6061-T651 is the main alloy of 6061 aluminum alloy, and it is a high quality aluminum alloy produced by heat treatment. Although its strength although can not compare with 2000 series or 7000 series, the characteristics of magnesium and silicon alloy, has excellent processability, excellent welding characteristics and electroplating, good corrosion resistance, high toughness, processing after deformation, densification without defects, easy polishing, color film is easy, and excellent oxidation effect etc. It is widely used in decoration, packaging, construction, transportation, electronics, aviation, aerospace, weapons and other industries.

Typical applications:
1, aerospace aluminum used in the production of aircraft skin, fuselage frame, beam, rotor, propeller, fuel tanks, panels and landing gear struts, as well as rocket forged rings, spacecraft, such as wall panels.
2, transportation with aluminum materials, automobile body structure for metro vehicles, high-speed railway passenger cars, passenger cars, car doors, shelves, automobile engine parts, air conditioner, radiator, body panels, wheel and ship materials.
3, packaging with aluminum cans can stock mainly sheet and foil form as metal packaging materials, made of cans, bottles, barrels, cover, foil, widely used in food, beverage, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, cigarettes, industrial products such as packaging.
4, printing aluminum is mainly used for the production of PS version. Aluminum based PS version of the printing industry is a new type of material for automatic plate making and printing.
5, aluminum alloy for building decoration because of its good corrosion resistance, sufficient strength, excellent process performance and welding performance, mainly used in building structures, doors and windows, ceiling, decorative surface, etc.. Such as a variety of building doors and windows, curtain wall aluminum profiles, aluminum curtain wall plate, pressure plate, pattern plate, color coated aluminum, etc.
6, electronic household electrical appliance aluminum is mainly used for various bus, wire, conductor, electrical components, refrigerators, air conditioners, cables and other fields.
