complex, the price to expensive.

1100 aluminum vs 6061

Uses of aluminum 1100 vs 6061: 1100 aluminum is generally used as and chemical handling and storage equipment, sheet metal work products, hollow small hardware processed with drawn goods spinning, welding combination keys, reflectors, nameplates, etc. And 6061 aluminum sheet is used as aviation fixtures, trucks, towers, boats, pipelines and other areas that need to have strength, weldability and corrosion resistance on the construction of applications.


1100 aluminum is industrially pure aluminum with 99.00% aluminum content (mass fraction) and is not heat treatable for strengthening. It has high corrosion resistance, electrical and thermal conductivity, its low density, good plasticity, and can be produced by pressure processing of various aluminum materials, but the strength is low. 6061 aluminum is called aviation hard aluminum, light, high strength, high production cost, so it is expensive. It has good formability, weldability, machinability, at the same time, medium strength, and maintains good operability after annealing.
