Comparison between 6082 aluminum alloy and 6061 aluminum alloy
6082 aluminum and 6061 aluminum belong to the Al-Mg-Si series (6xxx series) alloys. Except for silicon and magnesium, all characteristics are the same. They have very similar performance, so either can be used. AA96082 is more commonly used in the UK and Europe, while 6061 is more widespread in North America and China.
- Similar chemical composition: 6061 and 6082 aluminum alloys have a similar chemical composition, with the main difference being the magnesium content, which is 0.6%-1.2% and 0.7%-1.3%, respectively. They also contain varying amounts of silicon, iron, copper, zinc, manganese, and titanium.
- Heat-Treatability: both 6061 and 6082 aluminum alloys can be heat-treated to adjust their material properties through processes like solution treatment, precipitation hardening, or artificial aging.
- Mechanical properties: 6082 aluminum has higher tensile strength than 6061 aluminum, although slightly lower yield strength. 6061 has superior machinability and elongation, making it suitable for applications requiring easy machinability, while 6082 is used for heavy-load applications that demand high strength and corrosion resistance.
- Corrosion resistance: 6082 offers better corrosion resistance than 6061, making it suitable for use in harsh environments.
- Machinability: 6061 is renowned for its excellent machinability, being easy to work with. In contrast, 6082 may require more effort to machine due to its higher strength and hardness.
