What is 6063 aluminum sheet?

Last Updated: 2018-04-24

6063 Aluminum sheet is widely used in frame construction aluminum doors and windows, curtain walls, in order to ensure the high wind resistance performance, assembly performance, corrosion resistance and decorative properties, the comprehensive performance requirements of the Aluminum Alloy is much higher than the industrial standard. 6063 alloy has lower strength than 6061 alloy, it is with good extrusion, corrosion resistance and good surface treatment. 6063 belongs to low alloying Al-Mg-Si series high plasticity alloy. It has many valuable features.

6063 aluminum sheet advantages 1. Heat treatment hardening, high impact toughness, 2. Excellent thermoplastic 3. Good welding performance and corrosion resistance, no stress corrosion cracking tendency 4. After processing the surface is very smooth, and easy anodizing and coloring.

6063 VS 6061 One key difference is that 6061 aluminum is the stronger of the two, and in the T6 temper its strength is approximately equal to structural steel. As such, it is often used for structural applications. One advantage of 6063, on the other hand, is that it’s easier to form into complex shapes with smooth surfaces. It is also very suitable for anodizing.
