5083 aluminum sheet and 6061 aluminum sheet are different in composition, performance, application and price.
5053 Al: residual silicon Si: 0.4 Cu: 0.1 mgmg: 4.0 -- 4.9 Zn: 0.25 Mn: 0.40 -- 0.10 Ti: 0.15 CR Cr: 0.05 -- 0.25 Fe: 0.4
6061 Cu0.15-0.4-, Si0.4-0.8, Fe0.7-, Mn0.15-, Mg0.8-1.2-, Zn0.25-, Cr0.04-0.35-, Ti0.15-
The comparison between 5083 aluminum plate and 6061 aluminum sheet for sale in composition is relatively obvious. 1.6061 alloy reaches a medium strength after heat treatment (T6) which is higher than 5083 material; 2. Aluminum plate 6061-T651 is easier to process than 5083. 3.6061 alloy has excellent surface treatment and anodic oxidation characteristics, and its effect on hard oxidation is slightly better than 5083. 4.6061 also has a certain corrosion resistance that will not decrease under the exposure to the air, but it is weaker than 5083.
5083 aluminum plate has the highest strength, corrosion resistance, good fusion joint in non heat treatment alloy aluminum plate, and its hardness is obviously higher than 5052 series. 5083 aircraft aluminum sheet plate is one of the representative products of super hardness aluminum plate in 5000 series. It is used in the situation where high corrosion resistance, good weldability and medium strength are required.
The main alloy elements in 6061 alloy are magnesium and silicon, which have medium strength, good corrosion resistance, weldability and good oxidation effect. The internal stress of 6061 t6 aluminum plate will be relatively large, which will lead to deformation of the plate in further processing steps. The most suitable processing state should be T651, which is based on T6 for stretching to eliminate internal stress. 6061 t6 t651 aluminium sheets are widely used in all kinds of industrial structural parts with certain strength and high antimicrobial resistance.       Price    6061 is more expensive than 5083.
