Aluminum 6061 T6511 is a popular aluminum alloy that offers good mechanical properties, excellent corrosion resistance, and easy machinability. The T6511 temper designation signifies that the material has been artificially aged, which improves its strength and hardness. This particular alloy is characterized by good formability, excellent surface finish, and high thermal conductivity, making it ideal for a wide range of applications.
Aluminum 6061 T6511 is commonly used in the manufacturing of structural and mechanical parts, as well as in the aerospace, automotive, and marine industries. It is widely used in the construction industry, especially for the production of bridges, railings, and structural framing. This alloy is also commonly used in the production of consumer goods, such as bicycles, furniture, and sporting equipment, due to its high strength-to-weight ratio.
FastMetals offers Aluminum 6061 T6511 in a variety of forms, including angle, channel, round tube, square tube, rectangular tube, and plate. The angle product is available in a variety of sizes and lengths, and is commonly used in structural framing applications. The channel product is available in both sharp and rounded corners, and is often used in architectural and construction applications. The pipe products, including schedule 40 and schedule 80, are commonly used in structural and mechanical applications. The sheet and plate products are most often used for a wide variety of products and applications from transportation hardware, marine hardware, architectural structures, frames, heavy structural components, boat equipment, electronic equipment and furniture. The round, flat/rectangle and square bar applications range from transportation hardware, marine hardware, architectural structures, frames, heavy structural components, boat equipment, electronic equipment and furniture. Lastly, the tread sheet/plate offers an anti-slip surface with increased rigidity and reasonable strength often used in decking.
