Aluminum 6061 is an alloy with excellent characteristics of heat treatability, corrosion resistance, workability, and machinability. IMS San Jose offers 6061 aluminum plate and sheet metal products from various tempers of 6061, including 6061-T4, 6061-T6, and 6061-T651. Many applications across multiple industries utilize 6061 aluminum sheet metal, and varying tempers of 6061 provide a wide range of benefits to industrial applications.
  • 6061-T4: Aluminum 6061-T4 plates are solution heat treated and naturally aged, featuring a higher elongation percentage and lower tolerance accuracy than T6. A cost-friendly tempering, T4 has excellent formability and is often used for aircraft and automotive panels, trailer frames, and packaging.
  • 6061-T6: T6 tempered sheet metal is artificially aged for a higher tensile and yield strength than T4. Offering good finishing characteristics, weldability, and capabilities for anodization, aluminum plate 6061-T6 is ideal for medical assemblies, heat sinks, hydraulic tubing, air coolers, aircraft fittings, and electrical fittings.
  • 6061-T651: 6061-T651 tempered aluminum plates are minimally stretched to reduce internal stresses, artificially aged, and permanent set. This tempering of aluminum plate is typically used for aircraft and aerospace components, heavy-duty machinery, ramps, stairs, base plates, and heavy structural applications.
