7075-T651. T651 temper 7075 has an ultimate tensile strength of 570 MPa (83,000 psi) and yield strength of 500 MPa (73,000 psi). It has a failure elongation of 3–9%.
Herein, what is 6061 aluminum used for?
6061 is a precipitation-hardened aluminum alloy, containing magnesium and silicon as its major alloying elements. Originally called "Alloy 61S", it was developed in 1935. It has good mechanical properties, exhibits good weldability, and is very commonly extruded (second in popularity only to 6063).
What does temper mean in aluminum?
Four basic temper designations are used for aluminum alloys. They are -F: as fabricated; -0: annealed; -H: strain hardened and -T: thermally treated. A fifth designation, -W, is used to describe an asquenched condition between solution heat treatment and artificial or room temperature aging.
Is Aluminium strong?
Most spinnable tempers and alloys of aluminum dent, ding or scratch more easily as compared to steel. Steel is strong and less likely to warp, deform or bend under weight, force or heat. Nevertheless the strength of steel's tradeoff is that steel is much heavier /much denser than aluminum.
