6061 aluminum alloy has good formability and bake hardening properties, therefore it is widely used in automobile body coverings (especially outer panels) such as engine covers, doors, trunk covers, roof covers, etc. It is a special purpose for automobile aluminum panels.

Hemming is an important process in the assembly and pressing process of the inner and outer panels of automobile body panels. An important indicator to measure the hemming performance of 6061 aluminum sheet is the bending limit.

Generally speaking, the 6016 aluminum plate in the O temper is the softest and is suitable for various bending. The 6016 automotive aluminum plates with different tempers and properties are used in different aspects in automobile manufacturing.

The main alloy elements of 6061 aluminum are Mg and Si. 6061 aluminum alloy has good strength and toughness, excellent machinability, corrosion resistance and ideal anodizing effect after treatment and pre-stretching. It is also suitable for various welding processes.

After special treatment (T6), 6061 T6 aluminum plate reaches medium strength, which is higher than that of 5 series alloys. It is used for the car fender, the outer panel of the automobile hood, and the automobile door. Welcome to leave message below to inquire it.
