6061-T6 Aluminum Hex Bar

6061 is one the most versatile of the heat-treatable aluminum alloys. It has good formability and weldability, as well as high corrosion resistance. Additionally, 6061 offers a wide range of mechanical properties and can be fabricated by many of the commonly used techniques. In the T4 condition, fairly severe forming operations may be accomplished. 6061 is the most economical of the heat-treatable aluminums.

AED stocks 6061 in sheet, plate, bar, angle, and tube.
Other items, such as treadplate, channels, pipe, etc. are available upon request.
