What is the difference between aluminum sheet 5083 and aluminum sheet 6061?

News Details
    5083 aluminum sheet is the representative product of 5 series, the state is mostly h111, h321, h116, commonly used in ships, 6061 aluminum sheet is 6 series representative products, 6061 aluminum sheet on the market is generally 6061-T6 aluminum sheet, 6061t651 aluminum sheet, T6 is solid solution After the heat treatment (quenching), the state of artificial aging is performed to increase the strength and hardness of the aluminum sheet. What is the difference between 5083 aluminum sheet and 6061 aluminum sheet?
    The main alloying elements in 6061 aluminum sheet are magnesium and silicon, which have medium strength, good corrosion resistance, weldability and good oxidation effect. Alcoa 6061 has excellent processing properties, good corrosion resistance, high toughness, no deformation after processing, easy color film, and excellent oxidation effect.
 
Mechanical properties of 6061 aluminum sheet
 
Tensile strength σb (MPa): ≥180 Yield strength σ0.2 (MPa): ≥110 Elongation δ5 (%): ≥14
 
    5083 Aluminium sheet for applications requiring high corrosion resistance, good weldability and moderate strength, such as ship, automotive and aircraft sheet weldments; pressure vessels requiring severe fire protection, refrigeration units, TV towers, drilling equipment, Transportation equipment, missile components, armor, etc.
