5083 aluminum sheet is a representative of 5xxx series, whose tempers include h321 and h116, usually applied in marine building, while 6061 plate is a 6000 series product, whose state is generally 6061T6, 6061-t651 and 6061-t652, and t6 is the state of artificial aging after solution heat treatment (quenching). What are the differences between 5052 and 6061 plates, anyway?
5083 aluminum plate is Al-Mg series anti aluminum alloy, which is characterized by excellent welding performance and good corrosion resistance weldability: 5083 alloy has good welding performance and can be welded by various welding methods, and the strength of the welding joint can be equal to the basic strength of the annealed state. At the same time, it has good extensibility, cold formability and reliability to corrosion. With the decrease of temperature, the tensile strength, yield strength and elongation of the basic metal and the welded joint are all very high, and the initial properties at low temperature are very good corrosion resistance: 5083 alloy has good corrosion resistance in various states, such as commercial gas, fresh water, sea water, alcohol, gasoline oil, organic acid, concentrated nitric acid and various foods. However, 5083 alloy is prone to stress corrosion cracking. In order to complete the stress corrosion cracking, 5083 alloy has a working temperature of no more than 65 degrees, which is based on the above two significant characteristics of 5083. The application fields of 5083 include: low temperature application products: storage and transportation of petroleum and industrial gas, etc. High distance trains, ground cranes, pressure vessels, hulls or the outer layers of buildings, such as speedboats, navy ships and construction ships, road transportation: commercial vehicles and trailers, etc. Common engineering applications: mechanical parts, tools, tools, platforms, baseboards, voice tools, etc
The main alloy elements in 6061 aluminum plate are mg and Si, which have medium strength, good corrosion resistance, weldability and good oxidation effect. Alcoa 6061-T651 has the advantages of high processing performance, good corrosion resistance, high initial property, no deformation after processing, easy coloring film, excellent oxidation effect, etc. its application fields are relatively wide: applicable to sub aerospace, military products, tooling and fixture, blow molding mold, hot forming mold, automobile mold, electronic product processing and precision equipment processing, etc.
