6061 Aluminum Plate
6061 Aluminum Plate – Manufactured From High-Strength, Lightweight, and Aircraft-Grade Aluminum
Bayou Metals is a global supplier of 6061 aluminum plates, aluminum, magnesium, and silicon alloy. We provide high-quality aluminum plate sheets at the best price with prompt delivery service. We have been supplying 6061 aluminum plates & sheets to the commercial and residential market as well as retailers, government agencies, nonprofit organizations for years now. We have a vast inventory of 6061 aluminum plates with a wide range of sizes and thicknesses with different finishes. Our high-quality material will make your products look like they are made out of solid metal. We can also offer you a high-grade 6061 aluminum plate in an anodized color finish.
Our most common sizes are 3/8″, 1/2″, 5/8″, 3/4″, and 1″. Most of our parts are cut from larger sheets or plates. Additionally, some of our materials can be cut into smaller quantities than the original size for a better price. We also offer custom-sized parts for any application you may have, such as 1/16″ or 1/8″ thick flat stock.
Properties of 6061 Aluminum Plate Sheets
There are many reasons why aluminum plates and sheets are considered suitable for certain products, including corrosion resistance, relatively lightweight, and low cost. In addition to these fundamental advantages, it is also recyclable.
It has a particular shape and structure, which confers beneficial properties. For example, it is stronger than steel but not as hard. It is also more ductile than steel; you can bend it without breaking it. These characteristics and properties make it an ideal choice for aircraft construction. The same properties make it ideal for making machines used in nuclear power plants; they need to be strong enough to withstand high pressures and temperatures, but not so strong that they will wear themselves out before their time.
Application of 6061 Aluminum Plate
The 6061 aluminum plate and sheet are excellent alloys for extrusion and drawing. This material has been in use for more than 50 years, with a wide range of applications, including aerospace, electrical, and automotive. The material is commonly used for parts that require high strength and stiffness, good corrosion resistance, and an excellent finish.
It also has many applications in construction, such as pipes and building materials. It can be used to make very high strength-to-weight ratio things, such as light aircraft and spacecraft. Its properties make it ideal for manufacturing precision instruments, like high-precision gauges and micromechanical devices.
6061-T6 is fully anodized, which means it is not painted or stained. That makes it an ideal choice for applications, such as signage, motorcycle & ATV handles, light-emitting diodes (LEDs), flat-panel displays, lithium batteries, and superconducting magnets. In addition, aluminum sheets can be cut precisely, so they’re excellent for making intricate shapes or ornate designs that are difficult to create with other materials.
