6082 mold aluminum sheet temper and performance

News Details
The aluminum sheets required for aluminum sheets for molds are generally high strength heat treatable alloys that require good mechanical properties, workability, and ease of processing. According to the use and characteristics of the mold, the aluminum sheet also needs to have corrosion resistance and oxidation resistance.
6082 mold aluminum sheet
The 6-series aluminum sheet is an extruded alloy to which Al-Mg-Si element is added. Currently, more than 70% of the aluminum extrusion processed materials in the world are produced using a 6-series alloy. 6082 aluminum sheet mainly has two states of O state and T state. O state is annealed state suitable for processed products obtained by full annealing to obtain the lowest strength; T state is heat treatment state, different from other states, suitable for heat treatment, with or without Work hardening to achieve a stable product. The first digit after the T word indicates the basic type of heat treatment (from 1-10), and the digits thereafter indicate changes in the details of the heat treatment.
The O2 and T4 states of the 6082 aluminum sheet are suitable for bending and forming. The T5 and T6 states are suitable for molds with good machinability. The 6082 aluminum sheet used for general molds is medium-thick aluminum sheet. Some special machining requires the use of a chip separator. Or other special processes to help separate chips, widely used in mechanical parts, forgings, commercial vehicles, railway structural parts, shipbuilding, etc.
6082 aluminum sheet is better in corrosion resistance and wear resistance. Has good processing properties and excellent welding characteristics. Moreover, it has high electroplating property, corrosion resistance, high toughness and no deformation after processing, and the material is dense and has no defects. It can also be used in products with high requirements on the performance of finished products such as tank car bodies.
