2.6082 aluminum rod chemical composition


The table above shows the chemical composition of 6082 aluminum rods.

Alloy 6082 is an Al-Mg-Si alloy. The ratio of Mg to Si content in the 6082 alloy aluminum rod is 0.5~1.71, so in addition to forming the strengthening phase MgzSi, Si has more excess Si. In order to eliminate the adverse effect of excess si, a certain amount of Mn is added to the alloy. Mn in the alloy forms a supersaturated solid solution during the semi-continuous casting process, and the supersaturated solid solution decomposes to disperse compounds during the subsequent heating and extrusion processes. All of these dispersing compounds can increase the recrystallization temperature. At the same time, Mn reacts with excess Si and other elements to form intermetallic compounds of Al-Mn-Si and Al-Fe-Mn-Si, which improve the corrosion resistance of the alloy.

The above table is the physical properties of 6082 aluminum rod.

The 6082 alloy aluminum rod contains a certain amount of iron and chromium, on the one hand, it can eliminate the columnar structure of the ingot and improve the shape of the ingot;

On the other hand, it helps to increase the recrystallization temperature of the alloy, thereby refining the grains of the ingot and improving the mechanical properties of the extruded product.

4.6082 Aluminum Rod Specification Sheet


This picture shows a common specification for 6082 aluminum rods.

6082 aluminum rod has good operability and is widely used. Its common diameter range is 2-550mm, and the length can be customized according to customer needs.

5. 6082 aluminum rod characteristics and application


This picture shows some usage scenarios of 6082 aluminum rods.

6082 aluminum rod has good formability, weldability and machinability. Therefore, it is widely used in building profiles, aviation fixtures, tower buildings, ships and other fields. Such as: aircraft parts, camera lenses, couplers, marine accessories and hardware, electronic accessories and joints, decorative or various hardware, hinge heads, magnetic heads, brake pistons, hydraulic pistons, electrical accessories, valves and valve parts, etc.

6.The difference between 6 series aluminum rod and 5 series aluminum rod

1. The chemical composition is different

The alloy composition of the 6-series aluminum rod is mainly magnesium and silicon, one enhances corrosion resistance and the other enhances mechanical properties. The main alloy component of the 5 series aluminum rod is magnesium, and the content reaches 3%-5%.

2. Different uses

The 5-series is lighter than the 6-series and is often used in aircraft and ships. The 6 series has good mechanical properties and is mainly used for supports in the industrial and construction fields.

3. Different characteristics

The characteristics of 5 series aluminum rods are: low density, high tensile strength and high elongation. The characteristics of the 6-series aluminum rod are: medium strength, good plasticity and excellent corrosion resistance, and it is a promising alloy with a wide range of applications.
