Aerospace Grade Aluminum Alloy 6063 5052

The composition of 6063 aluminum is slightly different from 6061. It contains approximately 0.2-0.6% silicon and 0.45-0.9% magnesium. In addition, the composition of aluminum grade 6083 also contains small amounts of iron, copper and chromium. These elements give it excellent formability, making it an excellent choice for applications requiring complex shapes and complex designs.

In terms of mechanical properties, 6063 aluminum is less strong than 6061. It has a yield strength of approximately 21,000psi and a tensile strength of approximately 27,000psi. Although lower in strength, it is a favorable choice for applications where formability and aesthetics take precedence over strength.

6063 alloy has excellent corrosion resistance, similar to 6061. It can also be heat treated and can be anodized to further improve its corrosion resistance as well as its aesthetics. A common form is heat-treated 6063 T5, which offers a high degree of corrosion and surface wear resistance. So it is also one of the aircraft aluminum grades.

The chemical composition of 6063 aluminum alloy is conducive to improving the corrosion resistance of the material. When the mass ratio of Mg and Si elements is around 1.55, the performance is better.

Aluminum alloy 5052 is commonly used in the production of aircraft and automobile fuel tanks, fuel pipes, and sheet metal of transportation vehicles and ships, dashboards, lamp brackets and bolts, hardware, appliance casings, etc.

5052 aluminum alloy is a typical alloy in the 5xxx series alloys. The Mg content is between 2.2% and 2.8%. It is a low-Mg aluminum alloy that cannot be strengthened by heat treatment. It has medium strength, good corrosion resistance, weldability and easy processing and forming performance.

Mg is the only strengthening element in the alloy. It has a certain solid solution strengthening effect and increases the work hardening rate of the alloy. The alloy can obtain more obvious strain strengthening.

With the development of machinery, automobiles and other related industries, the demand for 5052 aluminum alloy plates is increasing, and its research mainly focuses on alloy welding processes. Welcome to leave message below to inquire what you need.
