High Strength Aluminium Alloy
Aluminium alloy 6082 is a medium strength alloy with excellent corrosion resistance. It has the highest strength of the 6000 series alloys. Alloy 6082 is known as a structural alloy. In plate form, 6082 is the alloy most commonly used for machining. As a relatively new alloy, the higher strength of 6082 has seen it replace AA6061 in many applications. The addition of a large amount of manganese controls the grain structure which in turn results in a stronger alloy.
Applications of Aluminium Alloy 6082Due to its strength and corrosion resistance, Alumiunium Sheets of alloy 6082 are typically used in construction of Trusses, bridges, cranes and in other transport applications.
