Metallurgical characteristics

  • Wrought
  • Thermally hardenable
  • It refers to alloys with an average level of strength
  • The strengthening component is the intermetallic compound Mg2Si. When the proportion of the nominal chemical composition of this compound is 0,9 %, wherein the excess silicon content is 0,4 %.
  • Manganese and chromium provide resistance to crystallization, что обеспечивает контроль морфологии и размера зерна в ходе термических обработок в технологическом цикле [2]
  • Типичное состояние материала – Т6: прессованные профили охлаждают водой после нагрева под закалку при 530 ºC and artificial aging at 175 ° C within 8 часов [2]
  • Location 6005A alloy among other alloys 6xxx series – look. picture below.

Typical applications

  • Extruded profiles and pipes, which require a higher level of strength, than can provide alloy 6063
  • stairs
  • frame details, seats and suspension of passenger cars
