What is T66 aluminum?
What is 6063 T66? 6063-T66 aluminum is 6063 aluminum in the T66 temper. To achieve this temper, the metal is solution heat-treated and artificially aged, with additional process control to yield more favourable properties.
What is AW 6063?
(Type: General extrusion alloy) The alloy EN AW-6063 is a widely used extrusion alloy, suitable for applications where only modest strength properties are required. Parts can be produced with a good surface quality, suitable for many coating operations.
What type of material is 6063?
Aluminium alloy 6063 is a medium strength alloy commonly referred to as an architectural alloy. It is normally used in intricate extrusions. It has a good surface finish, high corrosion resistance, is readily suited to welding and can be easily anodised.
What is the difference between 6063-T5 and 6063 T6?
T5 is a high-temperature forming + artificial aging. It is cooled by a high-temperature molding process and then subjected to a plastic aging state. T6 is solution heat treatment + artificial aging. After the solution heat treatment, the state of artificial aging is performed.
What is the difference between 6063-T5 and 6063 T52?
Both 6063-T5 aluminum and 6063-T52 aluminum are variants of the same material. They share alloy composition and many physical properties, but develop different mechanical properties as a result of different processing.
Can you bend 6063 aluminum?
Aluminium alloy 3003 excellent for bending Aluminium alloy 6063 is a good choice, for example, while 6082 is more difficult. I would avoid using alloys in the 2xxx and 7xxx families because they are so strong and therefore difficult to form. However, in the right temper, the bending of those alloys is also possible.
What is the difference between T6 and T52 aluminum?
A T6 Temper means that the extrusion is solution heat treated and artificially aged. A T52 Temper means that the extrusion is cooled from an elevated temperature shaping process and artificially aged.
What is T52 temper?
-T52: Cooled from an elevated temperature shaping process, stress-relieved by compressing and then artificially aged. -T54: Cooled from an elevated temperature shaping process, stress-relived by stretching and compressing and then artificially aged.
