6005 aluminium sheet is an alloy in the wrought aluminium-magnesium-silicon family (6000 or 6xxx series), which is the most widely used type of anti-rust aluminum. It is closely related to the 6005A aluminum alloy, but not exactly the same. The main difference between the two is that the minimum composition percentage of 6005 aluminum in these two alloys is higher than 6005A (while they have essentially the same maximum value). The most common forming method is extrusion.
Advantages and performance of 6005 aluminum plate
-There are the following features:
1. High strength, especially anti-fatigue strength. High plasticity and corrosion resistance, can not be strengthened by heat treatment. The plasticity is good during semi-cold work hardening, the plasticity is low when cold work hardening, the machinability is poor, and it can be polished.
-Good cold workability.
2. It has similar properties to 6106 and 6082 alloys and is sometimes interchangeable, but 6005 / 6005A has better extrusion properties.
3. 6005-T5 has the same minimum tensile strength and yield strength as 6061-T6, and has better machinability and strength properties than 6063-T6.
4. The welding performance similar to 5182 aluminum sheet, but the welding performance of 6005 aluminum sheet by gas welding, argon arc welding, spot welding and roll welding is very good.
6005 aluminum alloy was widely used at the time to knead the profiles and pipes of ladders, wheelchairs, TV antennas, stands and other products, but it should be noted that 6005 alloys cannot be used to make shock-resistant structures. 6005 aluminum sheet can also be used for hand rail tubing; truck, trailer, automotive, bus, and rail components; platforms, ladders, structures; building and construction applications; marine applications.
