6061 is the least expensive and most versatile of the heat treatable aluminum alloys. It has most of the good qualities of aluminum, offering a range of good mechanical properties and corrosion resistance. It can be fabricated by most commonly used techniques, including welding and furnace brazing. In the annealed condition, it has good workability. The full range of T6 properties may be obtained by artificial aging. 6061 grade aluminum is used for a wide variety of products and applications from truck bodies and frames to screw machine parts and structural components. 6061 is used where appearance and better corrosion resistance with good strength are required.
