Introduction

Aluminium / Aluminum alloys are known for their strong corrosion resistance. They are sensitive to high temperatures ranging between 200 and 250°C (392 and 482°F), and can lose some amount of their strength. However, the strength of the Aluminium / Alumin alloys can be enhanced at subzero temperatures, thus making them perfect low-temperature alloys.

The Aluminium / Aluminum 6005 alloy is a wrought alloy type. The following datasheet will provide more details about the Aluminium / Aluminum 6005 alloy.
