5 Series And 6 Series Aluminum Features And Differences

Series 5 Aluminum is a deformed aluminum alloy that contains Mg as its main alloying element, that is, Al-Mg.

5 series belong to the more common series of aluminum alloy, the main elements of magnesium, magnesium content of 3-5%. Also known as aluminum-magnesium alloy. The main features of low density, high tensile strength, high elongation. In the same area under the weight of aluminum-magnesium alloy than the other series. It is commonly used in aviation, shipping, in the conventional industry is also more widely used.

5000 series aluminum alloy represents 5052,5005,5083,5A05 series. 5000 series aluminum rods are the more common series of aluminum alloy.

6 Department of aluminum is based on Mg, Si alloying elements of the deformed aluminum alloy, that Al-Mg-Si.

5 series aluminum alloy is not heat-treatable aluminum profile.

6 series aluminum alloy is heat-treatable aluminum profile.

6 Series aluminum is characterized by: medium strength, good plasticity and excellent corrosion resistance. In particular, stress corrosion cracking tendency, its excellent weldability, corrosion resistance and cold workability, is a wide range of uses, very promising alloys.
