ALLOY EN AW-6060

Chemical Name: Al MgSi0,5

The extrusion alloy EN AW 6060 is much used in European countries and is the most widely used for its elevated hot deformation capacity, high extrusion speed and significant propensity for achieving an excellent degree of aesthetic finish, in particular by anodizing.

It has average mechanical characteristics and its propensity for deformation makes it ideal even for the creation of profiles of complex shape for multiple uses of low mechanical load.

Technical Data Sheet

ALLOY EN AW-6063

Chemical Name: Al Mg0,7Si

Extrusion profiles using this alloy have higher mechanical characteristics as compared to alloy EN AW 6060, increased resistance to corrosion, maintaining good hot deformation capacity and moderate propensity for the various types of surface finish. This alloy is suitable even for creating profiles for medium-load use.

Technical Data Sheet

ALLOY EN AW 1050 A

Chemical Name: Al99,5

This alloy is characterised by low mechanical resistance and very high hot deformation capacity; it is free from alloying elements and therefore has excellent electrical conductivity.

The extruded bars find various uses as electrical conductors in the electrical engineering and electronics industry.

Technical Data Sheet

ALLOY EN AW 6005 / EN AW 6005A

Chemical Name: AlMgSi0,7

Extruded profiles in aluminium alloy EN AW 6005 / EN AW 6005A are characterised by medium mechanical resistance, including on welding seams, and good resistance to corrosion. They are suitable for use in manufacturing in general, in the engineering and construction sectors.

The chemical composition of the alloy EN AW 6005(A) is characterised by its Cr and Mn content, which exerts an anti-crystallizing effect in artificial ageing processes.

Technical Data Sheet

ALLOY EN AW 3103

Chemical Name: AlMn1

Extruded profiles in alloy EN AW 3103 are employed where the demand for resistance to corrosion takes precedence over the required mechanical characteristics and the products must guarantee very low alloy reactivity to liquid or food contact.

For this reason, they are used in canalisation in the chemical, mechanical and food industries, in particular in the construction of evaporators and condensers.

Technical Data Sheet

ALLOY EN AW 6101 / EN AW 6101(B)

Chemical Name: E-Al MgSi0,5

Alloys EN AW 6101 and EN AW 6101(B) are characterised by medium-low mechanical resistance but with high electrical conductivity. The extruded profiles are used in the electromechanical industry to create conductors and electrical connections.

The alloy EN AW 6101(B) is characterised by low Cu and Mn content, which further promotes electrical conductivity.
